Question about 2008 Harley Davidson VRSCD Night Rod
If you take aggressive turns on new tires, you may dump your bike. New tires may have sticky or slimy goo on them, either mold-release compound from the manufacturer to make sure the tire comes out of the mold, or lubricant to let the tire slip more easily onto the rim. (Tire manufacturers and installers deny that such materials exist.) In any case, new tires are smooth and have limited traction. Take turns gently, slowly increasing your angle of lean. Slowly is the key: You always want enough of the contact patch to be on the broken-in section that you don’t lose it. Eventually your chicken-strips will disappear.
