Sissy strips? I think you mean chicken stripes, at least thats what they call them around here. In my opinion it will be hard to get them all the way to the sidewall for the simple fact that our pegs touch down before you can lean that far.

Hmmm... Your pic is making me feel good... I had pretty even tire wear out to within about 1/4 of the sidewall. Unfortunately no pics though as I replaced them the day before yesterday with Metzelers (Front and rear).

:p It gets easier once you replace the pegs. My Pilot pegs don't had the feelers so you can get it over further before they start rubbing.

The heels of my riding boots always drag before the pegs so I get a warning before I start scraping...  :evil:

I've wasted the heels on two pairs of boots (it's FUN) and ground down the feelers on the pegs. Great fun!! :clap2: :clap2: :clap2: :a18: :a18: :2cool: :2cool: :2cool: :2cool:

just a little info for new shaft drive riders, the key is to select the gear you need before going into the corner.If you back off the throttle while hard into a turn ,the shaftdriven bikes squat ,thus lowering the stance ,scraping things (and in some instances bottoming out on the exhaust :yikes: so practice and see what I'm talking about ,so you don't get halfway thru a corner ,with a bump in the middle,and have to learn the hard way! Ive had bros learn the hard way..........it aint pretty
