This is what I go by in my rain riding.

I am not a better rider than the tires.

Sportbikes: Pilot Power Michelin Motorcycle Tire
You don't have to be world champion to get your hands on Michelin® MotoGP tire technology. Pilot® Power tires use a rubber mix that was originally developed for MotoGP racing, and a tread pattern that covers less than 12% of the tire’s surface. The result is a maximum lean angle of 50.6 degrees on dry pavement and 41.9 degrees in the wet, achieved with a stock sportbike. How did we do it? When your test riders are winning on 230-horsepower MotoGP bikes, you learn a few things about performance.
X the DY.
