    Do white wall tires cause issues at BLM demonstrations? Or is it more appropriate to refer to them as Caucasian wall tires? Political correctness taken to the limit.

    Thats recommended by victory for the stock dunflop tire. Avon engineered cobra. Now with them being in Europe what bike did they use to design our sizes.... furthermore our bike are very diff my jackpot has 250 radial rear 90/90 21 (tubed) bias ply front. I just emailed avon with my size 300+ 6'4", and the fact that I ride it like I just stole it from the light b4. They said 34/42. I emailed them again with concers about that 34...... I'll keep u posted. I digressed when speaking a def than oem tire their may be other factors to think about.

    Would luv to see this dude do some work on cruisers. Things do always follow the same rules when the get bigger if that makes sense

    I'm not big like you but had the Chrome's put on last month. I have them set to 41/41. I've ridden on Avon's three times in the past, then to Metzler 888's now back to Avons. You'll like them. If you ride like you claim, don't expect the rear tire to last. They are formulated for grip on wet and dry. If you want long service, go to Dunflops or Shinko's (cringe!)

    A good way to stay out of trouble.
