Default Car tire handling

Handling is a subjective question like the dreaded oil subject ,lol, I guess I would say excellent ! A little tricky at first at parking lot speed and uneven pavement but second nature on avoiding things will take over after some miles. Like most ct's the braking, rain traction, smoother ride etc. is all superior to any mt. Curves you say, well I have battle scares on the pipes and boards to explain that one. I have had to repair ct's and you just plug them and proceed to wear them out. Like all of us your experience will be the answer to your questions, just get out and ride, test the tire in different ways like stopping in gravel to be familiar with how it reacts in ways you are not used to, and soon you will be used to it ! Enjoy the adventure.

Well, one thing I have noticed right off is how much easier it is to roll the bike out the garage. I will have to go do some parking lot practicing then. I just like to be ahead on things so I don't get as nasty a surprise. So far, what little I have gotten to ride ( Weather), I like it.
