New Tire Mounted

I got my new tire mounted on Saturday.  I'll spare you the long story, but it was a huge pain in the ass.  Luckily, the guys at Twin Cities HD in Blaine came through and saved the day.  I made the mistake of trying to save a few bucks elsewhere and it wasted a good chunk of my day.

Here it is mounted on the bike:

The wheel seems to be just a little wider than the stock wheel as the stock axle spacers don't quite fit.  I've measured a few times and found the wheel is indeed wider by about 1/8".  I'll be ordering a different axle spacer.  The tire is narrower and taller than stock and I love the way it looks.  I think it'll handle well too, especially through the corners.  I can't wait to try it out in a few weeks.
