the Canadian supplier has supply issues too, getting enough tires from Mitas.
between have zero interest in the US & under-supplying tires to markets, it sure looks like Mitas cares but not really that much if they supply enough motorcycle tires. i'm sure their ag biz makes them the $ or why would they flounder so hard? maybe they have serious production capacity issues?
they sure have plenty of people in the US holding their hands out with dollars saying please take mine.
