How's the grip? Are you happy with the performance?
Good question bear. I'm a pretty conservative rider, but today I slipped turning left at an intersection. Not once, but twice. I think I slipped on the transition to the side. I was riding a little aggressive cause the damn car in front was just going way too slow.
Although that same intersection is where I've always slipped when my oem tire was starting to wear out.
Other than that no problems with grip..but like I said, I'm pretty conservative on my commutes.
It still looks good for a little while. Not bad for 7000 miles in your hot conditions... What's all that light gray dust/residue? Looks like some accumulates on both sides just beside the center, which probably makes it more prone to slipping when accelerating on a slight lean while turning.
