No. :D

Let's see how many from both sides have to feed us BS to support their view.

My answer was Yes, but a qualified one; not around this part of the country, but if I were a flat lander, I would experiment with it.

You really need a couple more choices there - I have not "yet" put a car tire on a wing, but might. I've rode my friend's VTX with a 205 size car tire and was VERY surprised how well it handled - that means I could actually ride it! I do not wish one on my bike, but he says he likes it - but he's "different".....

I'd sure like to ride a wing with the 195 tire to see if it handles half as well as some folks claim - I'm pretty open minded.

I answered NO, but I'm going to put two :shock: of them on my bike next month.


That's when I will be triking it with a new CSC kit! :lol:

"Laen"
Not to start a flame, but.......Wow.......Here's an "Iron Butted' rider that also pulls a trailer, that just can't seem to see the logic in running a better tire......
.
And yes..Blahh, Blahh, freedom of choice.........What can this "Poll" possibly shed light on or prove.........
.
To answer this mind numbing question........Sure, why not.............Oh yeah, I've already done it...........and I haven't fallen of the edge of the world.

Dr. Blackbird-The poll is intended to poll how many Goldwing riders would put a car tire on the back of their motorcycle. Nothing more , nothing less. Each is intitled to their JMHO, sarcastic comments, one sided opinions,two sided opinions, etc...

Well Laen, when you start a poll with a statement that includes the word "B.S."...You're off to a rocky start.
.
You asked to be "Fed BS" so I'm just trying to be helpful. But in this case I didn't include any BS, just my seat of the pants opinion, 1000+ miles on C/T. Guessing that you're leaning to the "No Way, Dude" side....Do you have any personal seat time on a C/T?
.
.
Luv Ya Man,..but you still can't have my Bud-lite, or my C/T

There are some who want to make a sportbike out of the Wing so I guess some should have the right to make a sportscar out of it. :wink: :wink:

Will I do it? H$LL NO..Plain and simple. That is what make the freedom of choice so nice... To Each His Own...

I decided I wanted a cruiser type bike so guess what!!! I bought one. I could not figure out how to make one out of the Goldwing. :wink: :wink:

Oh yes, I kept the Wing. This makes for two very different types of riding. Someday if I live long enough I might sell all the bikes and settle on one but right now I am having way too much fun experiencing them all. I am 55 years young and only been riding for about five summers. I have a lot of catching up to do... :wink: :wink:

Seriously I will probably never own a crotch rocket. I would want to ride it like it was meant to ride and I would be way over my head when I started it up... I will stay away from them..
