    Perhaps I should have said at 240mm 'fatter than most?' The V-Rod below is fat at 300mm, the conversion for which stands at just shy of £3k. I did ask as it looks cool as Polar Bear Poo! Apparently on a Breakout you can go to 250mm max without any hassle?



    Let's face it most Harley-Davidsons have standard wheels thinner than those fitted to an Ice Cream Van usually and the same 0-60 timing.

    Great choice! Lovely colour too Mike. I saw one in the flesh at Southampton Dealership. It is a shame that the rear fender flame design is mostly obscured by the pillion seat. Went solo seat on mine and it looked really cool but without the support offered by the pillion seat it can be difficult to keep your arse on it!

    Nice colour - I've always liked deep red colours on bikes.

    I didn't like the Breakout when I rode one - didn't find it comfy and the wide rear end isn't good for corners. Like the looks though but not for me.

    The whole bike ain't good for cornering irrespective of the rear wheel size. The standard Breakout has a longer wheelbase and rake than mine which would make it even worse. The badass looks compensate though.

    It wasn't bought to make progress, quiet the opposite actually. I wanted something to just poodle about on,
    I still have a Tiger that I can make good time on if needed

    I can assure you in 'controlled conditions' with all three emergency services on standby it is indeed.
