Here is the picture of the tire that came off my 1500. I talked to JC Whitney yesterday afternoon they said the would stand behind it. I took it up there this morning and they gave me another tire. No pro rate or anything. I will be buying all my tires there now. They may cost $10 more. But I broke a tire yesterday afternoon latre. Was riding bike with new tire at 2 oclock this afternoon.
This is one of the new Shinko radials. I think it was just a bad tire. I am happy enough with the tires that I installed another. When the other bike is ready for new tires I will use them there also.
Shinko manufactors these for a GL1500. The best I remember Michelin used to offer one also. I have checked heat and presire on there tires hundreds of times. Especially when I first installed them. I think the radial tire is the best thing you can do to a 1500. I have 2 bikes 1 with bias Metzlers and this bike with the Shnkos. Major difference in the ride
