Hey there fellow CBR500R riders!
I just got my black beauty two weeks ago, did my first "tour" this weekend worth about 800km, clocking in at a total of 1500 now. Needless to say, the bike is a blast.
While riding, I didnt think about this at all, but after we´ve come home, I inspected my tires to find about 10-12mm of chicken strips on both of them (I have the Dunlop D222 by the way).
I was driving behing my buddy and while we were going pretty quickly, I still had an ounce of "comfort zone" left. I didnt want to risk too much on the first bigger ride though, so I kind of stayed at that level.
Question to you guys now :
Has anyone here ridden the Dunlops to their full extent yet? I´ve always been a bit wary of stock tires, but can these things be driven from edge to edge, or will they give in before? And what about the pegs? I kind of feel they will make contact with the ground before I´ve exhausted the width of the tire.
Anyone here with a "spirited" riding style that can offer me some insight perhaps?
