Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

You are opening up a can of worms on this one. There are several websites devoted to darksiding. (Riding on the Darkside has a section devoted to Victory.)Yes, it can be done on the CORE based bikes.

Void the warrantee? If your dealer thinks it will, go to another dealer, IMHO.

Ride safe.

Darkside is an interesting subject. I am sure the "experts" on it will be along.

As for voiding a waranty? Are you kidding me? They are "experts" too. Probably have thousands of miles on them, every one.

If you want, do it. The only thing that they might be able to harp on is if the rear rim went bad. Just a chance you have to take.
MC will pass inspection here with a DS tire.

Go to a DS forum and check it out, dealers, manufacturers, and "experts" will all tell you their delaminating tires are safer.

YMMV

I've been running a Dunlop Winter Sport ROF for about a year now. I like the 175/60/16 size the best when I can get them because it doesn't have any of the stand up feel some of the wider tires have.

Tire Rack has the tire but not the size I like. I like the run flat tires too because that is an add level of security when on a road trip.

Victory will tell you no warranty for you.

Yes there are lots of us running a CT on our bikes. Running a CT does not afect your warranty of your insurance.
If something does happen they would half to prove that the CT was at fault.
If you over load the bike and the tire rubs the paint off its your fault not theres. If you have a flat and crash its your fault not the tire or factory. If you miss aline the rear tire and rip the belt its your fault not thers.
You'll probly half to find a aftermarket shop to mount it I dought your dealer will.
Yes the bike handles fine its all up to you the rider. Yes you might not take corners or curves like a MC tire.

Save this law http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnuso...s_Warranty_Act
