Ordered a new rear tire this afternoon. I got "screwed" during a 300 mile ride in Southern Indiana Saturday. When we discovered it after the ride it wasn't leaking but since a plug kit and mini compressor was available the screw was removed and tire plugged. It performed flawlessly on the way home yesterday (200 plus miles) but knowing how I ride at times it seemed prudent to replace it before my next long ride. Other that that, it was a great weekend, 840 miles from Friday to Sunday.:)

That's fast service! But aren't they out of Louisville or Lexington? You could have walked a couple blocks, knocked on their door and had same day. ;D

Several of the local dealers here couldn't get my wife's tires for atleast 7 days, but no more than 10 days. I came home, ordered the exact tires from MSS and had them in 3 days, free shipping. Makes me wonder about the dealers a little.

It's the difference between being a store with a supplier that has regular weekly shipping schedules and being a customer that gets something shipped to them once. The dealers probably have established shipments when they get inventory, and are just waiting until then to add your tire to an existing inventory order. Maybe??
