I’d heard so many tales about the handling it was a bit worrying. I think the main reason is that you can get good rubber for 17“ which you can’t for the standard wheels. Maybe designed for American straight roads. Anyway was told front wheel was from a YZF 600R 120/70 zr17. Rear XJ900 170/60zr17.
Anyway like I said it rides really nice and I’m hooked, finally found my dream bike.

Why? For the most part, I think we have civilized folk here to know when you are joking or not. By the way, I knew you were joking. Your sarcasm font is working beautifully.

He could have cut that sentence short , by inserting " Ford " , in place of Cheverolet or Dodge , and deleting " long enough to use 5 gallons of gas ."

I guess because most of us are over 40 or 50 years old some in their 60's. But if you want some shit lol , I got a 04 F350 that will drag just about anything you want to hook to it an it can embarrass just about any newer SS or SRT stop light to stop light. An it still knocks down 20mpg on the highway at 75mph.

As far as your 04 f350 I won't try dragging it but I got a grand that says my 19 f150 3.5 twin turbo will smoke your ass like your sitting still.
