I don't intend to post a lot of 'NSR' things here, but I just have to show off my wife's newly-shod Speedmaster with the
whitewalls I bought her for her birthday, which was last April 19, but it took until yesterday to get them on the bike.

I think they look spectacular on her black and white Triumph, and probably the only Triumph model that they wouldn't look out of place on.

Thoughts?

The mrs. wants , it is best the mrs. gets. I'm sure the white walls make it more a one of a kind and HER bike. nice to do for someone special.

It looks just awful.

It looks like a child's pair of binoculars.

The motorcycling equivalent of stolen valour.

Well, Bill, I can't make everyone happy with my choices, but the wife thinks they're great, and her's is the opinion I have to literally live with, soooooooo...you know.

Our local Triumph dealer swapped whitewalls to their demo bike right away, because they thought these just match Speedmaster so well.

Looks classy.

I would have considered whitewalls on my GTS if the City Grips came in that trim. I built my bicycle in 2014, before skinwall/whitewall tires were widely available, else I would have considered them there too.

Unfortunately, the only whitewall tires I've seen that fit a Vespa are widely considered to be garbage for anything beyond superficial appearance.

Well, I have a set of them on order, so we'll see how it goes.

I need to burn off more of my GTS's original tires before mounting the whites, but I'll be sure to report back on my experience with them...and if they truly suck, they'll be off quicker than they went on.
