    For the older guys who like to continually modify and "upgrade" their bike this is just another box to tick, then they can be all proud about how they save $200 a year in tires, after spending about $500 to modify the rear rim (if it's done "correctly")...

    It might work just fine, but its not what I will ever do...

    What if you rode a motorcycle with a car tire and it handled just fine? You rode it on all kinds of twisties really fast and you couldn't tell it wasn't a motorcycle tire? Then you rode thousands of miles behind the car tire bike and he never faltered.

    I did the above. The bike was a Goldwing. It worked perfectly. I was amazed.
    It works!!!!

    It looks dangerous but it works well.
