Buell Blast Tire

My Buell Blast—a.k.a. the for Goldie the MGB —has proven to be a reliable, economical, serviceable and fun In stock form, however, were two things I wanted to 1) the handlebar height and reach, and 2) the The former was accomplished by installing Superbike handlebars that in a sportier, aggressive appearance befitting of a sport bike.

And this summer, I finally the latter.

The stock Dunlop tires had a fair amount of but their useful life—especially the atrocious. I was only able to get 3,800 miles off the rubber at the back of the bike—and I am neither a nor heavy-handed rider with a of peeling out at every green The front tire was able to get 7,500 miles before the bars started showing, was acceptable, but still not stellar.

The Pirelli is about half an wider than stock, and the one a full inch wider. In to looking cooler and meatier, visibly rounder tread allows for easier motorcycle and corner diving, and it’s not to imagine that they in lower rolling resistance

No modifications were necessary to the to accommodate either of these (Reportedly, other oversized may not fit in the rear—even if they are labeled the size as my new Pirelli ST66—without hammering of a bracket which the shock is mounted to.)

After a weeks of riding with tires, it seems like my fuel economy has remained the about 65 MPG in the summertime.

A final is that in addition to having to be less frequently than the Dunlops—saving both time and right there—the Pirellis about $10-20 less the stock tires! I purchased the Scooter and ST66 tires AmericanMotoTire.com for $66 and $76, respectively, and was free and no sales tax was collected. Superstore is another good that I’ve ordered in the past with good

Let me tell you that flogging the along Centennial Rd. by the Horsetooth was even more fun with two new Italian shoes.
