Motorcyclists get tyre warning

TyresafePACTMotorcyclists fitting new tyres to their bikes this spring should ride with extra care for the first 100 miles to avoid any potential hazardous slip ups.

The advice has been issued by TyreSafe at one of the most important times of the year for riders, as many seek to make the most of the longer days and lighter evenings.

“After a year of record rainfall levels, many bikers may be taking the wise precaution of fitting fresh rubber to their motorbike this spring,” Stuart Jackson, Tyresafe chairman said.

“While the extra tread depth will undoubtedly provide better safety in the wet, it’s important to treat new tyres with a degree of care and ride with extra caution for the first 100 miles or so while the tyres scrub in.

“As the only point of contact between a bike and the road, it’s essential that tyres are properly looked after. After the initial period of checks, riders should make sure they continue to make regular inspections covering the tyre’s condition, tread depth and pressure throughout its life.” stocks a comprehensive range of motorcycle tyres from all the leading tyre manufacturers, all at the most competitive prices.
