while we don't get as much rain as dave gets, it does rain a little here, and I agree with dave, I've lost traction once or three times on a mc tire in the wet, not yet on a ct haven't tried it in snow, waiting on the weather.When riding in the rain is when a Car tire is BEST. It does NOT slide out as easy as a motorcycle tire, at least on the 650. With a MT I could spin the back out but NEVER happens with a CT.
SNOW is even better. Does Cyprus get any snow???
