    I guess I'm one of those guys. 03 HD with only 8K miles. I will say that she has never been on a trailer to a rally. I work a lot and cannot use my bike for work because of the amount of stuff I carry for work. Believe me, with the cost of fuel today I WISH I could use my bike for work. The tires on my Deuce only have 8 K miles but they are 6 years old and I have noticed some cracks in the side walls. Are some cracks OK or should I immediately replace them ?

    Don't feel bad. My '03 Deuce only has 5200 miles. Of course, I just bought it last October with 4400 miles. And I put it in storage in November and got it back out this April, so I have put a few miles on it in the few short months I have actually been able to ride it.

    Six years is wayyyyyyy too old. Not that I ever had tires that lasted me a year, but I seriously doubt that I would have two-years-old tires on my bikes.

    Get some new Dunnys 402's . A set of tires is cheaper than a hospital visit and your scooter will get scuffed also.

    Good luck and Ride Safe
