That’s... some word salad. Can someone translate from darksiderish to English?
I'm guessing it pretty much says, F off.
Until we implement rigorous vehicle inspections like in Europe and Japan, you pretty much can run the tire you like. I do not have to agree with you, and I like it that way. So I agree, Fuck off
We all have freedom to do stupid things, but this doesn’t include having the stupidity go unchallenged.
I would never run a car tire on my motorcycle, no matter how cheap it was or how many miles I got from it.
You can make the argument that it is doable and you may/probably wont crash from it, but don't ever say that it offers better performance for people who actually lean their bikes over.
The only valid argument I will entertain is that on super heavy and loaded bikes like the Gold Wing or full dressers, with passengers and luggage, motorcycle tires may not be designed to bear that weight comfortably.
I think that may be the first time that ignorant statement may have been made.
I'm not advocating using a car tire, but I think it is funny that someone who is making an argument against car tires on motorcycles, by offering an incorrect opinion based on nothing but your gut thoughts regarding the ability of a motorcycle tire to handle the weight of a Goldwing comfortably, when the tires made for use on a Goldwing are designed to do just that, handle the weight comfortable, and safely.
First my opinion is based on more than my gut but you keep thinking that.
2nd, the weight argument was made by other darksiders and it was the only one that remotely made sense.
If it was a comment by a darksider, sorry, anecdotal evidence and not valid.
Your opinion is based on zero experience, zero evidence; therefore invalid opinion.
I ride my motorcycle to my family reunion in Michigan, always someone with zero motorcycle or bicycle experience telling me their opinion that motorcycles are dangerous and I'm going to kill myself on it... two decades later, I'm still riding.
Why are there people on this thread arguing against putting car tires on motorcycles? They should put motorcycle tires on their bikes and leave those of us who choose "death by car tire" alone.
After all, the title of the thread is not, "Is it a good idea to put car tires on motorcycles?".
It is, implicitly.
The problem is the detractors who won't concede any validity, and proponents who won't concede any detriments of car tire use on a motorcycle.
No for the most part that's not it. The problem is when naysayers who have zero experience and have done zero legitimate substantial research make incorrect statements simply based on their own personal pre conceived notions.
I don't think anyone is refusing to concede the validity of having a car tire on a heavy motorcycle which is being ridden excessively loaded, long distances, strictly in straight lines, in inclement weather.
It's when Darksiders try to convince others that it turns just fine, when the bullshit needs to be called.
Could have just ended the sentence at: "I don't think".. that sums up all the problem.
Just because you can't make it work, doesn't mean others can't, doesn't mean it's BS that needs to be called.
Please see the immediately preceding post # 3394.
I am curious what experience you are basing your comments?
Except they don't.
Squatting and bearing down.
Exercising their right to be interfering where they aren't really wanted. After the constant resurrection of the arguments and no proof of actual fact based danger, that's pretty much it.
I stop in just to see the poo being flung about... and duck...
