Michelin Pilot Road 4 Rear Tires
Great grip and handling!
I can't speak to tread life yet as I've only got 500 miles on them, but the handling is fantastic once they get warmed up. I don't fear going into corners anymore. It's so easy to roll her over now, smooth as butter. I'd definitely buy these again. You don't lose any handling with these vs. the Sports...definitely go with these.

Great tire, worth the price.
They say you cant skimp on tires. I truely believe this tire is better than the original Bridgestones in traction and wear. I am using this on my Suzuki GSX1250 FA and feel more confident in the turns and they seem to be wearing well too. I think a comparable tire would be Pirelli Angel ST. But I am partial to the Michelin brand.

Pilot4 on Ducati 848
Hey everyone! I just wanted to share my feedback on these tires. The dry grip is awesome! My dry braking is shorter as well! I haven't tested it on wet roads yet so I'll provide my "wet" condition feedback once I go through it. So far, I love it! Response is amazing too! Btw, Revzilla's shipping is super fast too! It was delivered within 2 days of ordering! Far exceeded my expectation! On another note, Anthony needs a new shirt.. someone design him a new shirt... lol

Chose these as replacements for my BMW F800GT's OEM Continental RA 2's after getting a recommendation from a far better rider than myself. LOVE these tires! Fantastic from the moment I drove them off the lot. Grip is outstanding, FAR superior to the original tires. Fantastic feel on the highway and riding the twisties up and down Angeles Crest Highway. Not the cheapest tire, but well worth the extra $ in my opinion just for the rock solid sure-footedness. Only 800+ Miles in so I can't really speak to tread life but no noticeable wear on them at all. One grain of salt, I am not a fast rider so if you are someone that is really going to push it my review should not be part of your decision process. But if like me you fall into a commuter, weekend canyon and occasional "C" group track rider I would put these tires on the bike when it's time for fresh rubber.

Great grip, good in rain.
These tires are great. My bike's feel improved 5 fold after I put these on. Granted the previous pair of tires were terrible, these were a welcomed change.
Handles great in the rain, no complaints at all.

Even better than PR3!
These tires work great on my 2010 R1200RT. I've had them on for about 6 weeks now and no complaints whatsoever. They hold amazing well in the corners. Very smooth and predictable.

5000+ miles and just starting to look worn.
I bought these as all-around commuter and day trip tires for life in the NYC area. after about 500 miles of daily city commuting, I ended up heading out for a 5000+ mile trip around the eastern half of the US. It was Sept in the SE US, so I didn't see any cold temperatures, but I rode in a ton of rain and heat. The tires did excellent. Everything from the twisties in eastern TN to flat out interstate for hours across Texas. I just got back to the east coast, and after all those miles, (unfortunately) mostly straight highway miles, these tires are just barely starting to show a flat center strip, but still have a ton of tread left. I never noticed a loss of grip in the wet, despite riding in heavy rain at times, until towards the end of the trip. A few times, under heavy acceleration (read: wide open throttle on a 1200cc inline four tuned for low end torque), the rear slid around quite a bit. The first time was in the wet, right after a rain. But it happened a few times in the dry, as well. However, that's with 5000 miles on the tires, and I can't really hold that against the tires when previous tires I have bought were toast at 4000 miles or less. I'm guessing that If I can keep the long highway miles to a minimum, and keep the bike on curvier roads where i can use the whole tire and not exacerbate the center strip problem, I'll probably get another 2-3000 miles out of these. I won't be buying another tire for general street bike use as long as these are made. The front tire, by the way, still looks new, and it was put on at the same time as the rear.

I got these for a decent tyre for commuting in all sorts of weather conditions and so far I have been really happy with them! They have great grip and traction in the wet and I have heard they are very durable. If they are anything like the PR2s they will last for ages (my fiance got 28k km out of the front and 20k km out of the rear on his PR2s on a litrebike).
