  5. no burn out , try good power . have a good look at the side , it is being used to commute . You guys have to look for a biatch on every thing .

  6. On a ride to Phillip Island one year, I jumped on the SP to head for home.

    Walking back to the bike, I see all these white stuff all over the tyre.

    Get closer and see the canvas poking through the rubber. The ride home was a sedate one.

  7. At the end of the day it's your safety, i would change it.
    Take in to account Melbs unpredictable weather, you don't want to get caught out.

    1000kms on a communter thats what 2-4 weeks of riding?
    Change it, better safe the hurt and sorry.

  8. was joking about the extra klm's , This is on the Duke I borrowed while ther Buell is being fixed , got the tyre 80% like that , Did the same today Vic , walked past the back of it and went (ooppps) best fix that , had to put a front on it as well to keep them matched , atleast now the rain does not scare me as much.

    Cheers
