    My Michelin Alpin has a large 8" long bubble on the part of the sidewall where the bike would ride in a sweeper. I just noticed it when I was checking my tires for riding to work tomorrow. Needless to say, the Wing will stay parked until next week when I can get the tire changed. At 28PSI the...

    Well, I've been thinking about it for awhile, and now that my E3s are down to the wear bars so, I'm ready to try one of them thar wide and wonky tires. My choice, based on advice from several folks here (thank you very much), is the Yokohama Avid Envigor ZPS. I'm not one for dragging pegs...

    So, my E3 is about shot. Down to the wear bars. Probably going darkside. I'm mostly looking at the Yokohama Avid Envigor. But when I was over at TireRack.com, I saw the Dunlop SP Sport 7000 that looks a little more round on the shoulder. Size is 185/55/16. Anyone have any feedback on these...

    Almost ready for a new set of sneakers. I ran two sets of Bridgestones and got 7,500 miles out of them. Grips was fine but had nasty wobble and pulling right with both sets. Now on E3s. Will get 10,000 miles. But slippery in the rain. Thinking about trying a set of Metzler 880s or 888s, but...

    I was scoping out possible DarkSide tires when I saw this Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol. It has a nice symmetric tread, silica and a rounded profile. They call it a Winter Perforpmance tire. I especially like it that the those giant rain groves go ALL THE WAY to the edge. Anyone know anything...

    I have a new F6B and decided to give the Darkside a try next. I bought a 2014 GW trike takeoff wheel & Tire (New Bridgestone) with the Boobs still on, and the rear wheel has a TPMS for $200 delivered.... The F6B has no TPMS. I bought a Bridgestone Driveguard Run-Flat 195/55/16 for $118...

    I've been though two sets of stock Bridgestones. They were fine. Now riding E3s and enjoying the faster turning feeling. Looking forward to longer wear. But, just to see, my next set of tires will probably include something a little WIDER. I don't necessarily care about it being a run flat...

    Got my YELLOW 01 back from the shop yesterday over the lunch hour. Had the Bridge 709 put on the front, and the Mich Prim Alpin put on the rear (my first time for a car tire). Also had the Progressive front suspension and Centramatics installed. So far, so good. Not much time to really put...

    Well I made my first ever Iron Butt ride last summer going from Southern Indiana to North central Montana. About 300 miles into the ride I was cruising along at about 70 and felt the bike become a little sluggish. As I slowed down the front became very unstable and I managed to stop upright to...

    Two weeks and 500 miles later I ran over a piece of metal & had it plugged to get home. This is driving me to the "Dark Side" quick fast & in a hurry!!! I was thinking of ordering the tire online then taking it & my wheel in somewhere to have it mounted on the wheel, then putting it back on the...

    Hello all. I did a bunch of research and decided I wanted to try it. I contacted my mechanic (Buck) and low and behold he has been putting on Car Tires on the last 17 bikes he did, including his own. And here I thought I was going to have a hard time convincing him. It has been wonderful. I...

    I am now 1500 miles into the Double Darkside Conversion on my '96 Aspencade...BT45 front and Comtrac 175 -75 rear CT.... I have been experiencing some angst over this as I learn about what I was feeling versus what I thought was happening under the rear end. The ride is different and after...

    I just bought a rim with a Falken 912 so as soon as it arrives I will be making the switch to the Darkside! Once I am installed I will be requesting my sticker, and I know I am going to regret this but what is all the talk about darkside cookies????? Thanks to everyone who I spoke to about...

    Thanks to all whom have actively posted their recomendations on this darkside forum. Last weekend i mounted a bridgestone potenza g19, 195/55-16 on a freshly "silver bullet" powder coated rear wheel. per someone's recomendation i let the air out of the tire after mounting so it wiggled over the...
