    how do you guys break them in? I'v heard about people sanding them to scuff them up a bit. What does everyone recommend?

    yes just go out and ride and gradually start to increase the lean angle. Most people eat it on new tires because they forget to bring them up to the correct operating temp before acting like Rossi

    I soak them in my bathtub in a bubble bath first, then read them a bedtime story before putting them away for the first night. I let them sleep in the next morning and then we get down to business. First, I lean them only 43.5% for the first few turns - left and right. Then move on to 67.948% turns. I stay there for a few miles and then I take it back down to 43.5%. After a few hundred miles at that lean angle, they are good to go.

    **It's key to use bubble bath that is safe for babies eyes or else you may have some premature wear on the tires.***

    I hire illegal aliens to take mine out and roll them up and down the street.

    Just ride them easy for 30 minutes or so, they gradually increase your lean angle and your good. Take it farily easy for the first few hours on them, then ride dirty
