.... or does it show what a nanny rider I am? I just replaced a rear tyre on the Hornet. I bought a BT-021 on the 3rd of November 2007, with my odo reading 106,192 kilometres. I just replaced it with another of the same type, on the 26th September 2008, with the odo reading 121,520 kilometres. That's 15,328 kilometres. I didn't think that I babied the bike; the chicken strips are permanently non-existent, (regular trips up and down Macquarie Pass) but obviously I ought to be treating them much harder than this .
