Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT Tires The Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires represent the latest iteration and next generation of Pilot Road evolution. Designed to deliver maximum safety in most conditions especially on wet roads and in particular when braking, Michelin's goal is to cover all riders in all conditions. Touting both enhanced safety and extended tire life, the Pilot Road 4 tires are a tangible illustration of Michelins Total Performance strategy of constantly and simultaneously improving tire performance characteristics across the range. The Pilot Road 4 GT tires are for heavier, touring bikes and has a stiffer casing with a patented new technology for motorcycle tires that delivers the stability you need for heavier GT-class bikes while riding solo, two-up or with luggage, and the comfort you desire. The Pilot Road 4 GT tires are already the OEM choice for the new BMW R1200RT. Superior wet-weather performance Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires stop shorter in the wet vs. the leading competitive sport touring tires and Michelin Pilot Road 3 Longest tread life in its class Up to 20 longer tread life than Michelin Pilot Road 3 tires Dependable grip even in challenging conditions 2 Compound Technology with all new silica-charged rubber compounds for excellent grip from 23F to 113F New XST+ siping and enhanced tread patterns for optimum grip at all lean angles

I put these on my BMW K1600GTL. I could feel a difference in ride immediately after installing these. They have an ability to smooth the ride even at full inflation. Must be the siping grooves. Have not riden in the rain yet and only have about 1500 miles on them but they show no signs of wear issues. The feel grippy in the corners and turn in is even and well balanced. The GTL is a heavy bike and these tyres are well built for this machine.

I have had the Scala Rider G4 system for several years. I had upgraded the audio to the G9 a few years later. That unit was better but still produced a tinny and sometimes scratch sound. I was hesitant to try the G9x but the plug in ear buds appealed to me. After installing, I was amazed at the sound quality produced by the new G9x audio kit. I'm still using the original G4 unit and have no issues with its function. The G9x audio kit sounds better and the versatility of being able to use my ear buds is perfect. The hybrid mount for the boom mic also improved the install on my modular helmet. The fit behind the cheek pad is much better. Excellent job Scala!

I wanted the convenience of having my phone mounted where I could see it but I wanted to try and avoid the bulky look of clamps on my bars. So I found a way to utilize a special bolt that had a threaded female end as the location for this RAM ball. It simply screwed into the existing bolt and provided the solid attachment point for the rest of my RAM mount. No clamps, very clean, I couldn't be happier. Thanks RAM and Revzilla for providing this option.

Could not be easier. Simply plug into the Canbus port and the charger gives a condition check and alerts you to battery charge state then it switches to charge mode and works with the BMW electronics to safely charge and maintain the onboard battery. Absolutely Perfect!

For a modular helmet, HJC hit this one out of the park! Much better airflow than the previous model and the internal visor works super smooth. My only wish is that they would have included a pin stop lens. Other than that, this lid rocks.

I've had the G4 system for a few years now and it has been great. I bought a new helmet and wanted to be able to swap back and forth so the addition of a separate sound unit was all I needed. The new G9 sound kit was a perfect match. Bigger speakers and a lower Bass response was needed and Scala provided. The system is not a huge sound change but it's a welcome performance boost over the original G4. That plus the corded mic ability made it worth it for me. Thanks Scala for making this G9 upgrade expandable to older G4 customers.

The Revolver evo is a perfect blend of many facets. Price, style, function and fit. It is not as quiet as a solid full face but it is not bad. For $200 you get alot of helmet. The inner shield is a first for me and I love it. Cuts the glare and blocks the wind enough for maximum ventilation when the outer shield is up. I was concerned about mounting room for my Scala Rider G4 intercom but that worked out too. Had to use the glue mount but the position is perfect and does not interfere with the inner shield function. Thanks Bell, and RevZilla for such a great product and service to match.

Works great. Takes a little time to install, but not hard. Best FM reception if right speaker is routed over your head and not around the back. Learning curve to operating all the features, and memorizing button functions, especially the pairing to 3 and 4 helmets. Once done though it works great. 1 mile range is stretching it but 1/2 mile is very reasonable. I use it with my iPhone 3G and it works great. Raw sound is a bit harsh (tinney) but when used with earplugs sound is very good. Auto volume increase is smooth. Phone sound quality is amazing. Callers cant believe I'm talking in a helmet, let alone on a motorcycle. Noise cancellation and VOX work perfect. Very happy with this purchase and with RevZilla. Customer service was friendly,honest and helpfull.
Pros Fashionable, Good fit, Easy to install, Rugged, Comfortable
Cons Complicated features
Yes, I recommend this product.
