To improve excitement in MotoGP, they should switch to those Firestones that are on every cafe bike these days.

Where can I get a set? Old timers swear that they NEVER wore out. Can you imagine 100,000 miles on a set of tires?

I'm sure you nab a pair off a '40s dump truck or something.

I think I should close this thread and start a new thread on the 790cc vs 865cc.

That's sick and disturbing! You wouldn't do such a thing, would you?

It all depends on whether you wear an open face helmet or not

Can you lot stop arguing and answer my questions NOW . Can I fit a 330 tyre to my standard rim and ride round the outside of Valentino Rossi ? And I've also heard that if you use second hand cooking oil in your engine , you never have to change it and the the valves never need adjusting . Carbs rule and EFI is the work of the devil . I have an acetylene lantern fitted to the front of my bonny and it is better than any high wattage , xenon electric rubbish .

Yes, Johnh, you can fit a 330 tire to the standard rim but only the front rim. The rear still needs a 130 to balance out the handling.

Don't forget to weld on a hardtail to further increase the handling.
