Michelin Pilot Road 3 Front Tires
Best tire for Concours 14
Neutral handling tire cures the "Dunlop Flop" of the OEM installed sport bike tires. Bike feels 100 pounds lighter.

Great in straight lines and the twisty stuff, wet or dry
Rode the Tail, Cherohola, Blue Ridge, and 40/65 on a six state weekend with these new skins - Tires responded well in wet, dry, hot and cold - Lots of confidence in the corners that the rubber will hold and let you enjoy the lean - Great tires 12K in and running strong.

Just got off some Dunlop's.. They came with the bike so they made for a good "control" test. More like a "where do we go from here" test.
These bad boys made my ride feel like a whole different bike! Much smoother ride, along with much smoother (and QUICKER) and controllable hard stops. Its like they eat the pavement for breakfast. I feel 100% more confident going into leans with these. Night and day difference. I'll be looking into another when the time comes. unless, of course.. they only get better! :D

Wish they didn't chop so much
I put these on my Multistrada at 6k miles. This tire is quiet, smooth riding and last a long time. I get 6k mile out of them. The traction is great wet or dry, I can almost forget about the weather with these. The only problem I have with this tire is irregular wear. I have to run this tire about 4psi higher than normal to slow down the chopping of the tread. My tire looked terrible a 4k miles. There was plenty of tread and it rode smooth and quiet but was all chopped looking.Maybe it's the horizontal grooves causing it. Michelin tried to improve it with the pilot road 4, but that front tire is much worse, it chops and rides bad.I may try this one again and just not look at when it chops, it doesn't seem to effect the ride quality.I still ran it to 6k miles.

Best tire for the Concours 14
The local police ride Concours 14's, and this is their choice of tire here in Texas. The PR3 is better for Texas roads due to the rear tire being Med/soft, instead of hard/med like the PR4. Texas roads are slick when dry! If I lived in CA I would opt for the PR4.

Solid set of tires
These Road Pilot 3's were a much needed upgrade to the worn out stock tires on my 2010 Concours. So far after a couple thousand miles I really have no complaints about these. I've been in the rain and the tires felt solid. Dry grip seems more than adequate. As long as the overall tire live end up being respectable I don't see why I wouldn't buy these tires again.

Revzilla Exceeded Any Standards I may have had
Caught a nail in a tire on a road trip. Called the local dealer who wanted double the price of revzilla. Had another road trip planned for this coming Friday. Ordered the tire and had it two business days later. Excellent customer service. Hopefully next set I will get the PR4's built for sport tourings. Way to go revzilla.

I love this tire
I put this tire on my Multistrada at 6k miles when the Pirelli angel gt's wore out. This tire is great. It's quiet smooth and has incredible traction wet or dry. I ride in the rain a lot and even got caught in the snow once. I had to replace this tire on my Ducati a 5k mile because of a flat tire, there was plenty of tread left. I've gotten 6k miles out of it on my Triumph speed triple.I don't even have to think about the weather with these tires, they just grip the road even if it raining hard.The fronts get irregular wear but not the rears, they wear nice and even.I live in the country so all my driving is highway speeds, county roads and expressways.
