New rear tire = chicken strips??
So I've been riding for about a year now, I use the bike mostly for commuting but I take it to the mountains ever chance I get. I'm on the 4th rear tire now, the last 3, after a spirited mountain run would have 0 chicken strips. My last tire didn't even have the Dunlop emblem on the edge anymore. I put a new tire on 2 weeks ago, then after riding it all week I went to the mountains on the weekend with some friends. After riding easy for a while to break in the sides of the tire we started a "very spirited" run. We stopped for a break (and for one guy to catch up) and I noticed there were still chicken strips. The next session I really pushed it through the corners, the bike feels really planted, and lots of grip, but the chicken strips remain. I noticed the bike likes to turn in now, like if I were to lean anymore it would turn too sharp for the given corner I was in. The guys I was riding with said I wasn't riding any slower, but actually faster. I cant figure out how I'm leaning less and going faster. Could it be because the front tire is squared off from riding highway so much, and the rear isn't yet, maybe the air pressure in the tire (40psi)? Can someone point something out to me that I'm overlooking?
