Up date, I move up to a 205/50r-17 Yokohama S Drive  just great,  I have about 15K on it now, maybe about 5k left, the speedo is only 5 miles off,  thinking about putting on a Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport Run Flat 205/55r-17, that should fix the speedo problem, It is hard to find a shop that will do the work !  but, boy if I park where their is a lot of HD's they  talk.

My buddy has a 2009 Crossbones, he put on I believe its a 205/45 -17 Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3. He loves it and it looks awesome on the bike.
I read an HD Forum and recently aguy put on a thread about using a ct. It is just hilarious how all the experts who have no experience with using a ct are so against it. I get a good laugh out of their ignorance.

2008FXSTC Custom Softtail up date

Hi , I put a 205/55-17 Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport Run Flat on my soft tail, and boy does it work ! just to review the old M/C tire is a 200/55-17. and I added a Car tire run flat 205/55-17, so the speedo is just about right, with 30lbs of air. the car tire clears the bike frame and the belt just fine. The rounder overall car tire shape provides better balance for wet or dry handling, which is to say, I can do anything from side to side , including dragging pegs which is very hard because the Custom has forward controls, I would say this run flat improves handling, and peace of mind.
