Well guys I know my rear tire was running low on tread life, but I had to try and make it last one more month. Checked it a few days ago and there was still some patter visible on it and checked it today and found this... I am not riding it anymore until I can get it replaced, but my buddy is gonna mount it to a beater bike he has and take it onto a closed course till it blows... What would you guess for miles until failure?

don't go below wear bars and remember its like a roll of toilet paper when you get down it goes really quick.

On his second though he is just gonna see how long till it blows burnout style... however I have found a deal locally on a shinko 777 for $160 vs buying my own metz 888 and having it installed for about 200 total... I haven't heard much about the shinko 777 rear tire. My front tire is currently a shinko, but not sure on the model and it loves grabbing grooves in the road.

As Ron White would say.........."It will make it all the way to the crash scene".

Like I said the bike is parked until I get a new tire on it. Hopefully my indy can squeeze me in this week before I go to the field next weekend.
