i know a guy who tried that. not on a motor bike, just a regular cruiser. it ended up crushing and flattening inside his tube, so his wheels were constantly out of round, plus the gas fumes filled up spots that the foam didn't, so it had air pockets as well.

funniest thing was, since he couldn't deflate the tube to take the tires off, he had to cut them off.

so he's out two tires, tubes, and the cost of a can of expansion foam.

definitely not a good idea.
