Doc, would that not leave us with the choice of the 2 OE tyres from Honda. I'm not really complaining about the Pirellis I have but I have a set of Roadsmarts that will be going on at the end of next month for my trip to Spain in April.
The only time I have heard anyone mention non OE tyres was a BMW dealer last year when they were trying to knock money off my GS that had PR3s fitted
Personally I doubt if I will put dual purpose tyres back on unless I can get them at a good price and they have been recommended by others on here that have tried them on the CT as I won't (intentionally
)be taking my bike off road.
I know insurance companies can be funny about some things but as long as the tyre is at least the same load and speed rating it should not be classed as a performance enhancing accessory so shouldn't be a problem.
Hopefully some others will have a bit of experience if there are any disadvantages to using non OE tyres that they can share with us
