Two thumbs down here.

The rear tire is almost bald down the middle with a 1" long crack where the center tread changes direction. Front tire is a little better.

Didn't even make 10k. that seems pathetic to me. They cost as much as Dunlops.

Went to the nearest Honda dealer as the Kaw dealer is still insisting they can't get Elite 4s. Maybe they can't, but everyone else can. Even at Honda, I had to push to get the Elite 4 in the right size.

All I can say for the Bridgestone is I never had to add air. Even getting it out this spring, it still had 40 psi. So there's that, but I'd rather add air than buy tires.

Hello sheiserman;

Exedra Max front and rear. The dealer said that is their most popular tire.

Had I been thinking, I'd have bought a car tire this time and given that a whirl.
