New tires, are they really that slippery?
I am a new rider, and got my bike about 2 months a go. I just ordered my tires (both front and rear). I've been delaying changing my tires, because I heard scary stuff about how slippery new tires are. Although, I know that dull tires are not save as well. I finally pulled the triggered, ordered both tires online with my mechanic and scheduled the service this Thursday. The weather channel said it won't be raining that day. So the road won't be that slippery.
My question is, without rain or sand, just regular road, do I have to worry so much about these new tires? I don't want to be nervous about the tires on top of everything else. As I mentioned, I'm a new rider, and I just started commuting in the city with the bike, and I do ride everyday. Worrying about other motorists, hills, potholes, traffic, intersections is already stressful enough ;)
Any advice/tips/comments would be much appreciated!
