[QUOTE=SGT USMC 0311;3041004]My favorite chicken strips are from Wingstop....they also have the best french fries.

im gunna have to disagree with you on that one. churches definitely has the best, im not sure about the fries though. as far as the tires go, if you have huge strips on the side then you really dont corner very hard but if you have slight ones that doesnt mean you dont ride hard its just a matter of body position

I'm actually not very good at cornering on the street I probably corner on high 2nd gear. So i slow down that much, the new tires made a difference on the highway but made the bike a little unstable on the street i think I just need to brake em in real good. Not too worried about the chicken strip I heard the term n i was lost. But safe ridding is more important to me

Anyone can scrub off chicken strips in a parking lot at 10 mph if they have half a brain.

Chicken strips or lack thereof prove nothing

They were riding in circles, one side, at least ten minutes, then other side.
and trying to wheelie too...

I do that every time I get a new set of tires (minus the wheelies). I much rather go to a parking lot and scrub the tires real quick so they're ready for the road.

Why? There is no need to be obsessed with removing chicken strips. Taking corners at a conservative speed on the street does not make you a wimp by any means.

If you take your bike to the track, chances are, you will have a separate set of track tires anyway.

to get rid of chicken strips properly check out our sponsor section and look into getting some hours in at the track there is nothing in the world like it. your chicken strips will be gone

I agree about not being obsessed. I also disagree about seperate tires for the track. i did so many track days, a bunch of em on sport touring tires

whatever the case is we need to get him to the track to eliminate the said chicken strips.

I don't know about other brands but there's no oil, or wax, or goo, or any other mythical substance on new Bridgestones.

1. New tires feel and turn differently than worn tires and if you're not an experienced rider I guess that could get you in trouble. Per Bridgestone: "Directly after new tires are mounted, sudden acceleration, maximum braking and hard cornering must be avoided. This will allow the rider to adjust to the “Feel” and handling characteristics of the new tire.

2. I avoid hard breaking and acceleration to make sure the tires are seated first.

3. After the first two ramps on my way to work they're "scuffed-in" to the edge and that's on a BT-016 Front and BT-023 Rear.

but these were not new tires,
he was in full leathers, working on "body position" he said,
EX; not him


and he didn't wheelie, but was trying or sump n,

he was telling me stories of "Fulsher" and racer road,
his race buddies and bike specialist, zip ties on the fork,
made me think of this
EX


I told him of Wednesday night PP1, go ride the city "route"

and that made me think of this stuff, hahaha




but concerning chicken strips on new tires, my thought is...
"...at least you have NEW tires!"

my Q2s have plenty of room, on the front, to lean in on, but I'm too chicken!

If at this point if you don't know what a chicken strip is, I highly advise that you DO NOT go on the street and lean as much as you can and try to remove them.

With that being said, I removed chicken strips the first few laps around the track on the BT016.

The Dunlop Q2 I did a whole track day and leaned even more and I still have 1/4" strip.
