    Looks like it was a defective road smart 3. 2 in a row. Metzler solved the problem.

    Curious to know the approximate age of the defective tire. An NTSB study says tires should be replaced every 4 years -- 6 at the absolute max -- based only on age, not mileage. My read of the study suggests 6 is too long for motorcycle tires based on their recommendations about "higher performance" tires.

    New tire. 1 year old. Sent photos of the inside to Dunlop and after a very short review they decided to send me a new tire. Tried loading a photo here and kept getting an error. 3 distinct ridges on the inside of the tire.
