Hello and good day to all I have been searching here about said topic a car tire for burgman 650 bike, I am still a good bit aways from having to get a new tire but a friend of mine has replaced at least 2 rear tires now and may need to get a new one before years end he puts a lot of miles on his bike, so we are looking for any and all info from our fellow burgman riders, mostly form those with pictures of their bikes with dark side tires on and how they ride for you, Like I said I am a ways away but may consider this, my ride is usually from home to work about a 30 min. ride one way from my gravel drive way to hard surface road and then back, my friend ride mostly highways he has a lot of rental property and rides to do things and we sometimes take day trips for a few hours a month during spring and summer time, Our Burgmans are relax and down time from a pretty busy lift with work and family, anyways any and all info would be great Thanks to all, and happy trails and ride safe. Zack

You could also PM a Darkside member, most will respond.

My point of entry is always "View active topics", since I don't want to miss any new discussions.

As for darksiding: The flat car tire with a real pattern is much better on gravel than the rounded OEM with decorative thread pattern.
Your friend running up miles on the odo will be happy going dark, since his tire costs will drop considerably, with very little loss in handling qualiy.

My Apologies to all for the many threads I was just trying to get an answer and some info and wasn't for sure where to post it from now on I'll keep it to one thread and hope the right people with the answer or info I'm looking for can help. And thank you to all who have Helped, I'll also take some time and RE-read the rules and regulations since the new owners have acquired this site. I only briefly read them when I first joined a few years back. Thanks again to all and happy trails. Zack

As they said when I went to Squadron Officer's School, "Cooperate and Graduate". We're all in this together. :) No harm done, and no offense taken by either myself who moved the posts, or Jim who was right behind me. :)

It would help if you keep your questions in the one thread that I set up initially to discuss what works for Darksiding, and what doesn't. It'll keep the flame wars down because we won't tolerate it in that thread. If you start a separate thread, you invite the posts that will tell you how you will die from using a car tire on a motorcycle. It's extremely hard to decide when someone strays from commenting on the topic, and when it becomes a personal attack.

Hello to al;l one more question, If a car tire is put on will the motorcycle shop inspect it or would I have to take the bike to an auto shop and let them do the inspection? Thanks again to all for helpful Info. Zack
