Then there are those of us black sheep on the outside of the VTX hierarchy who are not daredevils and prefer to have more rubber under our back ends for increased traction and braking in wet or dry. In other words for a new guy, a CAR tire, usually referred here on the forums as 'Darkside'. There is an entire website dedicated to it, MCDarksiders.com. It's your $$$, it's your decision. Having options is always a good thing.

One of the things I miss most about not being able to ride....is the anticipation of exploding in a ball of fire(or going to hell) because I ride a CT...... .....even at 72 I like livin on the edge....

Did you realise, Piotr1 is from Poland, Europe, not from a third world conuntry or North America? Giving advices like this, (well I'm trying to be very polite this time, so I say) is not too smart. Installing car tire on his bike can get him in big trouble, since it is illegal modification.
I'm not sure about the exact regulations in Poland, but since it is part of the EU, car tire on the bike can result in confiscation of his license plate and/or traffic license, followed by a state inspection (with car tire removed and MC installed), and huge fine plus the the inspection fee (I guess, about $100 for the inspection).
BTW, traffic licenses are still different in the EU member states. German traffic licenses (this is what I saw in a car's traffic license) have info of the exact size of the tires. I'm not sure why and how it goes, but I guess (again), you need ask for a permit to change that size. Hope, somebody from germany will clarify this...

You can say anything stupid. It's the internet. No real consequences for YOU.
