Nah, bad idea. You know it could be the other way around. 1" strip means you don't know how to get around a corner safely, insurance premium raised proportionally

I agree about the roads where you ride. I live in a city area so there aren't any Twisties near me. Hence my 3/4" chicken strips on my '16 636. I'd have to travel over an hour away to the mountainous area of Northwest Jersey to get that kind of action. That'll happen next summer as I just got my bike in September.

If I could find a tire with a little grip I'd be rid of those chicken strips.

I accomplished this on my first track day with only about 6 months of riding experience! This stuff comes natural to me though. That and I have a lot of good teachers! I was happy.

I just got my bike and already lowered the chicken strips from the previous owner after about 100 miles. I am hitting real twisties this weekend and should get closer. I feel like the track is the only true place to completely and properly get rid of strips. I just dont have that confidence on the road to be dragging knee because of gravel, possible pot holes (I live in PA...stands for Pothole Attraction) They are errwhere!

It's normal to have a small chicken strip from street riding. If you are using the entire tire on the street, you're probably gonna get killed sooner or later. Too many variables.

Part of it is visibility, too. Even if you knew there was no gravel, can you be sure you won't come around a corner and a car is pulling out or is stopped in the lane?

Never ride faster than you can stop

Exactly! if it was a visible corner and I could see around it. Awesome. (I hit those hard and dirty!) But otherwise I would rather have chicken strips to talk about than a broken broken bone and not being able to ride again. I always ride with full gear. You just never know what might happen. You can take this two ways but I usually ride like it might be my last. (In my case I am alert, I am very attentive at intersections even if I don't have a stop sign/red light. I do not trust other drivers... at all.

I have an idea. Find a good piece of road with some really good turns and practice going back and forth over it. Find one with little traffic and turns that you can see through. Practice, practice, practice. Stay safe guys.

That's how I started out but doing a beginner riding course then doing a novice track day is way smarter and safer than just chancing it.
