3 Y/O Tires

Picking up my leftover '14 1300 tourer next week.
Should I be concerned about tires that are 3 years old, and only driven 4 miles?

I don't know the date of manufacture. (Didn't think to look.)

It has been in the showroom, sitting on carpet.

No concern until you hit 6. My bike was 15 when I bought it and had the factory tires on. THAT was a problem.
Now, please check the date code on the tire. They could have been 2-3 years old when installed

That was great advice to any of us ragtopmg...all of us should be aware of the tire wear, cracks, or anything that matters in securing safe tires on our rides! Ride safe and enjoy~YammyV
