Let's Talk About ''chicken Strips''

I have always looked at my tires after a spirited ride. I know, I know, who else would even think about doing something so shallow?

So I'm humping away on some great roads today and notice at my breakfast stop I still have at least 3/4" to go before my tire is fully "scrubed in" I was a bit disapointed due to the great ride.

So I head off to hwy 1 for a little mid-day fun. If you ride around the SF bay area, you know the PCH sucks mid day. I have nothing else to do, so, let's go. Picked up on an Audi TT that was running a quick pace and just sat behind him. I don't think his passenger was really happy with the pace, but I don't live with her. I could catch him but it would have been "really" speeding. Ran hard up to Tomales and took a look at the tires when I got home, NOTHING, still 3/4" of chicken strip.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love to see 3" of un-used tire on the latest sport bike. But, I just can't seem to find it funny when it's my bike. So, who else looks?
