Just ordered it, 205 65 16. 88 bucks shipped. Looks like the edges were a little rounder than some. Anyone try this one?

Really like the preliminary feel of the tire! Slow parking lot back and forth I felt no difference. Very Smoooooth on the straight roads. First sweeping curve I thought I would have a little more countersteering like my other ct's in the past, but nope, not one noticeable difference. Other tires, Altimax and Hyroedge, there would be a spot where I felt I had to mildly overcome on the curves, no matter what tire pressure. Not this one. Have no idea what pressure installer put as I was in a hurry to leave. Will check tomorrow. rpms did drop a little, where 5th at 60 feels like it did at 55 with mt.
In my case I am glad I made the switch with so many miles I ride. Only need to lube it at about 15k.

Just an update on this tire: Out of the 3 I have tried, Altimax, Hyroedge and this one, This is by far the best. No counter steering on curves! It feels like my motorcycle tire except smoother. Love it. Thought I would share the good news.

Wonderful! Still handles great! Looks new. i put about 10k on it since tire installed. Will have splines greased in about 5k more. Let me know how yours is. I liked the higher psi, I think about 48 for me.

About 2.5K on mine.  Very happy and also my best so far-
Have had BFG gForce sport; Michelin HE and GYTT.  This one rides and runs the best.
