Default Michelin Man

I just washed my car and noticed something new. I have Michelin Pilot Sport A/* tires. On the shoulder of every 7th or 8th tread block is a little michelin man a little more than an eighth of an inch tall waving at me.

I've loved michelin, my red mountain bike tires are nice, and not just for show, best damn tires i've ever used! Still grippy when worn down far. I'm thinking of getting those Pilot sport tires next year, how do you like them?
