UPDATE: It seems like the single tire supplier in MotoGP is a done deal.
I've been meaning to write this post for a while, but the recent news that Michelin may be out of MotoGP in 2009 finally spurred me to write. I've been a big Michelin fan for a number of years, as I found their car and motorcycle tires to combine the best performance for my needs with the best quality. After only 600 miles I replaced the horrible Bridgestone tires that came on my truck with Michelins, and I also bought mostly Michelin tires for all my motorcycles. Sure, I'd try other brands on occasion (Metzler, Avon), but in this century I always found better and more consistent performance from the Michelins.
