Think about it for a minute, fellas. Think of the liability aspect. Do you actually think tire manufactureers are sending motorcycle tires out of the plant covered in a slippery substance? Really?
Why do people crash on new tires? They're cold. They're overinflated from the shop (maybe). They are covered in tire lube from a sloppy tirechanging job at the shop (maybe). They have a different profile from the tire the rider is used to. Etc. Slippery from the factory? Not so much.
