Michelin Pilot Road 4 Front Tires
A truly excellent tire for most riders!
This PR4 does it all: it is well suited and comes in sizes for almost any late model motorcycle, handles and grips stupendously well in the wet and even more in the dry. And tread wear? I put on almost 300 miles before the chicken strips wore off and have 3k miles on them and they still look like new! For anyone that does street-only riding, these tires are for you! Overall, an excellent tire, especially for the price.

On my ride, I came from a Dunlop sport touring tire that was stock on my bike and even though this is my second set of tires, I feel as a beginner riders that theses tires are great for beginners. After putting the PR4 set on, I immediately noticed how much softer the tire and the ride was but didnt compromise my ability to still feel the road. After putting 1K off dry weather on the tires with flawless traction, even after riding like a nut case, I had zero problems. Have yet to have a problem with wet traction as long as they are warmed up.
My only problem is after 4K on my rear, it is beginning to show a lot of wear even though I never do burnouts or such. I hope it will last more than 7k though.

I LOVE this tire, I have put 6 thousand hard miles on it in the 3 months I have owned it. Rain and all and it has not slowed me down or let me down one bit, best of all tires still looks brand new.

Poor ride... Great grip in wet
On my Kawasaki ZZR I've tried Bridgestone and Pirelli before buying Michelin. This is my second Michelin front tire. The first tire cupped badly by 2k miles and the bumpy ride was noticeable from mile one. I removed and discarded that tire at less than 2k miles and I was hoping for better luck with this second tire. But that was not to be. The ride is horrible but it has great grip in the rain. The back tire, a Michelin Pilot Road 3, has about 5k miles and it is wearing well. It rides much smoother than the front tire and has not given any issue thus far. However, this will probably be the last set of Michelin tires I put on my motorcycle due to the two bad front tires..

Long lasting all-weather tire
I bought this tire to replace my PR3 front which lasted 15k miles of spirited riding and the occasional track day. I would not recommend this tire for track days unless you live in a cooler climate and dont plan on pushing too hard. This tire is great if you commute and want something that will last a loooong time as well as giving you great wet grip. Hands down the best tire for a rainy climate like the PNW.

My stock Versys tires seemed fine until someone else at work bought a new Versys. Seeing the tread comparison made me realize that I'd been playing Russian Roulette by riding on mine. OEM tires were shot after 6K miles. I needed something high mileage, and the Pilot Road 4s got the best reviews.
These tires, thus far, are AMAZING. They're smooth on the highway, they grip the turns like velcro, and give much more road feel than the OEM tires. I'm a commuter, and the sense of stability from these tires makes me feel a lot safer on the LA streets and highways. HIghly recommend! I will try to report back in when they finally run down (hopefully at 10K+, fingers crossed!)
