    I've never heard of any insurance company saying they would not insure if a car tire was used. I have read of a dozen riders who have asked. The only requirement for tires would be that they are DOT approved which all those tires are. I suppose you could get a ticket if you had bald tires which would be unsafe and they were what caused the accident. When my mc tire blew out on the freeway into 3 separate pieces and the resulting crash totaled my GoldWing, the adjuster never even looked at it.

    I’m over 13k miles and due for a rear tire but DO NOT want to pay $300+ for a tire.
    if I have to stick with a MC tire I’ve found a much larger selection available if I’m will to go with 200/60r16 instead of the stock 200/55r16.
    Any comments of suggestions??

    Look closely at his photos, earlier version of the Venture was shaft drive, his photos show the right side belt drive

    This is great news. There are at least two bikes now that have done this size so I don't expect not to use the 205 when I replace my OEM. Do you realize you paid $300. less than a new OEM from a dealer? In addition, I suspect the tire will outperform the mc tire in all aspects.

    (By the way, was it easier to get the wheel off with your bike laying on its side?)

    I don't see where it mentions that being a run flat? Not sure if it would matter to me but just curious. $58.00 a tire is certainly a great price. It shows an overall height of 24.9. That should be OK too. Let us know how it works out for you.

    I hope you will keep track of the wear by using a depth gauge rather than "it looks like new" which isn't real accurate. I want to know how it is for you by next spring. Early next summer I'll be getting my new rear. I want the run flat ability, but this tire at less than half the price is tempting too. If so, I would run Ride_On sealant in it for balance and protection from punctures. I do have an aftermarket tpms since my Eluder doesn't come with a factory set up for tire pressure monitoring.
