  • Dark side test

    Wo daring of anyone in the LA area has a spare dark side tire/rim mounted so someone like me can test out?

    I have a spare rim but havent purchased/mounted car tire. Want to test before I invest if possible.

    You have a spare rim so go ahead and make the CT purchase so you can give it a real, thorough test of say 20,000 miles. Not trying to be a smartypants or derail your quest but what do you expect to learn after a few miles of testing? Thousands of riders swear by the CT on their Gold Wings and only a small percentage don't like it. Millions of miles of testing has already been done so there are not any secrets left out there. If I would have made my decision on a CT after the first ten miles it would have been a solid "no way" but I eventually learned that the CT is better for me in the long run.

      I rode Rockys bike years ago for a short maybe 10-20 mile stretch. I felt the differences but since it was not my bike I would only push so far. All I remember is bike requiring more input to turn. Just need more time on it.

        I understand that the Pirelli P1 car tire may be the CT of choice right now due to it "rounder" features. And.... it is a run flat.

                I've got an unused Kumho PA31 size 195/60R16 for sale if you're interested. I bought it for my GL1500 but I thought it was a bit too big so I went with a different tire. I'd like to get $75 for it plus shipping, but I'm open to offers...

                      Do any Darksiders remove their CT prior to taking the bike in for service, replacing it with a MT? Anyone get hassled at a dealership for having a CT on the bike when serviced?...
