Kenda Kruz update
I've got about 500mi on them now and I an happy to say, they work great.
The ride and the handling of my bike, improved so much, that is hard to put into words. I don't know if they are as good as the higher priced brands, but they are more than a person needs to feel safe.
I did a little test Yesterday, with cold tires and wet roads. I ran along about 25-30mph on wet Black top and I kept feeding the front brake until I got the tire to lose traction, I also did this with the rear, which is easy to lock up, with not much feel at all. Then later in the day, I repeated the test on the same stretch of road only dry and sunny. To my surprise, I couldn't feel much difference in amount of pressure I applied to get the tires to slip. I know this isn't precise scientific way of testing. I didn't want to tap into my brake line and install a gauge to measure to actual pressure. But when you have to feed enough brake to damn near fully compress the forks to get the tire to slide, I think the Kenda Kruz tires are good enough for me.
