i was there this past weekend as well and i had bald-ass street tires on my 1200. it worried me a bit when i first got there, but then became a running joke and now i figure if i did it on them, i can do it on anything else. i think the rationale was purely a financial one, although someone else did complain about their tires and got them changed over lunch one day.
there were several bikes with new or newer heidenau k60's on them though.
