I'm not a good enough rider to quantify "why" I do not like the E3 I currently have on the front of my bike. All I can say is the feedback I get from the tire does not inspire confidence when I try a spirited ride on a twisty road. Could definitely be a symptom of the Michelin CT on the rear, too. The bike just does not want to lean (and stay leaned) through corners. "Nervous and active counter-steering" is the best way I can think to describe bombing a corner. On the Bridgestones the dealer installed when I bought the bike used it was just, well, fun to hit the twisties.
