Looks like a good tire to motorcycle around on. Yeah, I had the same reaction to my Austone; never gonna fit on that rim or it's gonna rub like hell if it does go on, which it did! Required some different settings and a modification to the inner fender to clear it up, but the ride is worth the effort.

Tell ya what, I've got a 5,000+ mile ride coming up and I feel very confident in my rear end!

I just installed the same tire as Pete. I can't tell a difference. If you have TPMS on your bike and run less than 36 psi you may have to reprogram the sensors. I run 36 and the light comes on for a few miles and then goes out. I will see how it does on the Cody trip and decide if I will reprogram.

So did you have to shave anything off or do any adjust things to get yours to fit Lee
