It looks like the Federal tire 595 rs-rr will be going on my bike soon. Any one who has run that tire how does it hold up. Yes I realize it is a very soft tire so not expecting 15000 miles. Hoping to get between 6000 -8000miles.

That's around the mileage you'll get out of that tire. If you want an in between tire use the Bfgoodrich Comp-2 A/S. That'll get you around 15-20k.

Hi new guy here. I love the look of a dark side warrior.

Any problem with hydroplaneing?

Been on the dark side for 3 years. Ridden in torrential downpours and standing water on roads. Never hydroplaned.
