Welcome!
No, it does not sound feasable IMO.
Why?, the rear wheel is mostly hidden and spare wheels are all but give-a-ways, now-a-days.

Thanks.Never thought about running a C/T on a Scooter,but then we moved to our Country property full time and 2 miled of gravel road and I HATE the feel of it.Thinking about putting on a C/ T next time around.

Welcome to the board!

Don't know how to ask this, but... :roll: do you hunt with a hook or are you just bad? :shrug:

or ... does your name have an "ah" sound or an "a" sound?

inquiring minds and all...

Get a BMT and enjoy that gravel!:thumbup:

Welcome to the Madd House.

No need to reinvent the wheel.The one on the bike works just fine no matter which tire (MT or CT) you choose.

Welcome Crappiehunter...I've got 1.25 miles of gravel-travel to get to my driveway. The C/T helps the stability department a lot. I also found that dropping the front tire pressure to 34 pounds or less made a big difference too :yes1:

Pirilli ROF in back with a G709 up front...pretty standard fare for going Dark.
