    Re: Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT

    I bought my 06 ST in June 2016. Immediately purchased Michelin Pilot Road 4GT's the first week, even though my bike came with new Dunlops. The rear Dunlop failed at high speed the first week of ownership. The sidewall separated from the tread on an 80 degree Sunday afternoon. I have over 14k on my Pilots. Bought new pilots today, Jan 10, 2018. What a great tire. Well worth the extra 40 or 50 dollars per tire. This is not an endorsement, just my personal experience. Special note: At 61, I ride aggressive. So, yes. I am impressed Michelin. One day, during heavy rains, I rode 100 miles at high speed. The bike responded well with these tires. I felt at ease. For me, the extra dollars are well vested for the return of handling, confidence, longevity and quality.

    I'd read up on that shop at resellerratings.com.

    3 5-star reviews and 4 1-star.

    EDIT: Also, why not move up to the new PR 5 ??

    I have 2012 when factory tires were showing white I replaced them with Pilot 4. I have to say that best tire I have ridden on ST1300 or my previous ST1100. What amazes me most is wet condition grip. I now live in Texas compared to Arizona previously and my experience with Rain was limited. I was never very confident in rain on my ST1100. The ST1300 did not change that till my first set of Pilot 4. I only worry these days about passing Semi's pushing major water volume in very heavy down pour.

    You think you gain confidence and quality with the Michelin's, next tire change try the Pirelli Angel GT tires, you'll never look back.

    It's a good price but still $100 more than a set of T30s which I prefer over Michelins.

    Agreed. I flip-flop between the T30s and Angel GTs.

    I just read on Michelin's site that the new Road 5 is not yet available in the 'GT' version for heavier bikes. It won't be out until sometime in 2019.

    From Michelin's own site:
    "MICHELIN Road 5 Standard versus the GT version

    The above sizes of MICHELIN Road 5 tires are designed for naked bikes and roadsters such as the Triumph Street Triple and the Suzuki SV650.
    Heavier grand touring bikes such as the BMW R 1200 RT or the Kawasaki 1400 GTR require the GT version of MICHELIN Road 5, which will become available in 2019. Until then please choose MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 GT tires."

    To me, there is just something about Michelins. I've used them since 1974. Whenever I have deviated from Michelins I've been sorry; bikes or cars. I guess their marketing has worked on me.
