I have put about 400 miles on the new Kumho RF this week but so far the wife has not been on the cycle since we installed the new tire.
We had a chance to ride for about 1 hour on Sat, evening. She immediately noticed that it was more quiet. This afternoon,out of the blue,she said: I did not feel as much vibration and it did not bother her back like the MC tire did. I have 34 lbs pressure in it now and will try that this week although I have the feeling that I'll be dropping it back to 32 or maybe 33. Overall very pleased with it!:lol:

Haven't had Mz. Vickie on the back yet, just got the tire Saturday. I like the suspension at max all the time, and the way it feels at that setting solo can only improve with her on it. Since we don't have intercoms yet, I can only surmise there will be an improvement in the communication system.

That's good news to hear. Just gives me even more reason to get a CT when my current tire wears out.
