Wippersnapper Posted September 2, 2006 Report Share Posted September 2, 2006 Hello again! I have an old 1984 Honda VF 1000 Interceptor. Being a more "out-dated" bike the rear wheel is not a radial like all the newer bikes. I have ridden my dads GSR1300R with the radial rear and have felt a major difference. It was in the corners, I immediatly felt like I could lean the bike further over and it was SOLID when going through the corners. I did not try to touch down on a bike that was not mine but this planted the seed of a naggin question deep inside my head. Is it safely possible to get your knee down on a bike with the old style tyre? I have looked at my rear and it is pocked all the way to the sides on both. Also, when I have been fairly far over (what I think might be the max of the bike) it seemed to want to fall over on its side. Not the side of the tyre but completly just fall over. I have been able to pick it up with the throttle when this happens but is this the bike riding near/on the eadge of the tyre or is it a sensation I am just unfamiliar with? Thanks. ~Wip Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
