This thread could and has gone on and on. I have used both a CT and a MT, currently I have a MT on my 2013. Other than not needing to replace it for over a year, I really didn't notice much difference. There was something different when I first had the CT on and I was looking for differences.
When the current MT wears out I will likely go back to the Yokohama avid endeavor run flat. I did run the pressure high to keep the TPMS system happy. I was able to drag the highway pegs in the corners. I don't honestly know if this affects my mpg or my odometer reading and I don't really care. When the bike needs gas I get some. Miles only matters at resale, this is the last bike I will have, I don't care what my family gets for it when they sell it. None of them are interested in riding.
We all have to make the call ourselves whether to use a CT or a MT for most it is an easy decision in either direction. I struggled with it and will likely look at it again every time I need to replace the tire.
John, thanks for allowing the discussion to continue and weeding out the post that don't help the discussion.
