What is meant by the "dark side"? I've never heard of it till coming here. So what's it all about? Just curious. No detailed explanation required. I've just never heard the term before.:patriot:

"Come to the Darkside....We have cookies". I'm not sure where the quote came from or why but that's what is said.
Some of the more common reasons for the change.
1. Better traction...wet or dry
2. Longer tread/tire life
3. More comfort (for passenger)
4. Cost of tire vs. MC tire (see #2 as well)
And there's plenty more. Go to www.mcdarksiders.com if you would like more info. It's a site dedicated to darksiding.

For those that don't know, "Double Darksiding" usually refers to the placement of a Car tire on the rear wheel of a bike and a "rear" motorcycle tire on the front wheel.
