True, if you're running stock tires that may be your issue. They seem to be quite hard and made for touring, rather than any kind of performance.
And as we all know, the more durable the tire is the more silica compound it's got, so naturally it's more slippery than tires with more carbon black.
I don't ride that hard and I do pay extra attention to road conditions so I don't mind the stock tires, but it has to be said they don't get that sticky even after a day in the sun.
And if the tarmac you're on is really smooth and 'polished' in this summer time, you might as well be on ice. That's one thing that stuck with me from my scooter days (don't ask why).
