Michelin Pilot Road 3 Front Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2. With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire. Revolutionary X-Sipes technology maximizes wet traction Michelins newest technology delivers all-weather performance without compromising tread life or handling Patented innovation resulting from years of research and development Sipes increase the tread's drainage capacity Sipes generate pressure at the edges of the sipe blade, which helps to break through water film Two compound technology combines tread life and cornering grip 2CT incorporated into all tire sizes, front and rear Wider soft-compound shoulders on the front tire, compared to its predecessor High performance and environmentally sound 100 non-aromatic-oil rubber compound

My third set Nd will not purchase another tire. I ride a Versys 50/50 highway and paved canyon roads and the traction on these is second to none. Front getting me ~ 12k miles and ~5k on rear. I am getting less miles than most on the rear, however the performance is worth it.

I commute 30 minutes one way daily and just completed a trip from Southern CA to Vegas riding in conditions down to 26 degrees and remained comfortable. Solid product and highly recommend for keeping the wind out and making the ride more enjoyable.

I have about 2000 miles on the tire, mostly paved roads. These were replacement tires from factory originals and the V feels like an entire different bike. Versus the stock tires the Pilots allow me to ride more aggressive; break later into a corner, dive deeper, and get on the gas earlier while exiting the corner. I just completed a road trip from Southern Cal to Vegas in both wet and dry conditions and the tires provided great grip and feedback. If they continue to perform this well throughout their life cycle, i will not hesitate to order another pair. Great product from a great company.

I wear these boots everyday commuting to and from work and wore them exclusively during two weekend trips. Speed laces and top cuff allow easy on and off. Lite weight with solid ankle support. Due to my arches needing additional support; I replaced the manufacture inserts with a stiff aftermarket insert. Very comfortable and they look great. While i have not had an opportunity to test the water proof factor, I highly recommend this product for commuting and weekend trips.
