Michelin Pilot Road 2 Tires
Great Tires for the Street
I have about 2500 miles on these tires now, not the first time i have had them nor will it be the last. They hold up great even though i commute as much as i do on the slab, still no sign of squaring. I ride 5 days a week 40 miles each day for work. Rain or shine and sub freezing temperatures. These tires have always held up. While not on the sv, I have run these tires on the track on my street triple and they are fine as long as you pay attention to how hot they get. They can get slippery after a few sessions on the track. Not something you will ever have to worry about on the street or canyon carving. You just dont put a tire through the stress a track day does while riding your bike on the street. Add in these do better then track oriented tires in the cold and wet and last longer, its a no brainer to go with these.

Good long wearing tire.
Good tire but will go back to PR3 for the wet traction.

These are my second pair of these tires on my 6th gen VFR800. They were replaced at around 10000 miles due to a construction staple puncture. They probably would have gone another 3-5K. Grip was quite good allowing 1/4inch chicken strips under normal street ride conditions.

Tread life is above exceptional !
Got these tires about 3000 miles ago on the front and rear and the tread still looks like it did when I first bought them . Really grippy and perfect for spirited riding and normal cruising . Highly recommend !

6k miles review
As mentioned above I have rode this tire for 6 miles and I am pretty pleased with them. Good grip and probably going to last me another 2k miles. I ride pretty nice, no race tracks but I do like twisty roads. More aggressive riding probably 30% of my riding.

I ordered these for my R1550R and then later for my FZ1.
Great grip in all weather and w/5K on them now, I hope to get 2-3K before replacing them.

great tread life
I bought this tire because i needed a tire to last me over 3500miles because i mainly do interstate riding, had this tire on for over 1000 miles, has showed no signs of wear down the middle yet, so far im pleased :)

So far so good.
I replaced my Michelin Road on my Aprilia RST 1000 Futura after 16,264 miles. After 500 miles, the Road 2 seems to have as good or better grip and a smoother ride.
