Hmmm bad day for riding for me. First off the bike shop was being difficult about taking back the xena disc lock I bought yesterday. Then when going up a ramp at warringah mall, I had to stop on a speed bump, with one tyre in front of it, one behind. So when I try to take off, I cant move! Tried to push it instead, too hard. Motioned for the car behind me to help me push it, but they didn't budge! Couldn't reverse a bit to get acceleration as the car behind me wouldn't move back despite motioning. So had to revv harder to get over it. 10 metres later I came to the boom gate to get a ticket, but it won't come out. Try bouncing a bit, doesn't help so I hit the button and talk to a lady who tells me to go around it. After watching the movie and coming back to the bike I notice the damage to my rear tyre which looks like iv been doing burnouts all day. I went to management to complain but they give me the you enter at your own risk speech. They say they'll pass it on and I take the opportunity to inquire about whether bikes have to pay. Basically said you technically are supposed to, but since you can't get a ticket you can't be expected to pay. So thats good at least. When I got home I checked the tyre again and I couldn't see the shredded bits, so it looks ok I think. What do you guys think? It was probably grinding a total or 10 seconds, is that long enough to do some serious damage?
