best tire

It looks like a CT TT and a MT. And none of them held up very well. CT looked the best.

If you notice the entire rear wheel is gone. Obviously a rare case of spontaneous combustion that results in using the wrong tire on a vehicle.

I hope that this will be a lesson to all of you that are running a CT to remove them right away. Do so and perhaps the life that you save will be your own.

And if your CT is a 195/55/16 that has 90% tread on it or better, please send me a PM for my home address. I will happy to dispose of it for you at no charge.

When they say car tires are not round like motorcycle tires, it's for the safety of the rider. Clearly using a car tire on the rear of the motorcycle is dangerous and adding a rear motorcycle tire on the front simply causes spontaneous combustion......

I think it was not only the use of a CT but the lack of using a new crush washer and changing the oil at 3K miles!:lol:

You'll notice a lack of a CT on the bike. This bike obviously was abused by running a MT. The way I heard it was that the bike tried several times to get the owner to realize the benefits of a CT (a few blow outs, severe cupping, etc) but the owner just wouldn't listen.

The Wing took its own life due to its despair. It just couldn't deal with the thought of the continued use of such horrible rear tires. :popcorn:

Nope, not caused by CT but from eatting too many servings of baked beans at a barbque place along with a serving of hot wings and trying to ride all day! :wrong:
