Well, I had no problems during Sunday's 150 mile ride.
Oh, Fox, when you gonna post that video from that camera attached to you noggin?
Fox, great shot of the muddy ride! How did you take a picture of yourself?
What rubber are you running, Fox? I've taken the Slug down a few roads/trails similar to that, but the stock Avons just weren't up to it - slid all over the damn place and put my APF* way into the red zone.* "Ass Pucker Factor - couldn't have pulled a needle out of there with vice grips!

Got Roadriders on your bike eh ?
They're actually the stock Speemaster front and Safety Mileage rear. I've only found the front squirrely on stony pavement, but it has never put me ill-at-ease otherwise, and I ran it with street pressure, 50mph+ on dirt / gravel roads. Does rider weight factor into the experience? I wouldn't say I'm a stick, but I'm small-ish compared to a lot of guys.For full disclosure, people call me crazy on an almost daily basis, so maybe it's just not registering

Maybe it's just my C5's roadriders that aren't worthy then. I'd never say I was a pro offroad, but I like dirt (bee riding dualsports the last ten years or so) and I'm only 150 lbs soaking wet. But on one hardpack road after a rain, I scared myself so bad fishtailing around (while attempting to drive in a straight line) I had to crawl through the last 20 km in first gear most of the way. When it's due for new rubber, I'll be putting some 60/40 dualies on there fo' sho'!
H-02 / 3.50-19 M/CRoad versatile block tread pattern for both front and rear wheels. Suitable especially for old timer category of motorcycles.
those are really nice looking tires..dealer is 12 miles from my house...do u think puting a .3.5 vice 3.25 on the front would change tha handling that much? they do have a 3.25 in 19 inch but its a different tread design (not that the speedmasters are not the same design)..would 3.5 with the same design look better and handle just as well? stupid question but what the hell, i'm watching the ballgame while writing this and my boys are winning 7-2 over nats..
