Thanks guys and I'm aware of your points, VJ I think you answered my question, they are marathons.
I ride back and forth to work every day, same routes, both Vegas and Tour bike. Enter corners and stops the same way day in and out.
Took the New (to me) high ball one day this week and both stopping and downshifting as I normally do with my other bikes (yes most stopping power on front brake) locked up the rear wheel. Surprised me each time so I knew something was very different. I have to think it's a combo of lighter bike and hard rubber, not worried just need to ride it a little different.
Thanks for the info
