I’ve been running my 82 Gl1100 all summer with the tires that came on the bike, almost 1,000 miles. The tires are Dunlop’s. A friend ask me how many years old the tires are, I hadn’t checked because they look like new tires. 4203 is the date mark. Should I keep running these or get new ones?

your bike will handle sooo much better with new rubber,not to mention the safety factor.
