A cousin of my father had a Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder LC, and it definitely seems better suited to shorter folks than to me. Odd enough, I'd still rather ride a Yamaha XTZ 125.

For a long time, you could put car tires on a harley rim or even lace a spoke caddillac rim for those high horsepower versions.
Big-Twin Harleys tend to be so strange for me, with those foot stands limiting how they could lean on curves. I wouldn't be so surprised if some folks still resorted to car or light truck tires on them...
