There really is no one right choice but can you explain why the mechanic thinks the road 5 is over kill ?

He said it was overkill because they're slightly pricier & the RD4s are apparently Excellent tyres so he said save the sterling & go with the RD4s , bare in mind I've never kept a bike long enough to experience new tyres . . . . . Damn the Grip ; However in March , I'll be getting the RD5 on the front .

Would a 130 tyre fit our wheels , Smiply for aesthetics I'd like a biggerr front end  . . . . I've always wanted something bigger at the front :008:

Maybe I'm contradicting myself but I will never go bigger in the front. But I went bigger at the back haha.

The feeling is perfect right now

Is that because it'll reduce the handling / less nimble?

Ive tried big Harley with big front tire and the handling is sh#t. Taking a curve is a pain
