Compared to mich - yoko - driveguard kumho sucks lol !! What till ya try others . Pirelli new one supposed to be better than most . Welcome back to the ds !
I know what you mean. And I absolutely love my Yokohama Envigor, but the only thing I got to compare it to is a MT which I loved the feel of as well. >That's funny how we all have different perceptions of the same tires.... I want to get rid of my Yokohama and go back to the Kumho but I can't find the Kumho size anymore.
Yep, there are several benefits, but if it were not for the Run Flat feature, I would not bother with a CT.Myself, I don't use a CT for more mileage. I use one for the Run-Flat feature ="safety". The increased traction under all conditions. The smoother ride, especially for her. The added safety of not having a tire that is overloaded when riding 2-up, like the stock motorcycle tire many times is.
The extra service miles is nice but not a priority.
As for performance in the mountains. I have experienced far superior traction and handling with the CT, especially riding solo when I tend to push much harder through the twisties!
