Far and away the BEST HANDLING motorcycle I have ever ridden was my 1973 850 Norton with 4.10 X 19 Avon's front and rear on matching rims. The ONLY arguement I have ever heard for the 18" rear tire is "you get a wider selection of tires" but I REALLY do not think that you NEED a wider selection!

I am mocking up my Triton and currently have a 18 inch rear wheel with a 4 x 18 tire and the fit is tight in the swing arm. Would the Avon road rider in 90/90 18 be any narrower and give a little more room for chain adjustment etc?
