    After Sundays ride to the coast on 84 and various roads I discovered the
    rear Sportec split on the left side off of center. Close examination
    revealed (in my opinion) that the tire cracked from stress. It looks close
    to a scalloping effect. No obvious cuts or gouges from a foreign object. By
    direction and driving hard out of left turns the tire simply broke--and deep
    too.

    The meat has maybe a 1000 miles on it. This may be one freak incident. I
    have not heard of others failing this way. Check your rubbers for ga[
    ^ ]ping holes just in case.
