    I put on a little over 500 miles this last weekend riding with some friends...I got to follow a Slingshot and a fully traxxioned Goldwing on Saturday, lets say the pace was fairly quick and I was very surprised by the handling characteristics of the rocket... 20190513_191552.jpg

    I think 1olbull rounds the tires to the rim. Chicken strips = sidewalls :thumbsup:

    Due to their awful profile on the front tire I don't know anyone that can get the chicken strips down close to the edge like you can on Avons.

    Hopefully @Paul Bryant will see this thread and kindly post a pic or two of some of his collection ! when you wear tyres like he does , you will attract a lot of attention at your local tyre shop . when the edge of your tyre is worn , it's satisfying . when it looks like it's been attacked with an oxy acetylene kit ? Well that's one very angry rider !
