I'm going to be buying a new set of tires for my 2009 C50SE soon, and I'd like to hear anyone's recommendations. Most posts about tires are a few years old now, and with new models of tires out I thought I'd revisit the topic.
In the summer I ride everywhere instead of driving my truck, so that means commuting, running errands, day trips, etc. So I'm looking for a good all-round tire to use rain or shine.
But of special concern is something that can handle grooved pavement in construction zones. There are two seasons in Toronto - winter and construction. SOME part of my daily commute will be getting repaved, and this is going to last until the snow falls again. My C50 had Dunlops on it, and my bike was very skittish riding on grooved pavement - it got pretty scary at times. So I'm hoping that a person of experience can recommend a tire that will give me better control and a smoother ride on grooved pavement, if there is such a thing.
Many thanks for any suggestions.
