I don't think I'd go that far with a tire. Somehow I don't think riding on a tire in that condition would be very safe. Maybe it's just me. No, mine were'nt that bad.

they're pretty well done-- you got a white strip up the middle--like you
were riding on a skunk's back!!!

> Got some new tires put on saturday. I bought Avon Viper Sports. 120/65 on
the front and 180/55 on the back. My old tires were worn beyond belief. They
were so flat that I would have to literally force the bike into a turn. I
didn't realize this until I took it for a ride with the new tires. Holy
rubber tree Batman! Now all I have to do is lean slightly to one side and it
wants to roll right into a turn. It feels so much more stable too. It was a
little unnerving at first but once I got used to it, I love them. New tires
are the bomb dog!
