This guy is smart.....listen to him!!! He knows bikes!I equate the darkside thing to putting tracks on an ATV or a SxS. It's putting something on a machine that it was never engineered or designed for, just adapted to. There's a monetary and wear gain (short term to me), but long term inherant problems and woes with handling. Motorcycle tyres flatten somewhat to conform to the road surface, that's how they're made. Car tyres have a flat contact patch since cars are always trying to decrease lean angle and body roll, things like that. Stuff that makes motorcycles what they are.
You're still alive ! Thanks for checking in. The Kumo will be my next tire by the years end.Rode all last year on tire after first 50 km never gave it a second thought.
Did a trip through rocky mountains lot of twisties 2 up no problem, looking forward to this year. with same tire .
Not looking for anyone's approval for my using a CT I ride with at least 6 others using CT and we all enjoy our rides. Thanks for your opinions and thoughts.
When you say "cracks" are you referring to the asphalt tar patches? And are you saying to go slower over the cracks? Or that your machinc rides nicer over the cracks at slow speed? Help me to understand the point you are making....Rides nice slow speed on cracks...
