Welcome to the dark side. It's a great place to be! I have 1500 miles on my Altimax and will never go back.

I am with you on that one. I ride around over 20 thousand a year so the savings for me is a lot.

Nice! What do you ride?

I'm about to go darkside on my 2000 Road Star 1600. I'm going with a Falken 195 55 16. $99 and I'll likely get 20k miles out of it!

Yes I ride a 1300 Deluxe. I am not for sure about the 950. If your stock tire is a 170 I would say that it would fit because the 170 is 7 inches wide and the 205 car tire is [email protected] inches wide. Hope this help you out.

It goes around the corners just fine. Go to you tube and look at the darkside clips there are a bunch of them.
