CT broken-in

Post  johnnie1 on Thu May 10, 2012 8:54 pm

I now have 4,300 miles on my CT and just finished a 1,700mi trip. Great performance from the CT and still looks new. Very happy with it. The wife says it rides better so that is good. I can not tell any real difference in it over the MT as far as handling goes sticks great in the curves and stops better the only place it feels different is when doing about 15 or 20 mph it does not feel as agile other than that it works great. Thanks again to all of you that offered me information when I was thinking about making the change.

And that's all in your head. Follow me thru the cones and I'll show you what that tire can do. It's really just a matter of
neural learning and memory - Once you work that bike in the slow speed maneuvers, you'll swear it's far better that the
MT you had before.

Agree with you Johnny. If I pay strict attention on the Concours, I can still feel the slightly less stability in parking lot speed turning, but not so on the Kaw 900C.

Don't think it's in my head I think its in the difference in the tires glad you find it better in slow speed maneuvers but I don't. Its not bad understand just different.

Exactly. That's more of what I meant anyway. Sort of like riding a different bike; you get used to it soon enough.

I was in the rain with it the other day and it felt really solid, if I get good miles out of it I will be keeping it for sure. I was only getting 7,500 to 8,500 out of the MT which sucks at the price of them. Anyway have a great day and ride safe.
