#2555: Rubberubbed

Motorcyclists spend too long thinking about their image, sometimes at the expense of their safety.

One example is that bikers with unused portions of their tyre wall feel bad that they don’t corner hard enough to wear down these ‘Chicken Strips’.

Today’s invention eradicates the dangerous temptation to lean too far into corners. It is in the form of a device at the tyre factory. This would undertake a final process in manufacture, during which the available tyre surface would be lightly abraded and re-textured so as to make it all look a little used.

This would be easy for the factory to do in a highly controlled way, slightly reducing tyre life but correspondingly extending rider life.
