If any of you are considering a bigger tire, this is my Goodyear tripletred 205-60R-16 . It is very comfortable riding. It did rub for the first 20 miles on the right front (swingarm). It does extremely well in the rain. I don't think there is a bigger tire that will fit without bike surgery or brain surgery.

Is that tire's tread as square looking as the photo makes it out to be?
I have looked at this tire at Sam's club Murgie, and yes they are!

Yes it is, but the ride is exceptional. You don't feel like you're riding a 'square' at all. Another giant plus is, the bike is now reading (Garmin gps) only 1/2-1 mph off. I think originally (stock) it's about 3 mph off.

Then it worked fine. For my style of riding, this tire is perfect.
We rode for roughly 150 miles yesterday and no gaint balls of flame I noticed in mirrors:p

Two Maytags. yup that was us 'cept his has pearl and makes mine look like rattlecans were near.

Before my trip I lowered my highway pegs for comfort. But in so doing, I can't lean very far on corners. Normally they are up higher and I can lean more. Of course not like Rails. I think his passenger handles might have some rash on them.

If you look at the highway pegs, you'll see how far down that arm is hanging. Works fine on the highway, but not so well in the curves.

Congrats on coming to the Darkside. Not sure I'd want to ride with those highway pegs so low to the ground. :eek:4:
