    Ok, finally found out why those euro guys was talkin about (vee rubber).

    Been only riding when it was dry or semi moist is some spots of the road, never fully drenched. Last nite the roads was fully drenched an a moderate amount of rainfall.

    I was making a normal right turn with my normal throttling. An I start spinning out 1st with slight counter steer, so I figure oh that must of been a cross walk or something. Preceded to 2nd normally, an it went right back to spinning the rear. An didnt think much of that either, figured I jus full throttle it is why its breaking loose. Until my uphill climb where top speed it 50 tucked wit front 14t. Going in a straight like the rear starts to get squirmy immediately place my left hand back on the handlebar. Thinkin to myself can you get hydro plane on jus the rear!!!!! Proceded cautiously wit both hands on the bar, an it happen again 2 more times. An it was definetly the rear breaking loose an starting to spin, thus why the euros described its like riding on ice. I was at steady wot, around 8k 4th gear. Not popping clutch or throttling on an off. Steady an the rear was breaking loose. I've lost all trust in theses tires.

    Honda u listening! These tires are unsafe in the wet! A lawsuit waiting to happen.

    I drove through a small puddle and went to turn a block later and my tires were still slick.

    I've said this from day 1, these tires are less than adequate for the rain. In fact, I'm going to have my boppers put on right now. I'll let you guys know after the weekend if they are any better

    I've been running around on dunlop tt92s for a couple weeks now, 120/80/12 front and rear. Not sure how they'd fair up in the wet stuff, but goddamn do they grip on the dry stuff.

    Also have around .5" more clearance due to the larger sidewall.

    I've had the TT92's before and they are slippery in the rain so becareful with them but they definitely the best tire I have ever run on dry roads.
