I got to thank you for the chuckles of you clowns cutting down each other and for the informative reports.
Is there anyone who is running a rear motorcycle tire with that BT45 in the front? I guess I am asking What motto tire on the rear works well with a BT45 on the front?
Geez, that BT45 sure sounds good...but I am a bit on Budoka's side on traditionalist ethics that would consider a bias ply an antiquated idea for a motto's front tire. I would suspect a radial is more appropriate design to handle the twists/turns of a front motto job.
...but then again, who would have thought that a car tire would work as well as it does?...certainly not the 'common sense' gang. If tire makers would just make a good winter car tire that is rounded a bit more at the edges, that would make the panacea of touring tires...at least for the rear tire.
...come to think of it, why can't tire manufacturers make the current front tire models with as thick as the BT45 so that we can get 22k out of a front tire? ah! $$$ there you have it.
