You've got the pictures to prove the shit you're babbling about?

Gee, If it is such a GREAT idea, I wonder why MOTO GP bikes don't use that profile...? (Or any form of motorcycle racing on the pavement)

Yeah, 40,000 miles of tread life is wonderful..cost effective..wait, I can't think of anything else to justify the choice.

No, it's not me. It's an Iron Butt rider (BTW I can't see the point of that "sport")

Point is that by the time he'd done 2000 miles of slab to get to the Dragon, a normal M/C tire would have had the same profile, but chords showing in stead of lots of rubber left.

Yellow_wolf is currently trying out darksiding: http://gl1800riders.com/forums/showt...=1#post4235927

His first and only darkside try means that he's willing to try only one tire before deciding.

The whole darkside thing baffles me. Sacrifice handling, safety, and look like an idiot for tread life. Yes, I know, I'm close minded, don't knock it till you try it, blah blah blah. Is it any more stupid than putting motorcycle tires on a car? Let me guess, that's "totally different" mmmkay..

I can... run flat technology. You can not appreciate run flats fully until you have lost pressure suddenly at speed.

Higher weight ratings.

Larger contact patch.

How about you do some homework before someone school's ya. You're acting like a little kid talking smack about how ucky girls are and you're still a virgin. Don't like it's, fine but don't bash those who do. You're just going to show your ignorance on the subject.


circus eh? this is what happens when a rider gets bored with the ""parade.

Actually neither Swain or Graham are dry since you can legally buy alcohol in both counties.

only difference is 'you' are making a statement based on information you don't possess, so basically you are just parroting.

DJFIREUSA is giving you the benefit of his experience, which you refuse to accept.

Therefore your opinion, which your are entitled to, is worthless.

Yep, I will admit the only CarTire's I have any experience with are on Dragbikes...(10"-14" wide slicks)..so Yes, I don't/won't know much about a CT on a streetbike.

240/250's on Customs, yes I know about them.

45+ yrs riding motocycles...Worthless..

Perhaps, if you get down to North Ga, you can stop in and tell me about it, change my mind, let me take that 'Wing for a spin...:)

(PS, to many variables involved in any crash to blame one thing..especially if you don't know all the facts.)
