1) I don't ride street but how is the width of a tire going to protect you in the event of an accident...heaven forbid!soooo my dad is very skeptical that the drz sm is good for me...he says i should have a big stable bike with some nice wide tires and stuff and wide "so it could protect me" in case of some accident. I was lookin at some info just on the tire widths last night, my dads bike has 120mm/150mm F/R tire width, while the SM has 120/140(can even get a 150 that I saw on motostrano) aahh it's frustrating

2) There isn't much difference between your dads tire and what you have...(10mm)
i dont have a street legal bike so most likely i will be taking the csaftey class thing.. once you do that they give youa certificate so you dont have to do the riding part at the DMV.Great job trav, good luck on the riding part when you go...
