    Welcome to the forum.
    If you have not bought the bike already ask the dealer to swap the tires for Michelins.
    On our current bikes the Kansas City shop swapped tires on one of our bikes for no charge as part of the purchase deal.

    Don't have any experience with the A41, it's a relatively new tire, but I've been impressed with the reviews on it. They have improved it enough that it is now on my list of a potential replacement tire for my R100GS. Unfortunately, I've not been able to find a heads-up comparison between the two to help me make my mind up.

    I do like the fact that they have designed the inside of the tire to be easy on an inner tube if one has an unpluggable flat and needs to get home.

    I do have the Bridgestone's on my bike as well. I wish I would have asked the dealer to change it when I got it. I do not like the Bridgestone. I have almost6k miles and cant wait till I change them.

    My customers have been happy with both.

    If whatever you end up with isn't exactly what you want, it's a great excuse to go ride a lot more so you can toast them quickly and move on to the next experiment sooner than later

    There are motorcycle owners, and there are motorcycle riders.
    And then there are those of us for whom motorcycling is an essential part of our journey - a way of life, and looking at it.
