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 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

The problem with most tire reviews has to do with timing. The time at which you are prompted to write a review is when you've just purchased the tire. At that point you know little or nothing about what the relationship will end up looking like.
I popped this Pilot Road 3 on the front of my BMW K1200RS just before a long-ish road trip. Put 2000 miles on it over a weekend. Tire rode great, handled what little rain I saw and didn't go flat. More than that I can't really say. But the out-going Road 2 could have done the same. It was mostly slab riding, so traction wasn't much tested.
I do now have a bit of a hum coming from the front end but I can't tell if it's the tread pattern, or a wheel bearing on the way out.
If I remember to check back in 8000 miles, I'll have a better feeling about whether I've bonded with the Pilot Road 3s.
Yes, I recommend this product.
