The wear bar on the middle is flat with the tire!

Moving to the sides I still got plenty.


I havenít touched the extremity of the tire yet but Iím getting close. I found 2 highway exit I can practice there lol

I can see it on my front tyre, but havenít seen it on the rear, or at least not yet anyway. I guess itís something to do with the moulding. Still a bit of meat left on that rear isnít there? I can see that the wear bar is just about smooth at the bottom on the right, but have you checked the tread depth? Oh and donít worry about looking like a noob, on each side of the tyre thereís a circle with the Michelin man logo. Just touching the edge of that circle is about as far as I ever go. Iíve been slightly further than that on a couple of occasions, but not very often. Always good to keep a bit of lean in reserve on the road. The absolute limit of the edge should be reserved for track.

BTW: Did you take that off pavement?

So after 12 620km my rear tire is done.. front is still good for a few kms.


Sad note: I still havenít found a nice road with a lot of curves near my house to burn to sides tires.

I commute a lot with the bike, and sometimes highway.

So I look like a complete noob that ride only on a straight line lol.


Anyone else saw a straight line appeared on his road 5?

I got the worst possible picture of my 20k km lol. Snapshot from my GoPro with moskitos on the lense, sun on the screen, and blurred picture because I zoomed. But hey I got the 20k lol

Rich,
Do you have any pictures of that hook up?  I have a USB outlet I was going to hook up there.  Basically plug and play, wasn't sure if you wrapped with electrical tape, if anything, etc.  Thanks.

Hi, they are bullet type connectors, Iíve put the manual image below , not very clear I know ( mine are now under the screen!)
And I got a pack of these connectors of amazon to make the connection.
As you say seal with electrical tape or as I did, put some heat shrink over the join.
