So, I get back from lunch...

been f'n with the cards on this FZ for a few days, sticking slide, and a sticky butterfly. Think I got it now. So, I skip my noon time lunch and head out to the lil corner store/mexican eatery about 2:45....

I get back and I see a tire by the front door. I am thinking that my neighbor, who rides an HD, must have ordered it. Dose not look like something for an HD.

WTF!?!?! Its a Pirelli Angel GT!!!! I have not even had the time to run over to WWH and pick up a rear. I guess I will have to do that next week.


Pirelli may have just stole a Michelin customer

IT was that promo deal from a few weeks ago.
Buy a rear and get the front for <s>$25</s> free, plus shipping.

I am obligated to get the rear now.
I'll get it before the 20th (ECR).

You better watch it, if you don't get the rear they will repo the tire when you least expect it.

I am a bit stymied why they would send the front if you did not purchase the rear. Usually you have to show proof of purchase.

I didn't think anybody followed up on that thread I posted about the Pirelli promo. Glad to hear at least one other MHer did. I got mine too, but of course I'd bought the rear from WildWestHonda already.

I read in other forums that other folks also got a front tire without sending in proof of purchase. Regardless, $159 + tax for a set of brand new Angel GT is the tire deal of the year.

This is from another site but:
"Thumbs up Pirelli! A great deal got even better. They have changed the deal - they are shipping the front tire directly to us FREE! Just got this email:

Update on the Pirelli "Fly into Summer" Angel GT Promotion
Hello Mike,

Great News! We are ready to start shipping the Angel GT Front Tire to you. Even better news, we will be paying for the shipping too! Since we got such a great response to the promotion and everyone was so patient while we caught up with the power of Social Media….we wanted to thank you by paying for not only the FREE front tire, but also the shipping. Thank you again everyone.

We will begin processing the orders with Claim ID #1 and working our way through to the end. We anticipate this process taking 1 – 2 weeks. Your next and final email will be that with your shipping info. We have processed all of the Proofs of Purchase received to date. You can check your status anytime at www.getpirelli.com. You will no longer receive an email with a link to the store to claim your tire, we will automatically ship your tire to the address entered into the claim form.

Thanks again for your support and interest in our promotion. Enjoy “Flying into summer” with your new Pirelli Angel GT tires.

Thank you again for your participation.

The Pirelli Team."
