    I put 241s on both of my bikes. I had the Goldenboy and I should have burned it instead of selling it.

    I got 4 quick little rides under my belt after I bought my TW last fall, asked for a 241 for Christmas, WOW what a difference. Admittedly, the TW is the first motorcycle I've ridden, ever, so while I didn't know how much 'squirm' I should experience with ANY front tire, it's way less squirmy than it was.

    Don't know if there IS a tubeless version, but mine is clearly marked "Tube Type" in raised letters. Yours likely is also, if it'll help you sleep better. Likely there's only the one model though.

    And although it seems like everyone's TW speedo reads wrong, sprocket changes won't affect the speedo as it runs off the front tire. Only the overall height of the front tire will. My 241 is a little taller than my stock death wing was, and my speedo was reading high, so it's actually reading closer to reality now than with the death wing but still out nearly 10% at around 100km/h.

I could send you on a nice 50 mile run with a few miles of pavement and on to a bunch of old coach paths perfect for the Dub. Gorgeous scenery up here and unlike the NY you know.

    I'm far enough east on the island it's a little nicer then the giant suburb that is most of it. But if I get that way I might bug you for the coordinates on some of the trails that way.

    Funny Tuber. I was in PJ just to go to the beer depot which BTW is not too far from the DQ where you met me to by the cycle rack on your bike. The military surplus store is still there but pretty short on military surplus stuff these days and mostly just a knife shop. This is what we call Tri States and in less than 1 mile you can be in NY, NJ and PA and in one spot you can stand on penny rock and be in all three states at the same time. I've never been to it but they claim it is there and is possible when the water level in the Delaware river is right.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
