Thanks for your kind words.

Tires:
The front tire is there by choice, so; yes. ( 3 x 21" AVON SPEEDMASTER Mark II)
The rear is just what happened to come with the wheel (off a Suzuki T500).

Haven't decided yet what to run there.
Suggestions are welcomed.

I like Avon, tires that is.  It doesn't look like they make a 17" Speedmaster.

Avon Motorsport Motorcycle Tires:  (or is that tyres?)

I've been throwing around the idea of using Goodyear Top Fuel Dragster Front Runners:

They use 17" X 2.5" rims.

Pretty sure this is what Willie is running.  Not sure what front wheel that is, but pics here.

John Buddenbaum says that he uses the Front Runners on his Buddfab streamliner.  He went 150mph with it.

I'm sure they are fine tires ...for going reallyreallyreallyreally fast.

I only plan on going reallyfast..-like.

I could very well be wrong but,
I think I'll be better of with a tire with a tad more bite/traction,
at the expense of (in my case unnecessary) ultra high speed-rating
or....?

Ohh gawd!...hernia
