New Tires are slippery....AAARRRRGGG!

Threw some new tires on my Triumph Scrambler before heading North on a short trip. Didn't even make it out of Honda's parking lot before the bike slid out from under me as though I was on a sheet of ice. Combination of new tires covered with silicone, a newly seal coated parking lot, and an 865cc motor. Fortunately I was going slow but seeing my beautiful Scrambler sliding on the pavement nearly broke my heart. Not to mention the friction burn I received on my right knee from me sliding with it. Went straight to the store and bought a new pair of jeans. What happens on this forum stays on this forum right? Wife never needs to know (she'll just worry). :)

And of course....after the fact everybody wanted to give me advice on being careful with new tires.
