This is the worst advice I've ever seen. If you are putting armor-all on your motorcycle tires I suggest you STOP this asap. Armor-all has NO place on a motorcycle tire. You will crash.Google "armor all motorcycle tire accident"Straight from the Armor All website...Can I use Armor AllŪ Protectant Products on my tires; including whitewall, motorcycle and bicycle?Armor AllŪ Protectant Products are ideal for protecting, shining and cleaning your car tires. Just spray onto surface, let penetrate and wipe off for a great shine and long-lasting protection. However, these products should not be used on cycle tires due to slipperiness.
If you don't think it's safe to put vinyl dressing on your tires, I strongly recommend that you don't do it.
Try as I might to lean the bike further and further, I'll continue to ride on the tread - not the sidewall. I'll continue to protect my tires with vinyl dressing.
If properly maintaining a motorcycle scares someone off, then they probably weren't right for the RE in the 1st place. But this way at least they know that maintenance will take somewhere between 10 minutes and 2 days.
