It describes the strips on the sides of the tire that get no wear from leaning... the bigger the strip, the less you are leaning. Thus "Chicken" strips.

I too will wait for someone more knowledgeable than me...

But i believe they are the wear marks on the outside of the tread of rear wheel from those who can get a good lean in a turn. might be wrong.....

see that area shaded in red, the unused portion of the tire due to lack of leaning? That's the chicken strip

I have chicken strips on my bike, but since my tire went flat it looks like I am the lean master. Just ordered a new Qualifier from Pitposse.

Since only a portion of the side of the tire is shaded in red, does that mean the bike was in a skid on that side?


Or, should I just go back into the corner and keep my mouth shut like a good little boy?

Perhaps you need to sharpen your Googling skillz?

If you use Google Images, sure, you get tons of pics of chicken, then there's this obscure little pic of that tire I posted up...
