The economics are just untenable.
Ordered a car tire for it and am going darkside.
A thousand miles per month......I say you'll get 3 years + out of your new Darkside. Just remember it will take a little (not much) countersteer in the curves. After a couple rides you won't notice much difference.

Im expecting just a hair over 2 riding seasons out of the "alternate" tire ;)
It was actually more like 3 months for this last Shinko, I got essentially no riding done in December between foul weather and the holidays.
My Goldwing is Darkside already, put between 15,000 and 20,000 on the Bridgestone Driveguard on it.
The extra bar input required in the corners is unfortunate but is what it is. The economics can't be argued with
