    My front tire is actually coming apart at just under 4k. What are you guys using for a longer lasting tire? I'm thinking Michelin Pilot 4's are in order.

    Can recommend the Pilot Road 4s, didn't like the slow turn in and flatish front tires profile of the Road 3's but they fixed it with a more rounded profile on the Road 4s. :smile:

    You might want to re-think that. Supposedly with the El NiƱo coming it's going to be a wet winter for us!

    Don't overlook the Dunlop Sportmax Roadsmart II's. They stick great and ride great. They also helped quicken the steering. I'm at 8,500 miles right now and plan to install a new set in 1,000 miles. Some great deals out there too.
