Thanks everybody, for the welcome back. I got the tire replaced this morning, and have it back on the bike. I'll be heading South tomorrow morning! Unfortunately, I didn't even look at the inside of the tire when they removed it. I also left it there, so I probably won't be contacting Michelin to complain about a tire I don't own anymore. Lol! Glad it's behind me, and I'm ready to roll.
