It’s amazing how fast things change but if you’ve been watching the custom motorcycles showing up at the bike shows, created for the build offs and featured in the magazines, you’ll notice the rear tires are getting narrower, a LOT narrower. In the same way that someone finally noticed you couldn’t actually ride a bike that’s over ten feet long with some ridiculous rake, it’s also becoming apparent it’s pretty tough to ride those 360 rear tire customs. Sure, if you never have to turn and you want to go fast in a straight line, they might work, but if you plan to use your motorcycle on real roads where you might run into some twisties, that super wide tire will get pretty annoying. There’s also the danger those wide tires are going to make your bike look really dated which you may want to keep in mind if you ever plan to sell it. Interesting.
