Andrew- Make sure you check ride height to ensure she has not been lowered, which can result in the shocks operating outside their optimum range.
Also, even though the workshop manual says you have Boge shocks, you actually have Mannesmann-Sachs shocks, which are pretty much bulletproof. Same brand I have on my 575M and I have only heard of one causing problems for her owner, and that was a leak.
Tires time out after 6 years, so if yours are older than that, like everybody said, time for new ones. You can check the manufacturing date. The one below shows the 51st week of 2007. The Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires I just bought were built in the 19th week of 2014.
Present: 575M 135171
Past: Dino 246 GT 02984, 365 GTB/4 14009, 308 GTS 25125
Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
