You "could" but I wouldn't. plus it's going to be rain this week.

Not worth the risk.

Def not in the rain, That would be suicidal. Also its very cold this week so if you need to brake kinda hard at all it wont take much for the front tire to give up. So im sure you made your decision already but if you like your bike and rather not crash it, I would just get a ride. Or Call up house if paint to see if he has any take offs they will sell

I've ridden on worse. If you don't push them they'll be fine. I raced a gs500 for a whole season on tires that looked like that back in the day. Yeah I was young & dumb but it worked out fine.

They hold air. The dry cracking isn't all that bad. For sport tires they're dangerous. To gently commute knowing they're in bad shape they'll be fine.

I didn't ride this morning since it rain, but I would have to drive it to school today at 6 but will be cautious when cornering.

I do have a 110 front for you, but will have to unmount it. It's a Pirelli sport demond. I can mount the Q3 on the 250. I can do it in the am if you need it ASAP. Charley Mike?
