It is folly that works.

If it was a good idea it would be an option on new bikes.

I ride a Honda ST1100 and have ridden a buddy's ST1100 with a car tire on the rear. The ride was on 2 lane twisties. I'm sorry but the car tire bike does not handle nearly as well as the same bike with moto tires. Anyone who says their bike handles just as well with the car tire is either kidding themselves or really didn't ride their bike very hard.

The bike didn't blow up nd I didn't die. I know many darksiders and were I slabbing it to the tune of 40K miles a year, I might run one also. IMO 40K slab miles a year ain't a lot of fun. Different strokes for different folks.

You trying to tell a darksider that a car tire doesn't work is like trying to tell a gay guy that sucking a dick doesn't work. Both of them have tried it and liked the results. But until you have tried it yourself, you have no merit to your argument.

You are out of your element and don't have a leg to stand on. Just let it go.

Not all darksiders are gay.

(some are also pedophiles)

Like the license plate FE BT. I bet he rides more miles in a day than I do in a month.

I don't choose riding long miles to prove I can nor do I choose using a car tire.

The world would be a boring place if we all made the same choices.

Darksiders have better traction than this track bike...

When I was in Vietnam, I once saw 5 people on a scooter and one of them was being breastfed. No helmets, no shoes. That "works" too, but I don't feel the need to test it.

since you are a fucking asshole and have to bring "gay" and "pedophile" into a conversation about motorcycles, like that will make it funny and ok, I hope you get banned for a month.

It sounds like YOU have a lot of interest in both of these subjects;
Dream ride
Uranus
Occupation
beating off and crying
Which one are you?

Do I have to choose one side?
