Michelin Pilot Road 3 Rear 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 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 All tires listed are Z rated tires Note The size denoted by B is designed for loaded touring or two-up riding

I've put about 1400 miles on these since I had them installed 3 weeks ago. That includes 2 trips to the tail of the dragon. I haven't been caught in the rain yet.
The factory Dunlops were sticky but also soft which numbed the feel of the road and made transitions feel sluggish.
The harder compound of these tires give excellent feedback and is very confidence inspiring. The bike now leans over with very little effort. I haven't reached the limits of traction with these tires so I don't know how they react but I've accelerated hard out of 2nd gear corners and they just stick.
For myself, these tires are superb and I will very likely buy them next go around. They still look brand new with 1400 miles on them so I imagine they'll last over 10k.
Yes, I recommend this product.

When I set out to find a daily use boot I knew I wanted something with good ankle support. My top 2 choices were the Dainese Dyno and These. I went with the Dyno's to begin with as they appeared to flow more air and my friends all recommended Dainese. Although the Dyno's are great and are comparable to these the toe protection dug into the top of my feet when walking which led me to exchange them for these.
A little further comparison, the Apex's don't have as much soft foam on the inside and fit a little looser than the dyno's but I suspect it's because the dyno's have an extremely narrow design. The Apex's are stiff! you might get a blister or two on the top of your ankles.
I would suggest getting some nice socks with these, normal ankle high socks will be a little short.

I usually wear a size 12.5 to 13 depending on brand. I ordered a size 46 as the 47 would have to be ordered from Italy and I didn't want to wait 3-4 weeks. Overall I was impressed with the boots.
However, I did end up returning them because although they fit comfortably when I would take a step the edge of the hard protection over the toe would press into the top of my foot. I wore them for about and hour and made small movements to see if they would stretch even a little as the pain of taking a full step was intense. Unfortunately nothing changed and I didn't want to risk scuffing the boots so I opted to exchange them.
They do offer very good ankle support though, which was my key reason for buying them. I was sad to have to return them as I really like their looks and protective qualities.
