Do all CT have the same low speed characteristics you mentioned above? I still learning the bike ...
I have not heard of one that doesn't. But once you become use to it y'll be like me. I will never go back to a MT. I believe I might even get rid of the wing if I could not use a CT. There has been a few that have tried it and could not get use to it. I am guessing maybe 2-3% go back to a MT.

Just a thought, could the tire edges be slightly shaped or more rounded to help in the corners? Since most of the time we ride straight the tire should wear more in the middle? Would that help?
The tire should wear evenly across the tread, unless you do lots of twisties. Wearing out in the center means too much pressure. Every 200-500 miles or so check tread depth across tread in several places and adjust pressure accordingly. Adjust up or down by a couple lbs and recheck in 200-500 miles. YMMV

Agree. I liked my Alpins - several. Everything I like about them, I liked a little more on the Yokohama. For me, the Yoko does not last as many miles as the Alpins did, but it is less expensive too. So miles per $ is about the same. YMMV.
Get a small bucket of Murphy' tire lube. A little dab will do 'ya and make mounting easier. Go ahead and add that little bucket to your will. I think a small bucket will last 3-4 generations.
