To all you Darksiders out there... :bow:
Got to put on the CT this morning and went for a 25 mile ride. Well all I can say is you guys are right, it's a whole different ride completely. I have to admit while I was reading all the post on the CT I was wanting to do it but was afraid I wouldnt like the counter steering as some had mentioned.
Well pulled out of my driveway and felt the steering was a little different needing to counter steer ever so slightly until I got about one mile into driving and that feeling went away. It actually gets you more into making the turns and really feeling the bike and it capabilites.
Got on US-1 and brought it up to about 60-70 mph in short spirts just to check the Dynabead balancing and it is smooth as glass. Im running psi at 30 and I'm going to bring it up to 32 then 34 just to see the difference so I can get the correct setting. It seemed a tad spongy at 30 psi in the turns but will see after tuning the pressure.
Overall, I agree what all you have said the there is nothing like having a CT on a Wing. I can't see how I would ever go back to a MT.
Problem is, I have a brand new Bridgestone sitting on a rim that is now going to collect dust. :lol:
I was so tempted to really get aggresive in riding with it but I know I need to get it scuffed in before I get loose.
Overall thought... Cant believe I waited so long to make the move.
Thanks to all, for the information you have shared. It has been very valuable for all, especially people who are thinking of making the move to a CT as myself
