    Bridgestone cb tire very soft

    As I mentioned before, had some good biking last 2 days, but now back home and watching my rear tire got a surprise.

    It is making little gum balls,not that this is bad but, I had the same effect on a michelin Power race tire (a known very soft tyre) and the michelin only lasted 2000 km...

    never would have imagined Honda would mount such a SOFT tire! (it´s my first brigestone).

    That's never going to happen to my tyres:

    1. It's not hot enough here!
    2. I am much too "safe" and "slow" in my riding style.

    Back on two wheels!

    Hmm, and that is with a dual compound tyre too! I doubt it gets warm enough for me to really do that to mine too

    I think they're the same tyres used on the new 08 Blade so bound to be quite soft for grip-but they probably won't do that in this country [well maybe only on the edges].
