Yeah. I live right on the coast(windy) and I used to run a solid rear wheel. The wind really plays with the handling like a sail. Going over the bridges the side wind would catch the back wheel and I'd ride most of the way with the bike at a 45 degree angle. Sometimes it would catch you by surprise and things could get a little spooky on a light bike.If you live in an area that has a lot of wind cutting hoes in them will not only make them look cool but handle cool as well.
V-TwinWhere do you get those? Never seen them before, p/n?
SCTA rule 7.B.10 (excerpt) "It is REQUIRED (their capitals not mine) that front wheels be cross ventilatedby an area equal to at least 25% of nominal rim circle area." Rear wheels can be solid or covered with a disc. Maybe the SCTA needs some lessons in how to ride a bike.That whole thing about those wheels catching a crosswind and upsetting the handling is usually created by people that simply arent that good or competent at riding a motorcycle in the first place.
