It's official, 1988 Kawasaki Voyager 1200, on the Darkside.

After dragging my feet for a bit I got off my butt today and put my CT on my Voyager XII , went for a short ride and love it. Nice smooth ride, turns great. Starting off with 40lbs of air and will play with it for the sweet spot, but may be already there. Thanks for all the information I got from here to help me decide, I am now a DARKSIDER!!!!!!

Congrats, I've always considered the original Voyager to be an excellent candidate for a car tire. One of the great touring machines and a car tire just makes so much sense.

Is it possible to fall in love with a tire ? I think I have, after riding for a few days I wish I would have done this earlier, now I can't wait to get some riding done in the rain just to finalize it. Was calling for rain today but it didn't happen, Gaah maybe tomorrow bow

I've got the small brother to the Voyager, a C-10 Concours. I traded in a Kaw Nomad on the Concours and had to change quite a few habits. First ride in the rain with the Connie, I twisted the throttle hard coming out of a turn and almost low sided when the rear tire spun a bit.

After changing to a car tire, I tried the same thing and was very pleasantly surprised to find there was no slip at all, something that I'd not heard about from any darkside rider before.

Good riding, hope to meet you on the road one of these days.
