I have recently started driving a motorcycle to work (60 km/day). I have a Honda XR125L. Today I had an accident. I was driving at 10-20 mph and wanted to break for cars that were standing still. I had about 15 meters to break so it was not an emergency maneuver. As soon as I used the front break my front wheel slipped out and I hit a parked car head first. I am perfectly fine given the low speed but I am a bit shaken up. However, I want to equip my bike as good as I can to prevent this from happening again.
I have been told that my tyres are not decent for daily driving, let alone wet conditions.
The tyres on the bike at this moment are Pirelli MT60 with a bit of wear though since this bike is a second hand one. Since I am not going to drive off-road any time soon I was thinking about buying tyres that are suited for road use and have better performance in wet conditions. However, I am finding it hard to find good tyres that are suited for wet conditions. So my question is, is there such a thing as rain tyres for motorcycles? I have tyres for my car that are built for rain (Uniroyal RainExpert) specifically. I was hoping to find something similar for a motorcycle.
