I've been riding on Commander IIs for a couple of years with tubes. I'll keep using them.

A mousse isn't foam; it's a solid rubber (?) ring.

We're dying of suspense. Can you post a link to these "doughnuts"?

Thanks for the info! I just ordered one a couple days back, it's in the mail. I feel soooo much better knowing I'm erring on the side of safe. I had a scare once on a CB750 when a rear tire blew. I had a passenger. I was in the fast lane on the freeway. Wasn't fun. Does yours seem like it'll wear slow like they say all over on the net?

Yeah, that makes sense.
I get pretty good wear on mine. They have harder rubber on the center and a softer compound on the edges. They grip really good. I think you'll like them.
