You must be either on Mt. Lemon or more towards San Manual??1987 classic 250 Rebel, new bike to me with 13.300 miles and I love riding it. More after it thaws out up here in the mountians.
Unless they're dry-rotted, hardened, splitting at the sidewalls, or lacking legal tread depth --- I have no problem with tire age. Expiration dates are just a myth that was drummed up by tire manufacturers to sell more tires more often. Note how helmet manufacturers jumped on that bandwagon immediately after the tire manufacturers...manufactured the myth.Just got a '13 all original, even tires (yeah, I know)
