I know you didn't mean it that way, but "it won't turn" of your words sometimes perpetuates the idea that there is a big difference. It's like when one poster said to me: "How do you manage to go around turns?" To which I replied: "No problem. I just stop at the beginning of the turn and push the bike around until the road is straight again. Then get back on."
Now I (we?) know you didn't mean that literally, and did also mention the "extra input." But I find that so many of the unwashed actually do, at least in the back of their minds, think they are going to have "problems" by using a car tire. I prefer to explain it that, yes, it is a little different, but not only is a new mt "different" from the worn one you just took off, every turn you make on the highway is a little different. It becomes so that just as you adjust to the different road conditions, you also adjust to the different feel of the ct.
Like you, I like having a tire that not only can I run with 28# in it, and is sooo much safer being a run flat, but is going to last me for probably 25,000 miles--likely twice what a mt would last. Even forget that the total cost was somewhere less than the mt, especially if you bought the OEM replacement from the dealer (the only place to get one) at like $350., tire only.
Did you get a Driveguard?
How will I know when I get there if I don't know where I'm going?
