Welcome To the Darkside! Vader
Unless your policy has specific language in it that prohibits the use of a car tire then you are covered.
I'd be more concerned with how they feel about motorcycle pulled trailers...
Otherwise tell them you are having a great time! thumbup

I'm with Progressive myself. No point in bringing it up to them anyway - most folks who inquired found out the law just requires a DOT certified tire, and the insurance boys just want to see proper tread depth. They'd actually be overjoyed if they knew how much more safe the DS is.

The CT gives me that extra cold wet weather traction I need to ride all year. There is no bad weather, per se.
There is just insufficient gear. No, I don't do ice and snow. No ice lugs down here!
