HILARIOUS. Pretty much slammed all the hot buttons on this site.There is only one group calling for or praying for recession and doom, I would not buy a bike with that tire on it plus the only thing I will buy that I have to work on nowadays would be a house or business that I can flip for double.
FWIW, I agree for the most part. The car tire in particular would give me the willies. I would not ride that thing until it was replaced with a motorcycle tire. Sure, lots of guys have good luck with car tires and I get why they ride on them. I wouldn't though. It is the whole choice thing. If I did ride dark side then I would change it out when I sold it. The pool of people who find that acceptable is smaller than those that don't.
Now maybe he can post what type of oil he uses and we can get an all encompassing bitchfest thread going. :thumbup:
