PostSubject: + Feedback for Pilot Road 3 Tires   Thu Aug 06, 2015 5:36 pm

I have a set of Pilot road 3's with about 2600 miles on them. I'm a daily rider and have experienced the full range of street legal (sort of) activity on these shoes, from super hard breaking to twisties and high speed. I wanted to say how much I liked them, but whatever, who cares, then during an oil change and tire pressure check, I saw this....... Need I say more, GREAT Tires.

Impressive pix.  

I routinely ground my EV (no great feat, even with the upgunned rear suspenders on mine), and just did, two-up on my Norge, this past weekend on some "interesting" back roads in western Pennsylvania.

But, for many reasons -- some involving cowardice Rolling Eyes  -- I have yet to touch down anything hard on my GRiSO.  Well, OK, I guess a lowsider is "touching down."  Embarassed

But, self-deprecattion aside, have never had what I viewed as a happy fit of tires on it, especially the last, MP Power Pures, with sidewalls that caved in -- at least at the weight challenges I posed  Shocked   -- like a virgin eager to change her status.  Wink

Anyway, I have had some MPR3's on my Norge and found them seriously fine on all the things we (at least I) want, i.e., (and in order) safety, performance, mileage..

As my GRiSO was in some need of new tires and I was a bit skittish about its "Pures," I went with MPR4's.  http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/michelin-pilot-road-4-rear-tires

All of 20 miles on 'em, but all of those on roads I might better have avoided with new rubber, and they convey that joy we all know when we have new tires.  To say more would be stoooopid at this stage, but I am interested to see how they do v. the MPR3's that have been grand on the Norge in all sorts of road and weather conditions ... and in several "pilot error" events, too.   Evil or Very Mad

I almost went with the GT's, intended for heavier bikes and riders (and the GRiSO when topped with me might just qualify  Embarassed ), but a veteran rider talked me out of those on the ground that, even "under the circumstances," I would find those too stiff for anything but track-quality roads, especially as the GRiSO already has buckboard tendencies.

We shall see.

Best from the top of Virginia,

Bill

Very cool, thanks for the feedback on the tires. Please come clean my garage. Yours makes me jealous.

Cleaning a garage is relatively easy ... it's the "empty" part that I found mystifying. Wink

I have a pair on my sport and i have to say that they make a good handling bike even better and grip like shit to a blanket even in the wet.

The MPR4's are incredible tires on my BMW K1600GTL. When my GRiSO needs shoes, that's what I'll get!!
Just my $0.02 for the latest MPR's.
