Michelin's felt when they were brand new so it isn't the " new tire syndrome"

1. Quicker turn in compared to the Michelin's
2. Much smoother ride
3. Much quieter- Michelins were noisy from day one.

I was never happy with the ride of the Michelin's and just chalked it up to my first experience with RFT tires, I can not see why anyone would spend over 300 per on the Michelin RFT.
What is the Michelin Tire Myth? Is it like the Jersey Devil Myth?

BTW, I wouldn't want to spend over $30 on any RFT, unless it was to remove it.
