Been there done that, had no problems at all. car tyre feels a little "heavy" at times, can still drag the pegs around the corners, and get twice the mileage from a CT.
I think a lot of it is personal choice and how you ride. I always put on a CT when going on holiday towing the trailer, mainly because 240 tyres are a bit harder to find in the middle of Australia, and the CT will get me right around. The bike has done 85000km and I will have used a CT for at least 50000km of that.
Tyre I use is a Toyo 225x50, although I will try a 55 profile next time. A 245 wide will fit but is too tight, 225 is better.
Put a CT on and try it for yourself, there is no dramas with it. The only thing to be aware of is when you cross a verge or rut in the road as the tyre is so wide and flat you will feel the tyre push you to one side, no biggie at all.
Having said all that I have just run out a Bridgestone Excedra, good tyre, better ride than the Avon cobra, cheaper but with less mileage
Personal choice and no harm done if you don't like it
