anybody remember for a brief moment during the 990 era, motoGP were actually mucking around again with 16" hoops (ie. the rear on a D16RR is a 16" special). or should i say MICHELIN were mucking around...? i guess the trend left when they left and bridgestone decided there was no point in continuing. i had hoped this arms race would've spawned DOT treaded "sixteen-fives" at the consumer level, but it seems the economy (compounded in no small part by our OWN devaluing behavior) put the kibosh on all that. we will get nothing and like it. :rolleyes:
