Not a fun experience 7 Months ago  
So yesterday I got my new tires put on and today I went to Bryson city to see about getting a room for September. Well on my way there I hit rain,and it was at this point I realized rain and new rubber sucks.

new tire take some adjusting to get used to.
It is also a good idea to make sure the tires were not put on backwards. If your not sure how, on the side of the tire there should be a arrow showing the tire rotation.

Nope. I put about 30 miles on them coming from the dealer home and maybe 15 to 20 today before I hit rain.

Yeah and I took 19 across soco. Almost list it once but the handling of the HD saved my ass that different rake angle is so much more stable.

My first rain on a bike scared the crap out of me (I was overdriving it due to lack of experiance.)

Glad it worked out for you.
