I am painfully unadept if not near inept in using the search function on this site. Cannot find any mention of the Michelin Pilot Road 4’s in their GT versions. Actually, couldn't find any tire thread 'cept this one. Doh. Apologies if I am wasting others' time.
So, I am ready for new tires for the GRiSO.
I have been unhappy for several reasons with the Michelin Pilot Activs I have on it now … but mostly with their most very noticeable sidewall flex … and mostly with me because I knew about that and also knew I am no 100-pound jockey in the Kentucky Derby.
Thinking this time, it'll be Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT's, i.e., not "standard" MPR4's.
Claimed to be designed for heavier sport-tourers, I am thinking that certainly fits me
… and the GRiSO is no dainty lass, either.
With exception of the Activs, have always liked Michelins. Have MP3 (standards, not GT’s) on Norge now. Like ‘em fine.
Have had Metzler 6’s (as OEM) on the GRiSO, followed by Pirelli GST, then the Activs.
About to order these in 120/70 front ($149) and 180/55 rear ($203); free shipping.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Anyone have these?
Any thoughts why that’s an unwise course?
