I've been looking over the threads on changing tires. My question is DO I need new tires. As this season is just about to start, I'm wondering if I should get new tires. I have a 2004 Busa with 4500 easy miles. I have never done a wheelie even though I've tried. Just in case your wondering I have 3 bikes, this one just doesn't get rode as much, although I hope to change that. The tires still have good tread. They are original. It gets stored inside during the winter. I guess I'm wondering if the rubber can/does break down after 7Â½ years or can it get hard etc. I plan on riding it a little more this year, especially with gas prices going up up & up. Now if anyone thinks I should change them instead of running them another year or so, then I would like suggestions on what tires. Standard 120/190 on it now. I don't do wheelies or burn outs, just the once in a while WOT. At this point I don't think I will take it to a track anytime soon either. Most riding is solo with a passenger maybe 5-6 times a year. So hopefully you guys can give me some good advice. Thanks in Advance.
