Every new motorcycle I've ever bought, or every set of new tires installed, I've either done that, or gone to similar lengths to scrub the tires. Except my NC700X with zero km's showing on the clock.Pop the front wheel up on the curb. Let the rear wheel stay on the road. At an angle continue travelling down the road. "What chicken lines?" Takes some practice but it works. The only reason why i do it (with new tires) is because i don't like slippery surprises when cornering.
Guess which only bike in the history of my 44+ years riding, chucked me on my butt, 5 ft. out of the dealership driveway? lol
But it was my imagination, of course. New tires aren't slippery anymore, and they don't have a mold release compound on them, according to everybody who "knows".
