    I have a Daytona 675' it's got a 180 rear. My roommate(very hard headed and relatively new to bikes, I have 6 years over him and most of mines on a track ). Anyway he is sitting here telling me I need to switch to a 190 but I keep explaining to him I will lose handling. I want him to read this post so hell stop

    The answer is to stay with the tire size that was on the bike when manufactured. All manufacturers go to extreme lengths to determine all variations of design for the optimal performance of the machine they are providing the customer. In other words, changing the tire size will negatively affect the performance and handling. A perfect example is all the custom V Twins with the 280 to 330 tires on them. If you try to corner a bike with these is almost impossible at any speed. The wider the tire the harder to turn.

    Not much up on your style of bike. My is just a Schwinn and it is pretty old. Havent rode for quite sometime as the bike has a weight limit of 400 pounds, so I have to lose a little weight then learn how to ride again. :rofl:

    No matter what you ride, you have to be extremely careful. There are a lot of people that fail to respect the rights of motorcyclists. I'm not sure about where you live, but here in South Carolina it is imperative to drive expecting the worst out of every driver in your surroundings. If you don't do this your chances of being involved in an accident or even worse is inevitable.

    I go to school in bama but Georgia is home, I live on lake hartwell right on the ga/sc border so I understand. There's two kinds of riders, ones who've been down and one who will go down. I'm one who's been down and seen many go down. I wear a helment even when I'm in south Carolina
