Having owned about every bike ever made Ive had alot of experience with tires. I recently rode an M109 with a Fat tire kit and WOW

THIS IS AWFUL,

Yeah it looks cool BUT

Your really sacrificing ALOT for the look... Turning which is also SAFETY goes right out the window

Id highly recommend against this, unless of course for a non ridden show bike. It truly steals the sportiness of the 109 and gives it turning comparable to a land yacht

You could also have a flat chested woman in bed with you so that she dont take up much space- but who needs all that space anyway:joke:

You did not give it enough time.

Once you get accustom to it, It handles just fine.

One little test drive does not exactly give you enough of a sample to advise others against it.

Thats why i run what i run. I don't like fighting with the bike. Guess its ok for the grandpa drivers.

I'm in for the sport of it. Not the look at me syndrome.

I don't have experience with any other tire size.This is the only street bike I've owned.What are the advantages,disadvantages to a Fat Tire.???

I'm happy with my 9.

Go to the bigger fatter tire on the fron too. It balances it out. A 160/60VR18 will fit without mods and make it handle again.

Well I'm doing the 300 as soon as my dlp arm shows up:dontknow: you'll get use to it like everything else. Fake boobs an big tires are the same, not comfortable for the owner but sure turns heads:drool: that's how I roll..

If I lived in Florida I would put a 300 or larger if I could. I mean the most curves you get are the high way ramps. :dontknow:

OK, just in case you have all forgotten... Does this guy looks like he has owned almost every bike ever made???? Since what year, 2007 when he reached the age of 16?:joke:


Sorry, I just couldn't resist:hot::hot::clap2:

He started with this



This was his first love affair with a yellow bike.....



then he got his first chopper!



So yeah you could say that ****nMOVE has owned some pretty bada$$ bikes. :joke: But the big question is what is his next move after the 109? I hear he is in the market for a new H2. And look at that it is his favorite color. I'm sure SHOOTNMOVE will have a nice little comeback after his kool-aid and nappy time. :joke:
