Well we went out and did about 800 miles up into the Ozarks this weekend with the Kumho. Took in all kinds of roads,wet,gravel,tar,concrete and some not so good (broken crumbling,buckling in downtown Eureka Springs). The broken, crumbling roads I could feel a little wandering around and this was due to the SLOW speeds due to stop and go traffic. The rest of the roads were not any problems and no slippage or anything unusual. The SO commented how much better the bike rode with the CT. Tire never slipped in the rain and I was HOTFOOTING up there on the way. Think we have a winner here with this one but I am not telling you guys nothing you don't already know.
