I would have been in that group too

Yours reminds me of watching WSBK a few years back where Frankie Chilli started losing time and it later showed his Dunlop rear had begun delaminating!! Caused by overheating!!
Big chunks were missing, similar to yours but bigger and not as regular a pattern!!!!!!!!
Slow down man

Seriously even on flat out runs on the German autobahns I've never seen anything like that and we all used to be on DOT race takeoffs!!!

That's just not true. I've ridden many times on 3090 and more with the rear at 42 psi cold. I think the motorcycle manufacturers know a tiny bit about what they're doing

Bridgestone's recommendation

Quote:
Tire Inflation

Always keep the motorcycle manufacturer's recommended air pressure in both tires. This is an important requirement for tire safety and mileage. Your motorcycle owner’s manual will tell you the recommended cold inflation pressure. On some motorcycles, the recommended front and rear tire pressures will be different. The pressures stamped on the sidewall of the tire are only for maximum loads. On some occasions, these pressures will also be the manufacturers recommended settings as well.

Riding on tires with too little air pressure is dangerous. The tires will build excessive heat. This can cause a sudden tire failure that could lead to serious personal injury or death.

Underinflation may also:

Damage the tire leading to tire failure
Adversely affect vehicle cornering
Reduce tire life
Increase fuel consumption
Fatigue cracking

Riding on tires with too much air can be dangerous. The tires are more likely to be cut, punctured, or broken by sudden impact. Serious personal injury or death could result. Do not exceed the pressure indicated on the tire sidewall. Consult your owner’s manual for the recommended inflation and other tire none.

Slowback 05 - There are definitely skills shown. And the you seem to be a good guy based on your posts in this thread. But, you need to take those skill and apply it somewhere other than public roads (especially a highly travelled 610).

I had a friend when I lived in College Station that was highly skilled at stunting and at speed. I watched him wipe out in front of me one night on 3090, went with him to the hospital, saw him recover well, and continue to ride with amazing skill.

He ended up hitting the back of a truck.


I ride over the speed limit often and at above suggested speeds, but I try to do that in areas that minimize (although admitedly, not totally eliminate) the risks to others.

What you are doing out on those public roads has a high probability of killing you and that's bad. What's worse to me is the possibility of my wife heading back from a long trip with my three kids in the car and you either spook her and cause an accident, or wipe yourself out and in the process take them out. Looking at the tires you were riding on and the condition they were in due to your lack of knowledge of proper tire pressure (I'm not saying I would have known any better either) backs up that possibility even more.

I'm not even going to comment on the perspective you are giving others on the road about what squids we all are.

Glad you made it back safely on those tires. I hope you'll consider hitting the track instead. Or at least lesser travelled roads.

Not trying to be Debbie Downer, start a fight, or preach. I just hope you'll consider a change of venue for those runs.

More from Bridgestone

Bevo,

I think that youíll really like the BT016. For aggressive riding, you could drop the pressure down to around 33psi front and rear to let them work more. You should be sure to re-inflate to the placard pressures for everyday riding/commuting.



Thanks,

I wasn't recommending a tire so much but a suggested pressure
