This is a superb tire. I am most impressed with the traction in wet/slippery conditions. Living in South Florida, I have a great need for a tire that performs well in wet conditions and this tire by General really is phenomenal. Its like the pavement is still dry. Launch and stopping are great. My only complaint about these tires is that the road noise is a little loud, louder than the OEM Bridgestones. I've been riding on the tires for about 1500 miles. I'll try to give another update with more mileage on the tires.
