I'm not a fan of riding in the heat, either.  If I am not comfortable, I am distracted, and that is not safe.  But at least I find the X cooler than my VFR, especially in traffic on a hot day.

You guys are speaking to me about the heat. Last week I had a 300+ mile ride with an actual temp of 93, heat index of 104 and I was in a Darien jacket and Klim Badlands pants  :087: To damn hot

About the tires though, I have zero experience with them on a CB, but on my Kawasaki Versys 1000LT I get 8k+ off them. I would have expected that on a CB, 100lbs lighter, half the horsepower, you would get 10k+.

I just ordered a set of Mitas EO7 Dakar's to replace the rapidly wearing Shinko 805/804 combo that I'm running right now. Once I actually finish off these Shinko's, I'll write up a review.
Just damn happy to be here...

26000 km with my set of Road 5. From far the best road tyres I have worn.
Now running Roadtec 01... with regrets.
