Missing my C/T

Post  johnnie1 on Sun Oct 21, 2012 7:06 pm

Found a good buy on a set of M/T for my Goldwing so I thought I would try them again had been running a General C\T and liked it, anyway put the M/T back on and first little trip about 200 miles and I am ready to go back to the C/T. Will run these until the rear is done and then switch back which will be in about 8,000 miles if I can wait that long. The C/T just seems so much more stabil to me and feels better to me in the curves.

I took my rear MT off at about 800 miles and sold it on ebay.
I just couldn't suffer through having to wear out the Bridgestone before I could put on the smoother riding Michelin PA3. lafer

Heheh, I still have a Pirelli with only about 4k on it; just as an emergency spare. Tight as things are now, I may toss it back on and abuse it for a couple more.

I had a mc tire mounted on a rim last summer and thought, what the hell, Ill burn it up for about a month, After running it for about a week, I was up the road from my house and was heading home and I decided to jump on it and I hit 2nd gear and all hell broke loose, I forgot what tire I had on and the tire broke loose and the ass end started to come around on me. I put the ct back on the first time I got a chance.
