Ok my tire has bene on its way out for aobut a 1000 miles now.. so i went for a last rifde cuz it was a last seocnd invite ot a 100+bike ride sunday(put on by the local triumph dealer.....
tire was odne but i htought, hey ill just go ride easy... well it ended up being a ton of crusiers at thought.. but also some dual sports and a GSXR750race prepped , a bunch of Daytona 955i and TT600s... a R1 and a Ducati Testasradda(i htink)

So it was on in the corners.. everyone was haivng fun racing in good spirits... my bald ass tire hit 150mph easy... i actually slipped a tire in a turn.. but it was the front tire thats in good out off all the bikes i hit hte end of the road seocn... following the Duc.. with the 750 right behind me...

4th????? R1..nope...TriumphTiger (dual sport)with the triple 955motor... Ridden by who other hten hte 65 Y/o Dealership owner... with his wife on bike....Good god he was within a minute of me after 35miles of twisties

That guy ROCKS.......hes faster hten hell... i wanna se him with the Daytona under him he shoulda raced as a yuong guy..hell maybe he did, he impressed me like no tomorrow...hes retirment and dying age hauling ASSSSSSSSSS with a bike not made to do it and a passenger to boot. He is now my rolemodel of how to ride.

OH YEAH....and when i got back and parked my bike.. i had about 8" of steel belts showing on the tire.....and it never slipped an inch. not sure if itll even do a burnout now before popping. Thats my squid move of the lifetime... never gonna ride past wear bars agian, rest the week im ridng my 500 to work till i get the 12R mounted on it.

:here: If you had stayed slow you probably would have been fine. The harder you ride the faster your tire leaves.
You got to watch out for the old geezers, we might teach you a thing or two. :whistle: :lol: :twfrox:
