Anyone going to Sturgis in August Anyone with a car tire that ll let me take...
I wish to be there....
Im not going to Sturgis this year but if you want to save some money make the move. I only have about 1500 on my car tire but i love it. Lots of posts on here with valuable info.
I haven't seen anything bad other than it takes a lil more effort to turn...I'm just really curious...my buddy has a Honda Shadow Ace and I told him about it yesterday now he's really curious as well...looked up videos and what size he could go up to on his...I just put a new tire on last fall so I won't be ready till this fall or maybe next spring
If you're ever in southern idaho feel free to stop and pickup my keys!
Do you ever ride in NW Wisconsin if so we can meet up.
I will be at Sturgis but if we can meet before it mite be better.
Your going to have to trust all of us that have made the switch......you won't regret it.....32,000 miles now on Michelin.....converted 2 years ago.....there are probably 3 positives to 1 negative going darkside.....actually I can't think of a single negative from my experience
At 300 mile I was still nervous at 500 I was comfortable at 1000 I didn't think about it. After that it was back to grinding the boards and ringing my bell in the turns.
I haven't had my bike up in NW WI but I been in La Crosse when I was seeing a gal from there
So the side wall flexes for a better ride but yet sticks like blue in corners, huge contact patch for brakeing and stopping for unexpected hazards (you will love how fast you can stop), a tire that accually meets your load requirements, half the price 10x the miles, no brainer, go to youtube and look up darkside, I'd rather have $300 in the tank for riding rather than spending it on the back end every spring ...
