Thanks fellas...some interesting thoughts to ponder for sure...
After reading Dill's reply got me thinking...
I could become a professional 'tyre whisperer', talking soothingly to my tyres, poetry even, or play Pink Floyd to them even.
Willie Nelsons "On the Road Again" one tune to avoid though.
V-twin Victory Torque coupled with a heavy right hand and abrasive road surfaces seems to be the culprit though.
Not that I do burnouts or anything like it,
I do like to revel in the sheer grunt through the gears, and travel quickly whenever I can.
Taking shortcuts when riding no particular place just isn't on though DP, as I generally take the long way to anywhere, though my destinations are usually unknown
