Linky to a very good thread regarding this topic.
Joe created a catagory here on this site called "Darkside" where there is a wealth of information on this topic. The best part of this site of the sharing of information. You find a good amount of that there and that could help you determine which car tire is best for your bike.
If you can run a car tire that would get you nearly 30,000 miles on it for less than a MC tire ...... would you run it ?
I know I would.
It wasn't me !
