depends on how hard you work em, less than a lap on a track and they are good to go, depending on how hard you ride on street and what kind of roads you ride I would work em in some twisties for a little while.

just be easy on them in the first few turns to let em build up heat and dont give em too much brake. Then work em with more lean and keep a constant throttle.

I slapped mine on and went out in 37 temperatures right after... Drewpy may remember seeing it as he was right behind me (WV trip)... I got a little sideways turning right from a stop sign about 30 seconds after leaving my house... Then I could feel it give way a little in the first left I took at speed probably a half hour later... It didn't really slip the 2nd time, but I could feel it start to go. I think the second time was more to do with it being a greasy new tire that hadn't been scrubbed in... At that point my contact patch was probably 90% untouched tire...
