No chicken strips here.
I'm well into my first complete set of ME880's on the bike now. And while at first I didn't seem to notice any difference over the stock Bridgestones, lately I've noticed that I'm dragging my floorboards a lot mote often.
I lowered my bike a couple years ago now, and never scraped the corners like I seem to have been doing over the past few months.
I took a great little ride yesterday (along Green Mtn. Rd. for those of you who have been here) and up some spiral twisties on Hwy 3 as well, and really noticed I seemed to be leaning further into the corner, and travelling at a greater speed around the corner than before.
So I checked my tires last night, and I have no chcicken strip on my rear whatsoever. The front does have a slight strip, but the rear, well...wow!.......I'm just stoked to be using 100% of the rear tire I purchased.
I have been making a consistant effort to practice my counter-steering in the corners as well. We (well, me) tend to get lazy sometimes and resort to just leaning, forgetting to really concentrate on counter-steering.
Of course, maybe it was the AC/DC thumping away in my headphones that made me do it.........
