Shortened the subframe over the holidays. I took about 4" of length out, and kicked the tail up a bit. Here's my pal Caleb trying it on for size. I'm digging the stance!

How do the tires fit, no rubbing? Looks like they will rub on the fork gators if you pull them down? How close is the tire to the swing arm in the rear? I've been looking for some trials tires to put on my /5 with a beefy look. Bike looks amazing looking forward to more pictures...

The tires fit fine, no rubbing, and I don't anticipate any once I get the front end all buttoned up. I was concerned about the front tire's width, but when I got it mounted and inflated it slid into place no problem. The rear tire is close to the swingarm, not in width, but because of the tall sidewall. I'll snap some closeups for you when I get a chance.

The wheels are 18" front and rear, and the tires are 4x18". I had trouble finding a big trials tire in 19". You can get a shinko in 3.5x19" - http://tiresunlimited.com/ALL%20TIRE...241_trials.htm

The sad thing is, if this was on the BMWMOA forums, I guarantee most of the responses would be damn near identical to this.

You have to love a forum that gets a battery charger question and goes on for 88 replies. Almost all technical

Somehow I don't think I'm BMW "caliber" lol..

Man, Every time I look at the photos of your bike, I like it more! I hope you don't mind copy cats, cause I am GOING to build an exact replica, except mine will go like 250-300mph
Keep up the awesome work!!!

BTW, I love the bike, in case you thought I was being serious.
