    just received the following email. Don't know if it applies to anybody but here goes:
    NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 09T003

    Pirelli Tire, LLC is recalling certain Metzeler ME880 Marathon motorcycle tires, sizes 130/90 B16 M/C TL 73H and 140/90 B16 M/C TL 77H, manufactured between June 22 and September 13, 2008. These tires were stamped with incorrect load range and inflation pressure information which fails to conform to the labeling requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 119, "New Pneumatic Tires for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of more than 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) and Motorcycles." The purpose of this standard is to provide safe operational performance levels. Metzeler will notify owners and replace the noncompliant tires free of charge. The recall began on November 18, 2008. Owners may contact Metzeler Consumer Affairs at 1-877-202-4993.

    Thanks for the info!!! I put a new rear tire on 6/27/2009 and it looks like they had chunks cut out of it in 5 spots! It only has 8K miles on it!
