7k Little To No Wear
I wouldn't say I was hesitant to try these tires, because if you read around on the forums, this tire is pretty much THE tire for sport touring. Let's just say, it didn't disappoint in over 7k miles of use.

I put these on my '02 VFR and set out for MI from OR on a 6k mile trip. Twisties in OR, and CO and CA. The other 9 states were flat out boring. Boring, but fast. Mix in an average freeway speed of 92 mph and a backroad speed in the high 70's, and you should be blowing through tires quickly, at least cupping right? No.

I recently took the VFR in to my usual shop and the guy was adamant I would need to replace my tires after 6k. I said, "No, really they're like new" and he said that they would need to be replaced. Fine, whatever, I'll show you I thought. I brought it down for a service and he looked at the tires and he said "You're right, you don't need new tires". NO @#$@! I still have nubs in places and I was leaning it all through CO and OR, and flat spots are non existent.

Bottom line. Get this tire. It's grippy enough for street and works awesome in the rain. Never had a slip issue on any corner and it warmed up well in cold morning starts. If you want a race tire, and actually race, get one. If you want real world use and longevity, don't mess around, just get these.

Rocket ride on rails
My Hayabusa eats tires like a child eats candy... but not these tires. After 5000 miles they still look new. The coolest thing that I noticed was how quickly the bike lays over going into curves now. It makes it feel like a 600cc bike with endless power. It was a little discomforting at first as it felt like the bike was gonna fall completely on its side. But it stops falling in just the right angle just as abruptly as it falls out of upright. I feel like I am on rails on even the tightest curve. If you ride as many miles as I do (35 miles one way on combined curves and freeway 5-6 days a week year round) then these are the only tires you should ever use on your busa. Great wear, great traction, great wet weather grip, great stopping power.....this tire is great in every category!!!!!

Saving my bacon
I've got about 11k on these babies and there still going strong. Great for the commuter and spirited rider. I live in coastal Washington State blessed with miles and miles of traffic free twisties. Also blessed with 80+inches of yearly rainfall.Sometimes you just got to get out there. Got caught in some foul weather leaving work one night. 35 miles of coastline with big wind and rain.I swear these tires saved my bacon. Good grip in some very challenging weather conditions. Just a great overall tire.

Awesome Tire
I am running my second set of these on my BMW RT; they last a LONG time! I run 38-40 PSI in the rear and logged over 14,800 miles before I changed out the back tire before starting a 4,300 mile tour of the eastern US, otherwise I could have gotten a full 15K out of this beast. Very neutral handling. I use with balance beads. I will probably have to go with the PR3 or 4s next time around, these are getting pretty scarce now. I've run many other brands and these are the longest lasting by far. Never made 10K on any other tire, more like 8 or 9K.

Best tires for the street
I discovered these tires a few years back, when got into "Sport touring" riding with my 09 Ninja 650R. They are by far way better than the original OEM Bridgestone 021. The first impression was- the bike stays glued to the road, don't wonder around on a windy day... Than the grip on a twisty road is excellent- don't recall EVER to slip and slide the rear on a sharp turn, what was a common case with the OEMs. The wear is phenomenal too - the rear gets around(-/+ 1000mi) 10k mi, front gets 20k mi. Since than I use these tires on ALL my bikes (I never go to tracks, just street fun) - FJR1300, GSX-R750, Duke II supermoto. They perform outstanding, never had any problems or complains. I will never even try another brand, maybe only the newer versions of the same tire... I have had some Dunlops on a Harley, also Pirellis on my FJR and Magna V65 when bought, they don't even come close to Michelin, don't waste your money! Other tires don't grip so good and have less than half the life/mileage, at the same price. Go figure... Thanks, Michelin, for the excellent tires!

Amazing addition to my FZ8
My tires were showing metal so I needed to buy new ones. Did my research and came across these. Ordered them, they were here in 1 day, had them installed at my local dealership and they have breathed new life into my bike.

-Extremely comfortable taking corners tighter than stock rubber (Even Wet just not as comfortable as dry lol)
-Feels like it grips 10x better now
-Comfortable on the freeway
-Looks like they will last but will have to see for myself in a thousand miles

All in all, would purchase again

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.

Perfect Tire for Wet Conditions
