Seems to me like Baldy is avoiding any chance of traveling with you.... Tell me your flights so I can book alternate routes/times....  :empathy3:

It went on great Pat!  There looks to be nearly a half inch of clearance.  I think there is no issue because the entire set up is R1 from the swingarm pivot back......  This tire is 14.5mm larger in diameter than the 180/50 that was on there so it should lower my RPM's at speed a bit....

Can't wait to break these in!
