A tyre in normal use would not last three years. It would have worn out and mostly likely got replaced long before three years is up. Motorcycle tyres just aren't expected, or designed to last...

Firstly, a 2014 bike with a tiny mileage will almost certainly be on its original tyre which will be well past its best by now (especially after standing). The cracked wall is a tell-tale sign. ...

Production was moved to Spain in early 2010, March if I recall?

I know for a fact VIN ending 9421 was first registered on 01/09/2009, so yours is definitely an Italian built MY2009 bike assembled...

As has been previously mentioned - the front is not a safety rim. Only the rear has a safety rim, with a lip to prevent the tyre bead slipping inwards when low on pressure or deflated. Up front...

The limiting factor you have to deal with is the 2.75 rim width. A 140/80 is as big as you can go without the beads being pulled in too far in relation to the section width. Even then, a 140 on a...

Not going this year, but have been in the past. It's pretty good; plenty to do and plenty to see. The only snag is finding your way through the sea of BMWs!
