sensible road riding will do the trick pretty quickly.

Alas, not something we always see with the sportsbike riders though  :gnasher:

I know my limits.


I can't even think of any road where I would have the chance to do something like that. At least not at legal speeds....

Don't need too higher a speed for them to touch.  There's still quite a bit of tyre unused on the edge.  ;)

Lay it down a bit more.  :D

Nice!!!! Im going to take it for a another hundred kms ride tonight.

I noticed the new rubber lets the bike tip in much quicker than before. I am wondering if thats because they haven't been flattened off by "normal" riding yet?

Could been low pressure on the old tyres, maybe.....


Now go clean those rims.

How do you keep yours clean? I find that after every decent ride the chain lube makes them filthy.

EDIT: Running 32psi front, 35psi rear at the moment. Old rubber was 32psi all round.

My man berries are not large enough on the street.

However I will probably start taking it to track days shortly.
