Denny, my (un)professional opinion is that the tyre is f*cked :-)

Thanks Yorkie mick very educational .
But ive found out my tyre has delaminated on the right hand side but it could be down to the road factors will never know I suppose

Tyres will only delamienate if there is a problem in manufacture or tyres being used incorrectly ie under inflation over inflation causing tyres to over heat.

Hi JP I am very carful with tyre pressures and check them everytime I go out with a digital gauge so would be gutted if it was due to inflation problems.
As Jinx says Michelin have a background of delaminating so perhaps its that the tyre is nearly at the end of its life tread wise so it could be all related another thing I was thinking was as you know I have had my suspension set up and He said it was way too heavy on the front so perhaps this has contributed as well .
Perhaps I brake on right hand corners eeek Lefts are my faves as you have the thing in your head that theres a little more tarmac there lol have you done the first bike post yey JP  I was looking forward to your reply on that one

Royal Enfields can still be bought new they are made in India they look almost the same as the original RE they now have indicators a cheep speedo instead of a Smiths and a cheep carb instead of the old monoblock or concentric depending on which model you had concentric was up to the 250 and the monoblock went on the bigger 350 and 500 singles. Now they make a Desiel its been around a few years but not caught on as they hoped it would 100mpg but sounds like an old Lister engine

I was in Skegness last weekend and spotted a retro BSA. Like the new enfield types. Never seen one before.  All you have to do ,when your new Enfield sheds a cable,is call in at the nearest Indian takeaway. Lol ??  While the old Enfield was known as a Royal Oilfield. Lol ??

Some of the Brits were renowned for a splurge or two,but that was part and parcel,back in the day. Although with a bit of care,some where better than others and pretty tight.
 Just like my Sporty,which throws oil out of the breather and cleaner. Splattering my leg in the process. As far as I know some sporty's do it and others don't so much with varying amounts of spray. All adds to the character though Smile
 Diesel bikes. Just wait until we go electric Thumbs Down

Just as a point I have 1 of the "new Indian Royal Enfields" I get 96.4 miles to the gallon on  fair distance run [cruising at 70 on a motorway from NW england to East anglia ]about 300 + miles each way.Admittedly it has their EFI unit but it has been "looked at" by Hitchcocks lol. So far no complaints and it turns more heads than most when I thump way through town hehehe WinkLOLClap
