On the ST1300 site there are a few "Dark-Siders". I think mainly for the initial cost and the additional miles.
Maybe not popular, but some are doing it. There is also an insurance question about voiding coverage and false claims etc.
It is irritating that GoldWing riders get twice the miles as my Sport-Touring bike and the Vegas 8-BALL. I guess the suspension is so much better (and heavier) that they don't need softer rubber.
I am gonna stick to motorcycles tires.... If I rode 20k plus miles a year I would maybe check it out.
Wow! Just watched the video. Best one I have seen of a GW rear tire! Would like to see that done in the rain.
