Aside from going with a Big Touring Bike (Which btw, looks dwarfed when I sit on it... afterall, it is made for the same size guy as every other bike), what bike is bigger than the Fury? There are really 3 reasons I chose the Fury:
1) Honda makes a great reliable drivetrain. I have no interest in dealing with a Harley's mechanical issues.
2) The Fury frame has exposed,straight and simple frame tubes; this makes it a great candidate for Frame Mods.
3) I personally think the Fury is the best-looking bike on the road.
To the rear tire... Taco is correct I think; the rear fender will make it look much more like a normal bike and a Fury. I can only do what I can do regarding the size of stuff in the world. As we all know, the choices for tire mods is very limitted. The shop doing this would - of course - love to do something with the rear tire (as would most of us). i will ride it next years season, and then if I want to mod the back end i will get a custom back end so that the tire can be both wider and taller. As you can imagine, this would be another long and expensive mod, and to be honest, will likely not happen... but, hey, I will think about it for next year. As of right now, I think it looks great... what I could reasonably do, I have done... it is time to wrap this project up, and get to some riding next year!!!!
