Wanted to get some advice. Hows the best way to ride on new tyres both front and rear to rid of the "chicken strips"? Slow, fast or ride them on twisties?
Any handy tips would be great.

I always clean my new tyres with meths,also i take it easy with wet roads but break them in when the roads are dry after a few miles.
This year would be difficult.
50 to 100 miles of gentle / normal riding will be sufficient to scrub them in. Increase your angle of lean gradually during that period.
as Marcus says, gradually build the lean. Be very careful in the first few miles, until you've taken the sheen and mould release off, or just go for it, but first watch this:
Thanks for the tips...
I'm a careful rider anyway and live where there are some nice stretches of straight road with a few gentle bends. I'm getting the NC700S which isn't as revvy as most bikes of a similar size.
what they said
They have said it below - take it easy. I've seen a guy go right into a hard turn on new tires (Sorry, I'm a yank and spell it that way" />) and he crashed...hard.
