The MC tyre was more square than the car tyre then? The CT seems to fit fine on your 15" rim though, other than like you said before about difficult fitting I really can't see any other reason for not giving it a shot. I see you're like me and keep yer motorcycle nice and clean
Unfortunate circumstances I'm afraid. I broke my back a while ago leaving me with three badly crushed vertebrae and constant chronic pain. Riding is great therapy. I have the bike set up with a backrest and footboards and great big pullback bars. It is like sitting in an armchair. However, the thought of bending over and grovelling round for ages trying to clean the thing is a little too far for me, so I do a little bit at a time.
The result is that the poor thing always looks dirty. That's life (as I am reduced to).
It shouldn't matter what other's think about yer motorcycle, it's the way you want it and that's that. It looks fine to me.
I ride pretty much everyday and with the British weather the way it is I really don't see much point in keeping my motorcycle clean, 'cause it'll only get covered in s**t the next day. Anyway I sort of prefer a bike to look a bit grubby, at least it looks ridden.
I am (a bit of a luddite) still using a mini tower with windows 7. In a few days Microsoft are ending their support of this operating system. Every now and again they send out messages that suggest (for security reasons) that I should buy a pc that runs windows 10. I have little desire to do...
They are boring and/or costly and/or faulty, sold my last time-bomb in 2017 to some desperate BMW fan.
I've owned a K1200R and S1000R, I've also ridden a RnineT, K1300R and F800GT.
