    Why? I have never understood "The Darkside" guys. Seems awfully foolish to run a square profile wheel on a machine that leans

    try it and you will understand....
    i have it on my yamaha midnight venture. made the ride better, better braking, better in the rain... and you dont even notice it in the turns...
    I would think the right tire would do good on my GSA...

    Nope. Talked to My Insurance agent and she said if it wasnt meant for a motorcycle I wouldnt be covered in an accident.

    I have ridden my '98 GS solo with the car wheels a few times. With the rear car wheel and the stock front wheel it's a little squirrelly and squirmy...with both car wheels it's downright scary!:eek1

    i would only do it with me rear tire.
    i have a cruiser set up that way and it rocks..
    i think only 1 car tire would fit the stock rim..

    Jimmy, you can also contact "Claude" on this forum. I believe he sells the Stroker wheel for Stroker and Claude might be better for shipping to Costa Mucho.

    This may have been the trip that led Stroker to get into wheel building, legend has it his lightly loaded machine ate half of a Tourance in one long day in a crosswind and he set off to find a better way.DB
