I'll be heading into North FL, and rain is forcast. Question to you seasoned CT users, being a relative newbie to the CT, is there anything I should be aware of on wet roads concerning a different feel, handling, whatever?
That does sound logical as does "a CT can't work on a motorcycle". :shrug:
I've not had the opportunity to give mine a good workout in the rain; I'm probably going to get my first chance in the next 24 hours.Aside from stuff on the road and/or ice, you have to try hard to spin it. Very confidance inspiring in the wet.
Good enough Rocky, I'm sure you and everyone else that responded wouldn't jeopardize their safety if that wasn't fact.Walter.That would be a misconception.A CT has more sipes/grooves in it than a MT does,and can eject water at a faster rate.
The wings weight and then add the rider/passenger over that tire will keep it planted where it belongs..Now if you drive fast through a "flooded" street/road-Then good luck..lol
No one should ride the same speed in the wet! Slow down when it's wet out!
Very true, front tire splits that water and away it goes. That front tire will also stand up nails and screws so they will go into the rear tire with the sharp end first LOL ...Rear tires on anything rarely hydroplane - the front tires break the surface tension.
