Default 240 Fat Tire Kit

Whats up all,

I was looking at getting a 240 Fat tire kit for my CBR 1000rr. I am going to turn this bike into a show bike. I have a 1955 Truck and 2000 S-10 extreme that I show so wanted to throw my bike into the mix. I do have another bike to ride but my question to those that have put a 240 on there bikes, I am still going to ride the bike so is the handling still rather good? I think for show reason a 300 might be better but would still like to have some function to it when I am riding it. Any thoughts? Thanks foe your time and see you on the streets. PS you can check out my other whips at http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3856662 if you want. Holla

going fast > looking fast

Ive ridden a bike with a fatass hugeass rear tire, its a joke. It sounds like you are tired of the bike, just sell it and use the money for something else.

alot of people have said it so I will say it again,
If I wanted a cruiser I would have bought one.
To each his own but why do you have to put a big wheel and tire on the back for it to be a show bike?
simply put, you don't.

Buy a Boss Hoss - don't waste your time wrecking a 1000RR.
It won't look good and it'll handle even worse.
Save your money.
