I think the history of a lack of credible problems from running a CT speaks for itself.
This is a typical logical fallacy called "argument from ignorance". Sorry ;)

I'm not against the use of CTs, but the above video clearly show CTs limitations.
I ride only roads where an excellent grip in all situations is the most important factor. So CTs are out of question.

Also I would hate the fact that when I stop the CT would level with the road and push my 800lbs bike out of balance as showed at 7:55 in the video.

Actually, that vid clearly shows THAT tire's limitations on THAT bike with THAT rider. The unknowns include, but are not limited to, tire make/model/size/air pressure, bike's weight, rider's familiarity/comfort level with a CT. IIRC, at the near end of the vid, the rider stated he was comfortable with the CT's handling within 10 minutes of riding it.

I’m surprised you found a Honda rep that would tell you that a “CT are no problem.” Every Honda rep I’ve encountered at the district level and above say “no” to CT’s and towing trailers.
?
For company liability reasons I don't know how they could say anything else. (Regardless of how they felt or believed personally).

CT is great on a Goldwing. Don't think it is really suited to an Adventure Bike.That bike has a much higher centre of gravity than a Goldwing, the effects of a wider tyre would be felt more. He took a 50/50 knobby tyre off that bike which would not go really well on a Goldwing. A CT is not for a crutch rockets or dirt bikes. It's not for everyone or every bike, but if you do a lot of highway riding, it is so smooth and trouble free.
