Hey guys... hey, hey guys... let's talk about tires again.
So- the tires I currently have on are the stock ones, including the deathwing, and after about 10,000 miles they've started doing a pretty decent impression of racing slicks. I know most of you guys don't appreciate the stock front, but it's really not bad if you know how to use it. There's just a few simple things you have to remember: A. Don't brake while turning, B. Don't brake while going in a straight line, C. Don't brake while going downhill, and D. Don't turn the bars without consulting the tire first- and then just to be safe don't turn the bars anyway. I've followed these simple rules and I've only crashed about forty twelve times.
But back to the topic at hand- new ones. I want to get two separate sets so my question is Who has information on the longevity of the street tires that fit this bike? I know most of you don't have street tires, and a lot ride it little enough where dryrot becomes an issue before wear limits, but I figure someone has to have ridden on some for a while. I really don't want tires that would need to be replace in 5000 miles or less.
