chicken strips and tread

hi,

what are chicken strips on tires? also tire tread: 1) is it 1mm (i have an r125) 2) how can you use a 20p coin to check tread (the edge bit of the coin is 2mm) 3) should you check tread depth along the whole of the tire or just at the edge if it meets a marker (i think it's the michelin man's hand on mine).

Thanks

Chicken strips

I had the peg down 2 or 3 times on roundabouts the other day. Messed it up so now I need to look for a second hand one. Still have 4-5mm chicken strip on that side though. Personally I prefer it like that, because it means I'm not going to fall off the edge of the tyre even when the pegs are down!
