My elite II is about done. I was able to get the last Michelin Pilot GT front tire that I could find left in the U.S. last spring. I have zero luck in finding a rear one. Figures, seems like a great tire and like everything else on the planet that's any good, we can't get it. I am reading that the elite 3 is NOISY! I read that the Metzs come apart!. I read that the Avons are great to junk. So. What do we old 1500 scooter drivers do for a safe,, well made tire? Anyone have a couple of the Michelins extra that you would part with?
