A new dog in the fight

Post  czech on Wed Apr 20, 2011 1:07 am

Officially joined the alumni of Darksiders today. Installed a 205/65/16 Hydroedge on my '06 1800C-3. Thanks to ya'll for all the glowing reports and excellent feedback. It saved me a butt load of time and money. Big Ten Tires matched Tirerack.com price of $150.00 plus tax out the door. Cudo's to Howard's Cycle Shop , close to Gulf Shores, Ala. for the quick and excellent , $25.00 tire install. If your ever in the Foley/ Gulf Shores, Ala area and need bike service , he's your man ( 251-970-2664). Per the forum members advice, I ground inner fender brackets. Went on a 100 mile nite ride ,stopped by the Chrome Horse Saloon @ Silverhill, Ala to celebrate and then home for a complete check over with brite light and magnifying glass. Everythings great for now.

First off , You really notice the solid feel you get riding straight up and braking with a CT . The MT tire isn't even close. You also notice the countersteer , but it's not as bad as you think it is. There is an old motocrosser tecqnique that will fix this. Upon entering your turn , press down hard with your foot , on the peg , side of the turn. You are in effect steering with your feet also ! This will countereffect the bike trying to countersteer because of the much larger tire print.
I can not wait to show all the non belivers and big box cycle dealers my brand new , BIG DARKSIDE BOOTY!!!!

glad you are enjoying it! Remember to give it time to wear off the mold release before getting to crazy with it!
