He's talking about a mileage warranty. I may be mistaken, but I think with any such warranty, the install date and vehicle mileage have to be documented by the tire installer, AKA authorized tire dealer.

Said dealer probably won't mount a tire on a vehicle said tire was not designed for.

Plus; using a flat profile tire on the front of a bike is a really bad idea.

I have a feeling it would handle so bad he would take it off PDQ.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I've never had to return one, These are the folks that sell the front and rear tires for Drag/Funny cars. The Skinny's are not DOT tires, we ran them on Top fuel. Never ran any DOT approved tires. Im just looking to get more Miles for my money, and it need to be at least rated for 130.

Two of these will give you 50 to 60 K miles and cost $50 less. They handle and stick exceptionally well.

Yea, 84.00 looks like. I ordered a Shinko for a quick fix, it should be here Monday. I've had good luck with them on my KZ1000, I've always trusted Dunlaps until this one.. The other bugging thing is the grooved surface, usually in the drive lane here so I stay in the hammer lane usually. Only way to beat that is compounds or tire surface. But that looks like a good option. Thanks Dennis, hope all is well in AZ.
