Safe to do the trip? weather looks good. or should I take the truck and order new tires next week?
    If you're talking about a PR4GT rear and the thin centre tread is still present it will easily do 700 miles unless you ride like crazy.

    BTW, my wife insists on Michelin. Otherwise I probably would have ended up with a T30 EVO GT this time around - about a $75 switch with the Bridgestone rebate going on right now.
    Likely NOMB, but why would your missus care which brand of tires you install on your bike? I just switched to a pair of T30 EVO GT tires after using Michelins for the past 5 or 6 changes and when I told my wife I'd saved $120 she was impressed. The only downside I can relate so far is the rear was a beotch to get onto the rim compared to the PR4 GT it replaced

    I bought my ST1300 and was riding fast on the way home. I was running 75 mph and my rear went flat. I swapped ends twice and it came out of it. The Michelin stayed on the rim. I think they saved my ***.

    It could have been worse than a flat - it could have been an Avon Storm!
