Please post pics of worn out darkside tires

Post  rp3 on Sat Jun 23, 2012 12:01 am

I am just going dark on my Honda ST1100 using a GL1500 wheel and a Federal Formosa 175/60-16.

I want to see worn out tires and the wear patterns (any and all: not just Formosa) -- corresponding pressure info would probably be nice for us to see also.

My Vredestein at 22,500 or thereabouts - even wear, just hit wear bars after hard riding, much 2up pulling camping trailer:

That's for sure true Harley friend, but it's just one way to read my post.
By the way, I will be in the US within a couple of months to make some miles !
Keep you posted.

Here is a picture of a Michelin Alpin Primacy PA3, a RF winter tire I run on the back of a GL1800. This tire has 18K miles and was run at 32 psi in the hills of East TN, North GA and North Carolina. Maybe 3k slab miles out of the 18K. I removed it to put on new rubber prior to a Darkside ride in this past spring. Both bikes in the last picture are running this tire.
