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

Have felt nothing but solid confidence in wet or dry. Running out to the edge of the tread and holds its line very well. Just need the rider to keep up with the tire.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I ended up going wider than stock by 10. Smallest size the tire was available in. Byproduct of this I am running right to the edge of the tread. No fault of the tire though. Great traction, good confidence in the grip and wear has been quite even. Running it on a 300 I don't have issues overpowering the tire with aggressive riding.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good length, I got a longer curved tire iron as a companion. These should work out well as holding my place, while working with the longer iron.

Fits nicely inside the suit, and flexes well with movement. Hopefully I'll never find out how much abuse it will take,

Textured finish makes it easy to grip. Great length for good leverage. Already pried on things it wasn't meant too and has stood up well to the abuse.

Very happy with this bag. It's a little pricier than other bags but I like that it comes with the rain cover and a face shield sleeve. Love the interior organization. Holds the tank very well. It would be nice if the map pocket was a bit bigger - but it is really nice that the pocket snaps off so you can read it out of direct, glaring sun light.

I waited too long. Just being able to listen to music is so much nicer than just air buffeting noise. At 60+ my wife and I (on separate bikes sometimes not even within sight) have been able to talk to each other, and with my current helmet I can't hear much. Downside, I prefer to wear ear plugs, the unit really does not go loud enough for ear plugs too.

I was looking for a removable mount option for my go pro. The suction cup attaches very securely. I am paranoid so I attached a lanyard, but have not had it come loose yet. Convex, and concave smooth surfaces, it has held secure for 200+ miles.
