I have read so much about "darksiding" in here. Very few denounce it, though many more embrace it with almost reverence. I have an 06 wing which I think is the finest piece of machinery on the road. ( well...I might be just a little biased). I used to run Dunlop E3's but when I eventually tried Bridgestones, I thought it was a no brainer.
However, listening to all the darksiders raving on about their CT's has got me curious.
Some of my friends are horrified that I would even consider the idea, say things like, "You'd have to be an idiot to put a car tyre on a motorcycle." Then they go on to offer the arguments that you blokes have heard a thousand times.
I tried to buy a spare rear rim with a view to fitting a CT, and at least having a go at it, but there just wasn't one to be had. ( I live in Brisbane, Australia).
A friend of mine who has just joined this forum, "KimD", who has a new F6B can't wait to get his bike out of warranty so he can fit a CT.
I now this topic has been discussed before in here, but i cant find the old posts regarding this subject.
I notice a lot of the long term members in here are darksiders, and I've never heard ANYONE say anything bad against it.
My question, maybe not to you guys, but more to myself is, "Will I or wont I ?"
If I go CT on the back, what would I have to change my front tyre to, to make it match?
