So Ive been riding my 6r for a few good weeks, got about 700 miles in, takin all the back roads i know around here, and i still have chicken strips. i've been riding for a few years on and off, and never was concerned with them on other bikes, but its not an experience thing. i only have 1/2" or so on either side of my tire. i just cant seem to get rid of them no matter how or where i ride. basically, im wondering if thats common since i dont hit the track yet, or if my riding's slacking that much. how wide are yours?
