    Expectations old race slicks

    Got an track bike with old tires on it. Was wondering what to expect out of tires, lack of traction, stiff, too soft? Rears: dunlop sportmax slicks 195/70, front: dunlop kr106 125/80. Made in 2006. Was hoping I could get a few sessions on the safely. They've been stored indoors in a garage. Had a few races on them. Its my backup bike but I will be taking it to the track in hopes of a few sessions on them.

    Play it safe, grab a set of tack offs from someone fast. As a track day rider, find someone running teens at NHMS and buy from them. You'll get more then a few days out them at an advanced group pace and you help poor racers to boot.

    What he said.
    Find someone to take pity on you and hook it up with some fresh takeoffs.
