Folks:

Not sure how many of you have been trying to get a Dunnie Elite 3 250/40-R18 but it seems like a impossible task. I had one on order for over 5 months and finally cancelled it yesterday. Someone said they are on "National Backorder" whatever the he_l that means! I'm currently running a Venom R 250/40-R-18, which replaced the stocker, and it seems to be wearing really well. Got almost 3500 miles on it and not a sign of wear! When I cancelled the Elite 3 I took a credit and applied it to a Metz 280/35-R18. I should have that tire in 6 to 10 days and I'll have that on hand when the Venom is retired! Got the best price on the 280 from DLP, our sponsor :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup:

Crap I just wore my stock tire too the cords ( that last little bit of rubber after the wear markers disappeared in a week of very little riding :eek: ) I ordered the Elite 3 on last Wednesday and they said it'd be here middle of this week. Sure hope they knew what they were talking about .Shudda ordered one a long time ago .Got 12000 Kilometers or 7500 Miles out of it by the way.

I'm the one who was told that the 250 Elite was on "National backorder". I took it as "If you really want one, we can order it and you'll get it whenever. Don't call us, we'll call you... when it gets here." :dontknow:
So I put a 240 Metz on the the rear. I have nothing but praise for how it handles and it seems to be wearing really well, too :bigthumbsup:
