Michelin Pilot Power 3 Rear Tires
Best tire I've ridden yet
I bought one of these to replace the squared-off Shinko on my Speed Triple 955i. I live in Seattle, so a good bit of my riding involves hills and wet streets. I've been thoroughly impressed with the grip and performance I get out of this tire. The back feels significantly more planted now, especially in the corners. I'm pretty sold on this as a regular tire, and I'll most likely buy another one to replace it.
A+++, great tire, would buy again.

This tire is an all around good buy and the price is right
I recommend this tire to any street rider. It is a much better tire than I anticipated. I've put almost 1000 miles on it since installation and I'm noticing very lil tread wear. Its a much better tire than the Bridgestone when it comes to tread life. Im not the most experienced rider but I know a good product when I see it! I'm glad I chose Revzilla, easy and great customer service, not to mention the free shipping.

Is this a new bike?
What an unbelievable difference over stock! It felt like I was on a totally different bike. Turning feels so crisp.

I upgraded from the Dunlop tire and i noticed right away i could take turns faster and more comfortably. a great tire pair with the rear of the same tire and you will notice great handling and comfort, feels glued to the road

So far this tire has performed very well
I have been using Michelin tires for many years and they have worked really well for me. This is the first Pilot Power 3's that I have tried and so far I 'am very happy. I have a Yamaha FZ-09 and 90% of my riding is canyon roads. I 'am pretty hard on tires and its common for me to get about 2000 miles out of a set of sport tires. At 1000 miles so far the Pilot Power 3's feel good and the front tire looks great, no signs of excessive ware. The rear however is starting to cup on the sides and is definitely showing more ware than the front. There is also a small lip forming around the tire where the duel compound changes from the edge to the middle of the tire. So far this doesn't seem to effect the handling and I have seen this before on duel compound tires. The FZ-09 is not friendly with rear tires, and I do have a problem controlling my right wrist so with that taken into consideration I really like these tires so far. I will add to this review after I get more miles.

To the edge
Had these on my 09 Ninja 650 for a couple months before I sold the bike. I loved them great for everything I threw at it. Day one in the rain not even broke in no slips and I was trying to keep up with 1000s. Took some 100+mph turns (us19 to quaker steak for my tampa/st pete people.) Tires never let me down. Never had any issues when I drove my 1000 mile trip. kept pressure regular through temp and elevation changes. will buy again.

Tire slips alot
I have just over 1000 miles on this tire. It doesn't show any wear yet. The tire slips a lot regardless of the conditions on every ride, even when not pushing very hard. In contrast, I have very rarely had any other tire slip. I'll be going back to something else next spring, whether or not these tires are worn out.

Much better than stock tires
I put over 5000 miles on the Bridgestone Battlax tires that came with my 2009 Monster 1100. I don't ride too aggressively, but even I can tell that these tires have more grip. I avoid wet riding, and only have about 1000 miles on these tires, so I can't comment on those categories. I was about to go with the Diablo Rosso II's, but these went on sale. I am very glad I got these. A fellow Monster rider bought the Diablo Rosso II's and he got less than a couple thousand miles out of them.
