Really? Their lawyers would have a hissy-fit if they endorsed CTs on a motorcycle. As has been said numerous times in many places, there is not a tire manufacturer (who owns them?) that would put the R&D into this question to verify a CTs superiority on a touring bike. Money speaks, and there's no money in it for any concerned party.

I continue to search for even a single report of a motorcycle accident where the CT is blamed for the mishap. I am able, however, to find a myriad of stories of mishaps attributed to MT failure and resulting collisions/deaths. Anecdotal evidence causes
greater concern over the use of a MT on the rear of a heavy tourer than for the use of a CT.
