So my question to you. Take it easy on the road tyres and just concentrate on being smooth etc. Or take the plunge and buy a set of wets on the day?
Any advice/ comments very much appreciated.
If your riding is mainly road and novice track days, then I'd say go out on road tyres and take it very steady and build confidence in them. If its raining so hard that there's standing water etc, then think about wets, but unless you're goign to be doing lots of trackdays, you should be fine on road tyres (otherwise how much use would you get out of wets?).
Wets are great though and can inspire huge amounts of confidence, its just about how relevant they are to your types of riding.
