Ever considered running at 190-55? The tip in is quicker and its a tad taller so it fixes the speedo discrepancy on most bikes.

I’ve heard other OR members speak of what you’re saying but I’m so used to the bike the way is now. I could see me tipping right into the asphalt with this quicker tip in you speak of. I probably should give it try at some point.

It made a world of difference on my heavy pig. Made the bike fell 200 lbs lighter going into a turn. I'll still run 190-50's too somtimes but when going from one to the other it's always a reminder of how different they are.

Different tire models can have different tip in too since there's no std  profile or sidewall circumference specs  per tire size. 

That said, the profile changes when weight is on it anyway. I wonder if the radial belts  don't affect tip in as much as profile.
