I had those on my Honda VFR... Outstanding rubber wet or dry!

Thing I have noticed over the years if they are good for wet, dry and heat will eat them up. So it is hard to find the right tire for all conditions. I guess where you live you have to buy the right tire for your driving conditions. I do not ride hardly in wet no more. Not a die hard like I use to be..

I know what you mean but as I live in Oregon, if I only rode when it's dry out, I'd only get to ride about 11 days of the year....

I've noticed that while I really like the handling of my XC on dry pavement, the rear end tends to break loose much easier on wet than my sport tourers did.

I imagine that this is both a function of riding an 800lb touring bike compared to a 450-650lb sport bike as well as a function of the dual compound tires I am used to riding on...

I about fell off my chair reading the mileage that folks get on our stock tires--up to 20,000 miles (REALLY?) I'm used to trading out between 4000 and 7000 miles on my old bikes! And, I'm learning to go a bit easier when coming out of corners on wet pavement with my new ride.

Anyway, no complaints here but I would be 1st in line to give up some tire longevity for better wet surface traction if it meant going to a softer or dual compound tire...
