    good tire better than pilot cts

    replaced a set of pilot dual compound wear seems way better ride is a little stiffer from harder compound but overall great for the price tire has been discontinued being replaced with road 2 dual compound hope they are better than dual compound pilots separation and cupping problems.

    Good tire for a great price.

    I'll probably purchase the Pilot Road II (or III) tires next time, but so far have been well satisfied with a matched of the 1st generation. I put ~ 5k miles on the current set and judging from the tread depth believe I might manage another 4k miles w/them on my '98 VFR800FI. Based on what I've read Pilot Road IIs are very highly rated among VFR owners and represent a noticeable improvement in grip & longevity vs. the 1st generation. If true they must be amazing.

    I ride a 2002 Kawasaki ZX12R and I am about 280 lbs with gear on. I have used these tires front and back for almost all of the 50,000 miles that I've put on the girl and I usually get about 8,500 on the rear and about 12,000 on the front. We also have very rough roads here in Alaska.

    Pilot Road #1 version rear tire

    2nd pilot road 1 that I have ran on my 2002 Fz1. I get about 5k miles out of a rear tire but I ride hard and this bike puts out a good rwhp number.

    great tire for a competitive cost

    Excellent tire for the cost, amazing thread life, good cornering and traction on wet conditions, the best touring tire in the market.

    Michelin Pilot Road Rear Tire

    Unfortunately I haven't been able to ride much since I put the tire on. I've only put a couple thousand miles on it, but it still looks like new. I live on a gravel road and the tire hooks up so good that I find myself running 50+mph down my curvy gravel road. On the pavement it sticks like glue. I hope it lasts as long as everyone says it does. If so, I'll buy a truck load.

    Pilot Road Rear on BMW R1200RT

    Tires are awesome, my 3rd set used on this bike and just got back from a 4,000 mile trip to the SE corner of the US and it was HOT down there and all the way back and only lost 1mm of tire on the entire trip. Rain helped on the freeway portion of the trip but the tires worked very well in the twisties in Tn, Va, Wv, Nc and getting great mileage on this set. I got 11,000 on the first set of these I put on when I first got the bike...Very Pleased!!!

    pilot road rear tire

    Seems to be a great tire for sport touring. Pilot Road is a very good alternative for everyday use.

    michelin pilot road

    I like this tire. I have 9300+ miles on this tire {old oem tire}. I still have plenty of tread on my first tire, but 2 nails holes have ended this tire's life. It handles good, very good on wet roads and dry roads very good in the twisties. It's mounted on a Triumph Tiger 1050.

    Michelin Pilot Road

    The Pilot Roads have been a good tire on my FZ1 although they are homily. I got a little over 4000 on the rear and will be replacing it at around 4500 since it is getting close to the ware bars. I will be replacing this tire with a Pilot Road 2 to get a little more mileage although I usually only get around 4000 on the rear of my FJR. I guess my throttle hand is a little hard on rear tires.

    Seem to last forever but the grip is questionable

    These tires have decent initial grip and they also transition relatively well despite the odd (almost semi-circular) profile of the front. HOWEVER if you're used to sportier tires, you need to be very careful not to over-ride them. More powerful bikes will put a lot of heat into the rear especially if you're riding aggressively in the turns for prolonged periods (even more so on uphill sections). When these tires get too hot, they get greasy and you'll find yourself spinning up the rear when you least expect it. Basically these are great tires but if you live for the canyons, they aren't for you.

    How do you guys get such great mileage?

    I ride a DRZ400SM and I keep reading about these heavier, much more powerful bikes getting over 10K miles on these tires, but I'll barely get 7K on my rear (no cords showing yet, but if I ride a couple more weeks?). The life is much better than the stock Dunlops which only went 3400, but I was expecting much longer wear after reading reviews and listening to other riders talk about them. Other than the somewhat disappointing tread life I have been very pleased, they stick better than the stock Dunlops (which cost twice as much) too. My front Dunlop is original and has over 10K miles now and is about ready to be replaced, so if the Michelin lasts twice as long as that it would be impressive.
