The Video: Car Tire on a Motorcycle!

There's been a lot of debate about whether putting a car tire on a motorcycle is a good idea.

Well, here's some video of a bike-mounted car tire in action. The camera is mounted upside down to show the contact between the tire and pavement when riding level, through turns, etc.

See the video

You can see exactly how much contact patch (and the shape of the contact patch) meets the road in hard cornering.

Watch the video and come to your own conclusions as to whether this is a breakthrough in motorcycle engineering or the greatest advance in motorcycle safety since the plastic beanie.
