and you get that from low tyre pressure right?

wtf? I searched around but couldn't find anything...what happened to the Fazer?


This is old...about 10,000 miles ago old (Pilot Power 2CTs). Also went through a set of Power Pures. My current tires (Q2s) have about 400 miles...right side is slightly more strip on the right side, left side is a bit less. Just needs more miles to get 'em down (edit: and I should mention street-only)

I love that bike but it's a shame to see a bike with full ohlins have chicken strips. And it's the fastest color to boot...

I don't see why it matters in the slightest. No-one on this board can ride an R1 to the limit (or an R6 for that matter), and as many have stated before, the absence or presence of chicken strips doesn't prove a riders skill, worth etc. I mean really - who the heck cares?!! Let the man enjoy his bike!

Wait a second.. I definitely don't mean any disrespect to Ian I think he is a great guy and has helped me with a lot of my mods. I'm just poking fun.
