I've got 8k on my stock 207s. Same situation as you, they're getting flattened from all my cold-weather highway riding of late. The bike flops over in an interesting way in some corners, now, but I'm going to stay on these until spring, then I'll buy something stickier.quote:
When is it time for new tires? The tires that I have on my bike have about 7500 miles on them (as does the bike). They are starting to flatten themselves in the center pretty good? Will this flat top affect the the cornering when riding hard if it gets worse?
What ever happened to Dan? He just disappeared in January and hasn't been around since.[?]Originally posted by iowazx6r
Road conditions have MUCH to do with tire wear. It's called friction. =) The more porous the cement the more friction, the more friction the more heat, the more heat the more tire wear. So it causes wear in 2 different manners. Don't believe me? Spin a tire on some sand paper for a while. Then spin a 2nd tire on a baby's bottom. Which has more wear? =)
I'm such a jerk when I explain things.
Dan...comfortable enough with his manhood to ride a 600.
