uhm...wtf? Is this guy depressed about his divorce and loss of his bike? Or does he really have a valid point about leaving tires in a room temperature for a long time gives you more grip???

Well, it works for bicyclists but they hardly have the same demands or temperatures that motorcycle tires see.
Could be good but there is a great deal of techonology in tires... too much for me to take a chance on a possible dry-rot. If it's worth it, manufacturers will start selling aged tires.

From my first hand, ashpalt surfing, experience fresh, new, un-aged tires stick best.

that's the stupidest thing i've every heard! aging a motorcycle tire gives it less stick. probably lance armstrong's bicycle tire was cooled at room temp from the melted-rubber state-- i doubt it was aged after the rubber was artificially cooled.

that quite possible the lamest advertisement for a tire ever!

Lance's tires were (are) kept in his mechanics basement as a completed tire. Not some 'special' factory process. Off the shelf stuff stuck in a basement.

This idiot with his Pilot contradicts himself beyond measure. If he stunts - he doesn't care WHAT tire is on there as long as it's rubber.

Besides - tire technology has come a nice long distance in the last four years.

Hey, thanks.
I love it, but some people didn't appreciate it.
Oh, well.
I have plenty others to gross them out.
