Motorcycle Tyres – Should you be able to see the canvas?

Bit of a surprise this afternoon when I was cleaning my bike (first time since Christmas). I knew that my rear tyre was down to the wear marks and had been asking around for prices on a set of Michelin Pilot Road 2s as I’ve heard good things about them. I’ve had BT020, BT021 and BT023 up to now.

Fancy a change.

This is what they call "Part Worn" on eBay...

Is that canvas? Do they have canvas nowadays?
