WOW!!! Glad I was getting ready to change it.
This is what I found this morning as I was testing on a repair of a members EHCS unit on my bike. Later this morning I was going to pull the front wheel and install a new tire for the trip to CCR. I'll admit since installing my Smartire system I no longer stop before each ride (day) and check pressures and give the tires a once over. I think I am going to get back into the habit of the once over. I just got back from a two up trip to the Smokies. Could have been really bad in one of those over cooked corners if this had let go!!!
For the data hounds this was a ME880 made in Germany with a date code of 1609. It was installed in March 2010 and has about 12,000 miles on it.
I'll post the post mortem after I change it out.
