Hi Jamie

My own 888 had its tyres done like this when I bought it. (It's not the 'done thing' nowadays tho, is it..?)

Sorry it's a bad photo.

I did mine a few years ago with the proper white tyre paint. It actually looked quite good but cracked as soon as a rode the bike! Very difficult to make a neat job of it as well.

I did it on my R6 a couple of years ago. You can buy a white "TyrePaint" pen from most car/bike shops (Halfrauds too). Takes a while, do it carefully and make sure the tyre surface is very clean and dry. The paint never cracked for me.

This is something I can still not decide whether it looks cool or tacky. Jury's out I reckon......

Ade.
