Really bad timing, but I'd say YES!

Mom, I'm not wearing my helmet only for the purpose of taking this picture and
the background was digitally blurred to make it look like I'm going really fast.

A rear blow out is NO fun, so I say yes, park it Bro.

Crappy timing, but I'd rather miss a few days riding and be sure my tire's not going to fail. The only thing worse than a rear blowout is a front blowout....

ya, i got plenty flats with the dirt bikes. the hard pavement is much less forgiving. she'll be parked and i'll be crying! (well at least bitching)

I would definitely park it if the threads are showing. At that point it could blow at any given moment depending on how bad the threads are sticking out. Better to miss a few days of riding then to miss a few days of your life.

Well, don't feel alone, I just parked my bike for the exact same reason. AND...I just blew my cash on putting new brakes in my car , so the odds of being able to pick up a new rear tire in the next month has pretty much been reduced to zero....at least you have one on the way.

I don't know Dutter, but wanted to say I'm running those same tires on my bike, and I really like 'em.
