It would seem that a fundamental basic element of motorcycle tire design is being purposely ignored in going to the 'dark side', and that is the relationship of the tire profile to your ability to corner successfully. The rounded profile of a motorcycle tire can be likened to a styrofoam cup on it's side. The decreasing circumference relates directly to your ability to initially turn in, and further, your ability to tighten up or loosen your path. 'Darksiding' ignores every single element of tire design for motorcycles as well as automobiles with the exception of upright tire wear (compound, bead design, carcass design, tread patttern). The load capacity of Continental's Contimotion tires suggests that at it's limit it could be used on a car, and at $75 they are as cheap as some car tires. I would like to see the outcome of a fitment in that order...or not. This subject really is not a question of opinion, and frankly those that would support such a venture reflect ignorance.
