When time comes I will put the Elite 3's on again. Do a search on this site and you will find a lot of positive reviews.

You want safety first then tread wear when buying tires.

No problem.. I forget STUFF all the time.

the Elite 3.. has good grip in Rain...and you can lean over Hard and fill comfortable.

I run them both.. Front and Rear...

I didn't get much mileage out of my battlax 200, also looks like a 180 on the back of our 1800F , I did like the price I found a good deal on it that's why I bought it just to get a feel of a different tire, but I went back to the Metz 200, in my Pinyan that is the only time to go with and still get a fat look, and good mileage

Ya don't wanna push it too far...
My tire looked like that once but I kept riding and just checking at each fill up. I was 100 miles from home when I spotted this...



Ended up having my wife come get me...
