Love this StarCross 5 superior traction and durability, on the different tracks that I go to from hard pack to sand. If my buddies ask me what tire they should run I tell em StarCross 5! I love to ride and race on a local level so I need a tire that can multi-task. If you’re gonna bring the ruckus you better be on a set of StarCross 5’s.

Tires: MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4
Motorcycle: 2009 Kawasaki Zx10r
Annual Mileage: 10,000+
Location: Sanford Florida

About a year ago I bought my first street bike. A 2009 Kawasaki Zx10r that had a new set of tires thanks to the new owner. They turned out to be Pilot Road 4s but I didn’t have a clue what that was. The longevity and durability of these tires, especially in wet weather, is unparralled. Living in Florida, we get a lot of heavy rain in the summertime. I got caught one day I a rainstorm and couldn’t see 6ft in front of me. Suddenly the car in front of me slammed on their brakes and immediately I did the same. To my surprise, i did not slide or lose traction one bit. At over 12 thousand long miles the Road 4 is now coming to its end. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase anything by the brand Michelin, and I didn’t even pay for them haha. However, I already ordered my next tire. Went with something a little more sporty. The Michelin Power RS and I can’t wait! Trust your tires! Trust Michelin!

Michelin definitely is not kidding about their tires on wet roads. Just went for a spirited ride around town after it rained with my friend who was completely mystified by how far I had my bike leaned over as if my tire was completely dry. I knew the roads were still wet, but I truly did not know my tires were actually treading standing water through the turns, and the tires did not ever clue me in! The PowerRS firmly tracked my lines as I intended, never slipping for even a millisecond.

I have tried other tires with different manufacturers and have never felt so confident in wet roads than I have with Michelin’s. 
Even in the cold, the PowerRS is a phenomenal tire to have on your bike. Normally, you would want to heat the tire up before heading out to ensure you have optimal grip, but the need to do so is minimal with these tires. Thanks to super soft compounds on the sides, you will still have the necessary grip you can count on.
 The lowest I personally have gotten my bike down to is 57°. One day I will finally go to a track and the PowerRS will be the tires I take with me! I run with 120/70 up front and 200/55 on the rear.

Tires: MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4
Motorcycle: BMW K1600GT
Annual Mileage: 5,000 – 10,000
Location: Elkhart, Indiana

Got 12,000 miles on my first pair (Pilot Road 4 GTs) and I just put on my second pair. These are better that the original brand I had on the bike, better than the Pilot Road 3s I had on the bike previously, and better than two other brands I had on my previous bike.

“Better” is not just a reflection of wear. The wet tracking gives me confidence. They are smooth and quiet. And the look is great. I don’t think there’s a better tire out there for my bike.

I have been riding for over 40 years and have used just about every brand of street tire available. I currently own 4 Harleys and use Michelin tires on all of them. They all have performance upgrades with the Street Glide dyno’ing at over 104hp. I’m usually lucky to get 5k miles out of a back tire. I do ride HARD and FAST so that is to be expected. I recently installed a Scorcher on the front and rear of my Glide and am extremely happy with the performance and wear. I’ve got over 2500 miles on the tires and they are both wearing very slowly. I think I might get over 8k on the rear tire which in my book is outstanding. Here in Louisiana the weather changes in a heartbeat and these tires grip the road in all conditions. I highly recommend these tires. You definitely get what you pay for.
