    Yeah, my garden is dodgy and very uneven... I have to push my bike up a tiny hill each day. Unless he meant my chicken strips, I'll get a better picture today.

    Idk why my left chicken strip is a lot bigger than the right... :( The wear on the sides of the tyre also seems a bit weird, or are those waves normal?

    The tyres are awesome though, wet or dry they stick well! :cool:

    Yeah, the bike is filthy... that's the con of having silver wheels and a silver swingarm. :( But I went after work yesterday on some of my favourite routes I use to ride on my KTM, most of the stones are now gone. Fewer pot holes and new tarmac :D

    Because most roads arc away from the centre line. Riding along a straight road in the UK you are actually slightly leaning right when you measure your angle vs the road.

    Never noticed it lol :eek: :p

    :D
    But I do prefer right bends compared to the left. I just can't go through a left bend smoothly... :(

    I still don't have any on the back, 5mm or so on the front but that's me trail braking more than I ever have.

    Can't really see mine which probably means the entire tyre is still a chicken strip
