Those of us who are on the Pashnit website got this little gem in the mail yesterday.
I did not compare prices to SW Mototire, my own dealer or 5th Gear. I just posted it as a public service message. I have purchased my tires already for this riding season at a substantial savings from a US Dealer

Wanted to let you know about the Pashnit.com February 2007 Group Buy!!
Pashnit Forum Thread:
...All Michelin Motorcycle Tires...
We also have the option of a bonus Item: All Yoshimura Exhaust Mufflers
Over a year ago, it was suggested that we try to do a group buy on tires. Well finally, it's here. For February 2007, we're going to do a group buy on Michelin Tires. This Group Buy covers the entire Michelin product line and is not specific to a particular tire model.
Fresno Motorsports ( http://www.fresnomotorsports.com ) was very pleased with our Pazzo Levers group buy during Jan '07 and has offered to sponsor our monthly Pashnit Group Buy once more. I have to give a big shout-out to the owner, Chris, for offering to work with all of us, and extend these great deals to the Pashnit Members & Friends of Pashnit.
Below are the most common & popular Michelin Tires...
pm me via the forum or email pashnit33 at yahoo.com for price on any Michelin Tire you don't see here.

He'd like to offer some special rates to those involved in this group buy, plus provide BBQ Day & Free Food :woot to anyone that wants to head over there on that day.
There was a lot of enthusiasm for a small item to add to the group buy, so a Battery Tender was suggested. This item doesn't need much explanation. I could really use one too, and the price is right.

ITEM #3... Special Bonus Group Buy Item:
Yoshimura Exhaust Systems
k, Going to do something a little unusual and just throw this out there. I was asked if any of the Pashnit folks would be interested in a Exhaust system for their bike? I said have no idea, although seems everyone I know has an aftermarket exhaust system including me.
This Group Buy extends across the Entire Yoshimura Product Line- 4-in-1, dual cans, slip-ons, stainless, carbon fiber, all of it. There's just too many combinations to limit the group buy to a specific bike or type of exhaust, so I'm willing to try this & see what happens. If you want to put an exhaust system on your bike or know someone that might, now is the time to order whatever you want. The very nature of a group buy is a price that is below retail, below internet retail, just better pricing with our group order.
1) To get in on this group buy, you're going to need to do a bit of research on your own.
Yoshimura's website is here: http://www.yoshimura-rd.com/07RRTRC.asp
2) Let me know exactly what you are looking for & I'll get back to you w/n 24 hours. I need all the gritty details. For example: On my Hayabusa I have a "4-in-1, low-mount, carbon fiber, oval". On my ST1100, I have 'Dual Carbon-Fiber Slip-ons'.
3) There is no minimum order required to get the group buy price. As soon as you place your order for your exhaust, it will be ordered.
4) This Pashnit Group Buy will extend for the duration of Febraury 2007 only!
How to Order & Pay for Yosh Exhaust:
After doing your homework, Contact me & we'll figure out group buy pricing for your new exhaust system.
How to Order & Pay:
Pay via several methods:
1) My Paypal address is 'mail at pashnit.com'- Make sure to put all the details on the PP Transaction!
2) Credit card - MC, Visa, AMEX, Discover - call me 530.391.1356
