Great wet or dry
I ran the PR3 for a 4k mile trip from DC to Newfoundland. I got rained on every day, and rode in temps ranging from 34-100F. No issues at all from these tires, even in cold rain in the mountains of the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia. Plenty of slab and back roads along the way, and they wore well, even with an improperly aligned rear wheel on my '01 V-Max. With all those miles, the rear was beginning to show a little flattening in the middle, but my bike weighs 570, and I weigh 230...Add luggage and an extra fuel cell, and the tires had their work cut out for them.
They were great. There's not much else to say.

The bike handles better than ever!
I have a '99 Kawasaki Concours ZG1000. She is a "Sport-Touring" bike that was built from the Ninja 900. This tire was recommended by other riders of this bike so I went with their experience and I am glad I did! The tire has made a huge difference in handling and the bike remembers it is descended from the Ninja Sport Bike! I am VERY pleased with this tire and can't wait to find some curvy roads to zoom around.

After two sets of PR2s, I decided to try the PR3s for a little more peace of mind in the rain on my BMW R1100RS. Have about 4000 miles on them, including a 3000 mile 7 day trip circumnavigating Lake Superior. Miles are mostly straight, with more interstate than i'd like to admit. Can only feel a tiny bit of flat spot. Can't see it yet. Went through several rain storms with no issues. Completely confident in the twisties with them, all the way to the edges.

4k miles later
I have this on my CBR250R and it is a great tire. I put these on this winter. So far it's been confidence inspiring in the cold down to 30 deg, through the downpours that's been happening this spring, and up to about 80 degrees F. I commute 70 miles one way to work and I have never had an issue with traction. Now that it's getting warmer I'm leaning further into curves than I have before with confidence. I can ride through rain with the same speed on the highway as if it was dry. Not once since I put these tires on my bike has my ABS even triggered during braking and I've had a couple of emergency stops. I'm looking forward to getting my practice in my turns because they are more confidence inspiring than the stock IRCs I had.

I got about 1700 miles on it and you cant tell that any tread is missing. It handles corners like a dream. And is flawless on wet roads. I highly recomend this tire.

9,000 and counting
Put this tire on my 2009 Ninja 650 last year at the tail of the dragon. I was able to drag foot beg with no problem! This bike is mostly for commuting to work and it's been doing that with ease. I have over 9,000 miles on it and I am just about to hit the wear marks on the tire. Can't beat that!

Good, but the jury's still out on tread life
New tires are always great, but I'm not sure how much to attribute to the placebo effect and switching from my old worn tires to ones that are actually round on the bottom again. Break-in went smoothly, traction seems to stay very consistent through cornering.
It hasn't rained yet, so don't know about the wet traction, but the tread pattern seems like it should do well.
