http://www.webbikeworld.com/Motorcyc.../tire-data.htm

The Shinko 700 comes in 5.10-17.

Is this right?
There are 25.4 mm in an inch 130/25.4 = 5.12 in. or therebouts. That is the width. The "80" in the tire size is the percentage of the widh that make up the height. In other words, 5.12 x 0.80 = 4.1 in. tall. So to answer your ? Yes, it should be a 5.10 or close.

We passed a SMT 990 around Lookout on Rt 60 yesterday (5:30ish), anyone on here?

To the Douche Nozzle on Rt 60 on the fat tire cruiser with his chick on the back, please move over and let the LONG line of traffic around you. You ruin everyones day by becoming a rolling road block. Blasting your pipes wide open on the straights didnt make up for the fact you almost wiped out in every turn. FWIW we werent racing you we were just trying to get home, there was no need to run WFO just to tailgate us on the long straights.

To the FUCKWAD in the white acura SUV, you went left of center in EVERY turn, you will kill a motorcyclist one day.

the idoits were out in full force yesterday both cagers and two wheels.

I'd consider joining up with you fellas but 2 hours one way in this shit they call Spring is not going to happen. Maybe next time when the weather is a little more cooperative.

I might be home next weekend. Just over an hour from your place to mine.
Might be warmer, but I doubt it.
