    Skinny Tire Motorcycle Club

    I ride on the street with several guys who are fast as hell on various machines, including one nice Norton. The common theme among us is that most of us have "skinny" tire bikes...... my buddy Jeff just created this logo as a lark, but I like it! So, who is the rider and what bike is he on? (This is a real easy quiz). First correct responder gets a six pack of fine beer to be redeemed in person at USCRA 4th of July event.




    If you are ever in upstate NY and want to ride, let me know. Four or Five of us usually go out Thursday evenings in the summer and end up at the Man of Kent bar for a quick pint and dinner.

    no but several times I have gotten "isn't your bike dangerous with such a small tire", "How do you get all your power to the ground", "Does it ride like you are on a tightrope", and my personal favorite "can that tire support your size" (I am 6'5" and 280lbs). Last time I was visiting a friend at the Harley Boutique I heard three out of the 4 from walk-in idiots, but I have heard it from other non HD riders as well (mostly the sport bike kids my buddy hangs out with). I honestly think there should be an IQ test at dealer ships - they seem to attract the idiots of the world.
