    I agree, use of the right hand has little to do with the close calls, its always the other #@$#@r!

    If you decide to leave that tire on remember this:

    The tire will WAY out last the grease on the drive splines. Don't forget to service them periodically.

    Yup, that is right, and in fact when I switched out my first CT, is was because I took off the rear wheel to lube the splines, and discovered it was wore out.

    Yes, this is truly what happens. I have a couple photos of MCs, one with a car tire and one with a MC tire, that I downloaded off of Killboy, that illustrate this quite dramatically. If I think about it I'll upload them.

    I'm running the Nexen car tire on the rear of my 07 but I don't have any pics. I put it on this past spring and have 11,503 miles on it (just looked). I did a saddlesore 1000 (1100 miles) not long after the install, wife n I rode from west Ky to Canada Niagara Falls n back (2200 miles), I went to the WNY rally (1700), and a lot of local miles. I'm guessing I'll get another 8-10k out of it. Soon as it's worn out I'll put another one on it.
