Hard to find better

Pauljac - July 29, 2019

Got roughly 8K/ 10K out of my DL1000, it never let me down once and I rode all weather. But twitchy when new, but only got more stable over time. I wanted something slightly more sporty so replaced with A41 (not a bad tyre), but when these are worn I’ll be going back to R5 for sure.

Got the Michelin Road 5 rear tire, alrea ..."

Blackend13 - April 22, 2018

Got the Michelin Road 5 rear tire, already have the pilot road 4 on the front still. And all ive got say is ive got abot 1000 miles on it this year and i am loving everybit. Cold, hot, raining weather it performs very well, to the fact of i no longer have any chicken strips on either side of the tire. Again great tire would recommend to anyone. I am only giving 4 stars as of now, since i dont know the mileage i can squeeze out of them yet.
