So I've got just a little over 7000 miles on the stock front tire. This morning I was taking a look at the front tire and had noticed the dry rot has really spread, to the point where I don't feel safe riding on it. Has anyone else had this issue, would you ride on this tire, and what replacement tires are you running?

if it was on a car would be fine, but I get your concern with bike, Bridgestone motorbike tyres are crap, personally my choice is metzeler, every single one I had was fantastic.
I got 10k out of mine but yea I had the same problem
Tire looks fine dry rot?, you got several thousand miles left
I got 18k from mine and looked i little worse
I have 16000 on my stock tire. It's looked like that since 2000. Keep running it till the cracks get deeper. Or if your paranoid replace it.
As long as you don't see it on the sidewall or it doesn't get deeper you'll be fine.
