      That's a well written, honest look at why we Darkside. Leave it to a car Mag to actually do it right!

        Yes, that is a very well written article about Darksiders. It would have been nicer if the 2012 Wing they have pictured in the article actually had a CT on it...rather than the Bridgestone MT on the rear.

        But excellent article, all the same.

            The really good read? The comments after the article. Same arguments against, and some of the same folks from here (and other forums...) refuting the naysayers.

              Good read indeed.Just as no amount of naysayers will get me to go back to MT, I guess no amount of us tooting the Darkside horn will get them to try a CT. Ah well, their loss . . .

                I couldn't agree more and don't even try anymore.

                    very well written article and thanks for sharing. I recently had a person tell me they may not ride with me in the future because of my choice of a car tire is not safe and all I had to say, "I will miss that time with you if that is your decision."

                        The naysayers will disregard any good info in the article just because it is a car mag.

                        If I knew it would've last this long I would've taken better care of it.

                          True, and the flames against the author and the magazine taking a stand like that by the comments seem to bear that out.

                          It's an unorthodox (to the others...) concept for many to grasp.

                          There just seem to be some that fail to understand that motorcyclists (in general) tend to be a bit rebellious in things like this...

                            That's good, more car tires for us.
