Someone needs to buy Batman a sandwich and then get him back into the gym. Poor guy looks like he's fallen on hard times

The chrome ones on each side with the visors look a log like they're intended to be "cornering lights".

The highest weight rated rear motorcycle tire is the duflop E3 at 992lbs, the stock D250 rear is 827lbs. A kuhmo run flat is rated at 1200+ lbs.


It's obvious that they can make run flat motorcycle tires, how about you lazy money stealing whorebag motorcycle tire companies start offering them to touring rides and the rest of us who want the safest tire that money can buy .....
