Good question, go ahead and put that back tire on the front and let us know how that works out. :shock::joke:

What makes you think that will work? I just rotate my tires forward when I drive forward, and backwards when I back up. My tires rotate freely, 28,000 miles worth. I generally rotate my tires only on the weekend when the weather is nice. Is your bike any different?

Great question. However, the tires do not need to be rotated but the air should be changed every year. Helps in the removal of the moisture build up.

Hope this helps.
I read somewhere on this board that if you inflate your tires with Nitrous Oxide (N2O) you will have a funny ride. Is there any truth to that?

"How often should Goldwing tires be rotated? "

:lastpost: front tire once every 3k mles.
:arrow: rear tire twice every 1300k miles.
:arrow: both tires 4 times every 12k miles.
:arrow: no rotation if driving solely on asphalt.
:arrow: oops - that's for H-D's.

Nah, just less un-sprung weight if you fill 'em up with Nitrous. :joke:

I try to rotate daily, except when it raining, snowing, high winds or honey-do duties. Pretty much only in the forward direction though.

I rotate my tires every 5000 miles when I rotate my crush washers. I have noticed significant increase in fuel mileage by following this regimen.

You MUST use extreme caution when rotating the tires because people in cages don't like for us to rotate them and will try their best to stop the rotation process!! JMO

In Florida...
I rotate them every fall.

I put the near worn out ones on for winter riding here (Florida).
You really don't need much tire for Florida roads,
you just need to keep the rims from touching the pavement.

In the spring,
I put the "good" ones back on for summer LD riding.

Heck, I'm getting so cheap I rotate the H7 bulbs.
.. I put the Ultra's and Extreme's in for the summer LD riding
and the cheap old auto parts H7's in for winter lunch run "rides" in Florida.

We really like to talk about riding all winter here in Florida..
.. it gets all you snow bound grumpies all worked up and that's always fun.

Hey!.. I haven't but that's not a bad idea.:yes1:

How much could I get for a pair of used Phillips Extremes?
(paid about $65 for them)
.. only used for a few hours at night crossing Montana on smooth roads at speeds averaging 90 mph.
.. no deer strikes.
(and, from a "good" 2008 bike,
not one of those unstable 2012's that beat the lights all to heck)

;)
