Respect the rubber!

Some good advice ,

" Motorcyclists fitting new tyres to their bikes this spring should ride with extra care for the first 100 miles to avoid any potential hazardous slip ups .
The advice has been issued by TyreSafe at one of the most important times of the year for riders, as many seek to make the most of the longer days and lighter evenings.

During the tyre’s manufacturing process, its surface is coated with a release agent to prevent it from sticking to the tyre mould. In some cases, this non-stick property can make the tyre slippery on the road when it is first fitted to a bike, presenting a potential safety hazard for riders.

To overcome this safety risk, riders are advised to avoid maximum power, hard acceleration, braking and cornering for the first 100 miles or so. This period of gentle riding allows time for the tyre to ‘scrub-in’ while any traces of the release agent are removed from the surface. "
