geez, i bought a new Triumph Speed Triple, when i got home with it 60 miles later i had a screw in the rear tire, replaced that, now i see this!

just checked my front Pilot Power, made in SPAIN. WHOHOO!

i knew that tire smelled to good to be from France.

Looks like my front falls into the dud category..
Patrick, are you honoring Michelin's new tire + mount and balance deal?
I need to get a new rear while I'm at it My 190/50 is squared out so bad its not even funny :confused1 Houston and all its flatness :eh:
I want to wait for the 190/55 but ! How many times have they moved the date back!?

Got off the phone with Michelin, they said mostly with high speed riding in higher temps the tires could de-laminate but they don't have any reports of total pressure loss or any injuries (yet). Looks like what happened to Rossi last season..

I'll keep you all posted.
