Whatever you say boss. I know I can hustle a car tire equipped bike up Farm Road 4 just as fast as a bike with a traditional motorcycle tire. But then again I don't ride the street like the track, so maybe I'm not pushing my MC tired bike as hard as some people are.

Who the hell knows, I know the CT works and don't think anyone is going to die a horrible fiery death or are morons for doing so even though I don't run one on any of my bikes. To each their own their choice doesn't affect you.

How dare you!?

Don't you know that rulez is rulez? If care tires are so good, why don't they come stock? Hmmm??? That person's choice to put a car tire on a motorcycle affects me deeply. I can't sleep, I can't eat, all I can do is look out the window waiting for the atmosphere to catch fire and bitch about it on ADV. You live in Texas, like me. You of all people should know that what other people think is the only thing that really matters!

The bikes I have ridden with car tires are A Gold Wing, a Valkyrie a Cavalcade and a Boss Hoss (yes, yes I know not really a motorcycle) All of them handled and turned better with proper rounded motorcycle tires than they did with a car tire on the back. The Boss Hoss was the least effected.

I understand why some want to run car tires and that it obviously can be done. The most valid reason being on a long trip and not wanting to worry about changing tires mid trip (especially when it is during hotter temps) I will also concede that they are fairly safe for the most part and if all you are doing is slabbing away the miles it can actually be a good choice.

What I will not agree with is the lies and myths put for by some of the Dumbsiders stating it is the way to go. That they handle just as good…blah blah blah…

And like this:

UN-possible.

If it were truly a good idea it would be an option right from the factory on the large touring bikes and the engineers would not be laughing at them.

This is not the place to find fellow dumbsiders. They have their own forum where you can go get all the warm and fuzzy back stroking.

You sound like a bunch of evangelist zealots. I wish you could keep to your own church and stop the proselytizing in Killboy. At least start your own thread.

Fyyff.

Don't like CT, don't ride one.

You need more fiber. Or a hug or something. You're all kinds of self righteous mad about shit that ain't your business.

based on nothing? You sell HD products? You really sound like a child repeating that silly sentence. You should try to act a little more mature, since you can't seem actually be mature.
