Her beauty and her terror, the wide brown land for me."

Yes I have seen the video clip and he has made a few errors in his application.
First it looks like he is using a 205 tire on a 150 rim, the f800 has a tire size of 150.
The tire fit is ridiculously over size by 55mm.
There is no car tire that will legally fit the 4.25 in rim.
My setup is legal according to the Australian ADR rules and recommendations.
Correct tires size for rim 175/70/17 R1200gs is 170/70/17.
