Chicken Strips!
I can drag pegs.
So what do I have to do lay my bike over in the parking lot and spin it each way until the branding is half worn off to win?

And no sanding your chicken strips


Eventually the light always fails you.

Too much leaning my Spirit 1100 and something drags. I'm not sure if it was the foot pegs or the engine guard. I try to keep it from scraping around the corners.

Probably not a real good idea to be dragging pegs and floorboards on cruisers, but here's some additional spice for the mix. Here's a pic of my front tire on my VFR800 Interceptor after riding 500 miles with a 25-30 knot crosswind (roughly 7-10 degree lean angle) at 70-75mph. Tire is Bridgestone T30.Didn't photograph rear, but it had a nice bevel too...

If it jams, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway.

I'm an old fart, so whenever riding with a group, I always take up the last position in the pack and let the young bucks have their fun with peg and floorboard scraping through corners no matter which bike I'm riding that day. The twisties don't have any appeal to me as it's way too much work. All my chicken strips on all my bikes are there until the tires are worn out and replaced.

I'm usually the guy going 5 mph slower through the corners than the speed limit. Things take a lot longer to heal when you're old.

Riding last, they won't pop wheelies over you or run you over. I think that is the wisest position if you are unsure of who you are riding with.

A lot depends on the shape of your tire, rounder profiles will have more not scrubbed, this is my Valkyrie tire, the marks 1/2" from the edge is not the scrub line, its the got hot line, there is no scrub line...... well there almost is, there are a few spots around the edge not touched
