Am I on the right introduction section? I am not sure since I'm a newbie.

Yeah give me the old chunk the middle out of the tire any day over that
That was the first of the new tires to see use, the old BT003 are all timing out and those RS11 and 10 were to be our replacements , Jim and i had talked it over a bit and the later generation tires seemed to be a good option to replace the old reliable ones
The Aussie bikes had them mounted in March and never turned a tire due to wind then rain, fairly sure i will be removing them and going to something like the Dunlop slicks Ralph used to run

I have had one go sort of like that on the dyno, i suspected it lost some air first as it felt odd just before the bang , tire seemed to begin delaminating then tore as it jammed

Greg, can you provide the actual tire/slick designation that Ralph used ?

Didn't see this. I went the first week in Sept. Rode for 2 weeks straight down there!
 Was fantastic! I like Missouri the best over all. Little to no traffic, windy roads and smooth!
 Tennessee was a disaster of traffic. Kentucky was good, North Carolina was a traffic nightmare in areas as well. Too many folks moved out that way to get away from the coastal regions.

"Thanks Jim" for posting pictures,, Was discussing this with Stevieboywonder and we are thinking that there is, at first, a cross sectional failure due to pressure loss (?????), then the second and third failures are due to the tire whipping into the rear subframe/swingarm :?

Since the SCTA is a bit picky about 200+ tires, and the manufacturers change their naming frequently, I bought a set of Michelin slicks, that have the harder middle compound. Will try on salt next year I hope. One thing to be careful of with slicks is that they are mounted in the correct direction. My local shop asked me if it mattered  :shock:

I've never seen a tire fail that way - how the hell could the radial fiber / thread separate at one point like that? I can't imagine how anything could cut all the way through a tire?
