I can respond to myself on this thread.

I think that the car tire may have issues like Jimmy Stewart had in the 1951 movie "No Highway". Lets hope not.

You can google it or I will give you the quick review of the plot: : Man made devices can change over time. Airplanes that fly in cold weather can have certain problems accelerate. And people can die.

I think it was "No Highway in the Sky."

The one I am thinking of is where the aircraft model was having problems with the tail failing.

Thanks for the info Hal.

This information has been posted and discussed in earlier threads. Some have used it “prove” their side of the debate. Sort of like the infamous car tire video, which people on both sides claimed supported their side of the argument.

Hal,
....You gotta give it to the Darksiders, it has got you involved in posting...that along was worth it, ah?

What do you think about a new tire design for tourers?
What are your opinions of the present quality and perfromance of motto tires for people who want to haul (trailers, girls, gas cans,...etc) with the Wing...????

Do you have any buddies at Bridgestone that can manufacture round car tires for motorcycles for us?

Do you understand why people are seeking alternative to the present tire design for Wingabegos?...Why do you think people would want to find some other alternative to the present tires?

Cheap bastards... no if's and or but's... that's the bottom line!

Why else would somebody take a perfectly good motorcycle (that handles reasonably well) and totally f**k it up by adding a car tire, if they couldn't save a buck on regular motorcycle tires.

These same people probably recycle their toilet paper :roll:

I want to know what the actual measurements of the contact patchs, what tires were used to create the patches, what the air preasure was, what the turn angle and speed were, etc. I bet if you track down the author, you'd find out he had an artist draw out the patches based on some guess backed up by no actual observations. The practice is known as "dry-labbing your data".

Wasted effort.
Truthiness beats facts every time.


Wikipedia said:
Truthiness is a satirical term invented by Stephen Colbert in reference to the quality by which a person claims to know something intuitively, instinctively, or "from the gut" without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or actual facts.

azblackbird, sounds like your off your Meds again. You have already stated how you feel on the other threads. If you have such a hard-on about Car Tires then stay away from the Darkside List. Have you priced the car tires that are being used? They aren't cheap.

I 'll love to ride and I'll ride whatever the law will let me ride. I'll also put whatever tire I want on my "Girl" went I want. Maybe I need another glass of Wine, (while sitting at Home), But I after reading and watching what other have said that show that their education has by far surpassed their IQ, that I have come to the understanding that each person has an opinion, but only a few should open their months, that said I will add: Marines only need three things. Boots, Food and Bullets. I have 4 bullets and there are only 3 of you, so one of you will be shot twice :D .

I figure this is just as worth sayings as any of what the rest of the junk that has been said here.

I like to ride the roades on MY CT, on MY GW, so I will
