I couldn't agree more. Love riding my CTX1300, rain or shine. Great in the canyons, and perfect for cruising. I darksided it when I couldn't find a rear replacement in stock anywhere local. Have over 20k miles on the CT, and less than half the tread gone. For a cruiser/touring unbelievable, and the traction in heavy rain is unbelievable.The CTX is the most grossly underrated motorcycle ever produced.
I'm thinking of doing the same on the C50T since it doesn't need to race through the canyons, but if this Covid-19 thing keeps everyone home, the tires will likely rot before needing to be replaced due to tread wear.
