    This looks sick! Does anyone have pics of the fat front tire on a cross country? I'd like to see how it looks. ab5f953b313fc747feacbf22c02a5545.jpg

    I have about 14K miles on my front 160/60 and can't see why I'd ever want to go back to the oem size. The 160/60 is as large as the oem front fender will allow. Anything bigger and you'll need an aftermarket fender and triple trees.

    I've been hoping for years that one of the bike tire mfg's would make a 180 or 200 low profile front tire for a 21" or 23" wheel it would look way cool and would also have a larger contact patch for improved braking, every time at bike shows,when I see a bike tire vendor, I talk to them about it,but allways get the same responce,,, NAW not interested, maybe VEE RUBBER would be interested in making them, their not a great tire company, BUT, they have been willing to make tires that the other guys havent, UNTILL they see that VEE RUBBER is selling a ton of the speciality tires 23-26-30-32-34 for fronts and way up to 460's for the rear (bat cycle), the rear wide tire fad has passed but the front big wheel fad is in high gear rite now, I just wish that some one who makes bike tires, would make cool looking "functional " tires that improve performance, like a 180-200 low profile front, matched with a 200-225 low profile rear tire, that would give us NASCAR fans the same look for our bikes, but unlike the crazed look of the 30-32-34 front tires, the 180-200 front would be very functional

    That 21” will change your handling in a big way in comparison to what you run now. Tight turns and slow maneuvers take a little more work. Not to mention if you want to make a U-turn on a narrow two Lane that’s not gonna happen not in one shot you can’t fork lock it and spin it around on a dime that goes away also. Just sayin if that’s not a big deal go for it. But they handle excellent in sweepers. I’m just talking about my 21” experience not the fat tire. Honestly in all the baggers I’ve owned the 16” front and rear handle the best again JMO

    The main reason I've never considered the 21" is that I like the fat tire look too much.

    Can you even go fat with a 21” ? I honestly don’t know. I loved my Magnum but as I’ve said there is a bit of sacrifice in handling.

    That angle is a good pic. There’s another pic floating around with a direct side view. The front looks huge and bulbous compared to the rest of the bike. Here’s a rear view

    Now some will go for the big wheel stretched bag look. I would personally set it up like my 11 Xc. Lowered with lower seat and suspension. Stock wheels with maybe white raised letters
    Keeping more of a hot rod look like the Judge.
    The Ness family was interesting in the generations. Arlen loved the big gangsta look while Corey was conservative with Chrome and function then Zach came along and put the performance touch to his bikes. Making them run strong and handle. That’s more me.

    I like to look at glossy paint and chrome but hate the maintenance involved. I have grown to love the Magnum stealth that never looks dirty. So I just ride it and not think about it till one day I ran my finger across the tank. Wow filthy. When I got it home I washed it and couldn’t believe the dirt running down the driveway lol.
