Here is the f%&*ing tire forum

I'm getting real tired of moving threads about tires here. I don't care what model bike you have. They all use the same tires. Use this forum for tire threads. There are differences between suspension components so bike specific forums are OK for questions about them but suspension setting questions like how to set preload should normally go here.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informat...-you-have.html

Tires, like oil, so much angst goes into the choice. I prefer round black ones that hold air!

Easy tiger, it's just a forum on the internet - not worth getting all f%&*ing worked up about.

Reminds me of a limerick:

There was a girl from Kilglass
Who had quite a remarkable ass.
Not round and pink as one might think,
It was gray, had long ears and ate grass.
