My bad. I wasn't clear about one of the tires. I was clear about the cracked slick, but I didn't clarify that the other tire was a Conti Road Attack 1 intended for my GS that was aged 5-years plus when I received it. That was the one I sent back with the distributor's blessing. I received an RA2 as a replacement after I shelled out the price difference. That company was quite obliging.
Thanks for catching that.
For more clarity, I will abide by the 5-year age limit on ALL new tires. I do, however, hold race tires to a shorter storage time limit. And, I don't dig cracked tires whatever the age; blessed or not.
That's just me and I'm a scuffer.
