    Saw the Fort Nine vid a few days ago. If you want to do it, go your hardest, just don't expect me to talk to you.

    This video makes it look actually ridable. I recon that if I fitted one then I'd probably need to check that my Ambo insurance is up to date

    Many Gold Wing riders doing the same thing and claim they can hardly tell the difference.

    F9, IMO, fitted a much too wide car tyre for the rim on his bike.

    I found this video Interesting and informative

    In the other video it talked about the maximum weight for a motorcycle tyre and a gold wing would probably exceed that when you and the partner go touring on it. I'm assuming there are motorbike tyres designed for such loads?
