    Did you have to trim much to get it to fit? Let us know how it rides.

      Nothing trimmed... Fit perfect... Rode great. Very happy. Smooth, quiet, responsive, not mushy, took turns like a usually do and lots of S turns and winding back and forth while rolling 30-85...ran up to 115. Didn't feel weird at all to me. 40 psi front and 35 rear. Put Road Wing on softest setting. Hope to get fairi g on. Hope to get fairing on tomorrow or Tuesday.

        It's gotta get better mileage than any motorcycle tire. I mean, Just look at the beef on that mother.

        I seem to have lost the rundown on sizes and brands . Will you please repeat ?

      seems like you could do some donut burnouts to smooth the edges

        You can see how much nice rolled shoulder these tires have. not really pushing it at all just swaying while going down road and leaned a bit on roundabouts. Felt absolutely fine

          What's the max PSI on that tire, seems like you could jump it up and the center would pop out

            Didn't check max.... 35 feels good but I may Tru 38-40 for next ride. Run flat tires don't need as much pressure when going darkside as non run flats

              Yeah, I run 44 1 up and 46 2 up on my non-run flat Goodyear...

            That rear tire looks great!

              With fairing I get a little head shake about 85-95 mph.. Not bad just noticeable. I may try adjusting rear tire pressure up to see if that affects it... Doubt it will. Without fairing or windshield it was rock steady at 115
