Motorcycle Tires: Age Matters
by Christine Fernie,
ACMM Safety Officer
How old are your motorcycle tires? Tires can become dangerous when they get too old because they can become brittle from exposure to sun and oxidization. I had this experience in my second year of riding (crystalized and bald tires).
For people who ride little, the risk of their tires being old is higher. So, share this great knowledge with others and maybe get someone to buy you a coffee for eliminating a hazard they did not know they had.
This is your safety tip for the month. Check the dates on your tires and check out this article to see how to find and read the date.
