 Maybe putting aside the imagined negative preconceptions and reading the posts by users would open eyes to the REAL benefits of the car tire.  ;)
preconception - an opinion formed beforehand without adequate evidence  We all do it at times.
 More traction in all conditions and attitudes. More traction can be safer. Lower cost and higher mileage added benefits. These are attributes from personal experience using 4 CT's and 35k mi. Most who have tried it are not going back to a rear MT.
 No one tire, motorcycle or ingested/inhaled chemical is everyones favorite.
 No one is saying it works for everyone every bike or asking someone to use it. Reporting on our mods is what we do.


Experimenting with something usefull would make sense but to take a precision handling machine and ruin it for more tread life makes no sense .

 No harm, no foul.
 Just mostly wanted to remind that there is much info on the web about hundreds of motorcyclists experience  using the rear CT.

 Yes, running rear CT for three years. I have read on the Dark Side forum that another C10 rider has been using the rear CT.
 In the library archives Concourier Summer 2008 has the article on the C10 CT mod.
