GSA-Joe’s Story

Tire Rating: 4 Stars 4 Stars
Tires: MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4
Motorcycle: 2015 BMW R1200GS Adventure
Annual Mileage: 10,000+
Location: Tampa, FL

I have had these Pilot Road 4 Trail tires on my GS for the past 6k miles. I ride my bike daily to work, weekend travels, and long distance trips. Recently I took a trip up north to West Virginia, Ohio, Pennslyvania, Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia. The Road 4 Trails handled well for the trip in the rain and typical hot day road conditions. I would recommend this tire for any GS rider or adventure touring rider. I normally would run a Anakee III tire which gets 12k for being able to off-road it as well which is what I would be jumping back to on my GSA as it was stock tires.

    Tires: MICHELIN® Commander® II
    Motorcycle: 2011 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Ultra FLTRU
    Annual Mileage: 5,000 – 10,000
    Location: Ottawa, Ontario

    I have been using the Commander II’s now for the past four years. I absolutely am
 sold on these motorcycle tires. I have obtained over 33,000 kms on the rear (then punctured
by a nail) and lots of tread remaining. Put on a new one and headed for the Tail Of The Dragon.
 The ride is superb on the C II’s, wear is unbelievable and handling is truly amazing. Well done Michelin, please keep up the great work.

    Motorcycle: 2008 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide
    Annual Mileage: 5,000 – 10,000

    I would recommend the Commander 2 to anyone with a touring bike. Since changing to the Commander 2 I average 14000 mile on a rear tire. This is riding 2up and sometimes pulling a trailer. Excellent tire.

    Tires: MICHELIN® Commander® II
    Motorcycle: 2008 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail
    Annual Mileage: <1,000
    Location: Burnaby, British Columbia

    When I bought my Harley Davidson Heritage Softail, I don’t like the tires Dunlop as feel uncomfortable on the road. I changed the new tires Michelin Commander II. I love it and feel so safe for me on the road and easy to control, it is very smooth. I felt to drive on wet road and dirty too. It was good with brake.
 Thank you Michelin.

    Tires: MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4
    Motorcycle: 2008 Yamaha FZ6
    Annual Mileage: 5,000 – 10,000
    Location: Charlotte, North Carolina

    I had the PR4-rear (installed) at 5,200 and now, it is 14,800 and I reached the wear bar.
 City, mountain roads, highway miles.
 No stunts, no burn outs, no wheelies or sudden brakes.
 I’m satisfied with the overall performance, but only 9k miles, with good maintenance, I’m a little bit sad on that part? The center came to bar pretty quickly and the sides have lots of tread. That uneven wear is unacceptable, IMHO.
 I don’t knee drag, but lean good enough, so, hope there is some resolution for this issue. Purchased May22nd 2015 from RevZilla.
 Air pressure, checked every other week, with automated air pressure pump, and PSI recommended by Yamaha manual/sticker on swing-arm, according to my weight.
