2015 HD Forty Eight

look at the riders that tested them and their experience riding. i bet a GP racer would still be faster on street tires than me on race tires. but i would problay be faster with race tires than street tires on the track. know what i mean?

eitherway, its interesting to see what they came up with.

thats still a great example of how far street tire technology has advanced.
"I get a total charge out of inspiring others to follow their dreams and not to fear change. Embrace it. Realize that money isn't the end-all, be-all. What is important, what really has value, is Time. As motorcyclists, we all face increased risks on the road, and on the track. Do something with your time; don't have a bag full of regrets when the train comes to a stop. "
