Donít get me wrong Iím on my second 240. All Iím saying is make use you have the confidence to strap a leg over the beast that will fight you in the twisters.
Hmm, my experience is different. The 240 tire doesn't "fit" entirely on the standard 210 rim, it is squeezed on it, which results in a more rounded tire.
The bike is easier to put into the corners and as it stands slightly higher, you do not hit the pegs quite as quick.
