Take a look at the Bridgestone pictured.
36hrs prior, the wear indicators denoting safe water dispersion and roadworthiness were seemingly adequate for a day ride.
The Coast to Coast Twistybutt is not a normal day ride. Then there’s the ride home… Snow melt, numerous weather zones possibly with rain, punctures…
Best take a good look at brake pads, fluid, oil, coolant, chain and battery while we are at it. Do you have a puncture repair kit? A lot of those roads are no place for bike troubles. Best be prepared and leave the worry at home and just enjoy the ride.
So, how’s your rubber looking?
