Has anyone ever gone around and checked out how many, or how few in my case, Wings you see with car tires on at a cycle event? I always do this and never yet have I found another Wing with a car tire on, or any other bike either.

yeah me too. Very few CT wings. I used to be intimidated at the thought of Going to Sturgis on my wing. Now that I've gone 2x and seen alot of Wings there, I enjoy it alot more. But I've never seen anyone there with cookies ;)

I've even been at a gas station where there were two 1800s equipped with CTs and they didn't even know about this forum and/or the Darkside.:shrug:

Yes, last year at Rockies Gold I counted all the bikes around the "Burning Stones" ring with CTs and those without. If memory serves me correctly, there were 35 out of 80 bikes with CTs. I did not count trikes either....

Yes, I do look. I actually was at an SCRC event in Bedford a few weeks past and the Wing I parked next to had a CT on the back...they even had a darksider sticker.

Can't remember the personalized plate but it was something like "WING-IT".

I particularly like parking where GWRRA members are present and watching them huddle around and whisper while point at my back tire. :lol:

I was at a bike gathering this weekend in Houston. I walked around the nearly 4oo bikes looking and talking to riders. I tried to visit with all the wing riders that I could find(probably12-15) I saw NO other CT's and did not find another winger that new of this board or about car tires. In fact, the wing owners were the hardest to talk to. NONE of those guys wanted to carry on ANY kind of conversation about anything. Nearly ALL of the "other" riders were great!! But that is a whole other thread!!

Hmmm, were you wearing them Carharts again with the camo thong? How about them fancy yellow britches? Them city folk may not be quite ready for the new countryfied ATTGATT duds.....:joke:

Bet you go to any of the GWRRA rides and you'll find almost 2 of every 3 wheels will be car tires....if you catch my drift.
