After my last mc tire only gave about 7000 miles I decided there has to be something better. I know a couple folks on the dark side and they are very happy there. I did my research (lurking), decided on a tire (Kumho Ecsta SPT) and put it on today. I only have about 50 miles on it but I'm impressed with the smooth ride and the lack of road noise. Extra bonuses I wasn't expecting was better low speed control and reduced stopping distances. I knew there would be some resistance to cornering, but not near as bad as what I expected. Thanks to all who post and give folks like me the encouragement to try it. Now I ask myself "Why did I wait so long?" :biggrin:
