Dumb question about tires
This is probably going to seem like a dumb question to most of you, but I'm totally new to bikes and don't know any better...what's the deal with the rear tire? All of the motorcycle tires that I've ever seen have the tread wrap around to the sidewall of the tire. That makes sense to me, because bikes lean and need that extra tread on the sidewall to keep traction. The rear tire on this bike though, doesn't have that. From the looks of the tire, it doesn't appear that you could get much lean out of the bike because you'd run out of tread. I know that's not really the case, but I can't quite wrap my head around how this tire works. Could someone explain it to me please?
