Tires: MICHELIN® Road 5

Annual Mileage: 5,000-10,000
Location: Baldwinsville, NY

I replaced my Pilot 4 tires in March 2018 with Road 5’s…not knowing they weren’t really rated for my bike. I road them all summer 2018 and down to the BMW Rally in Lebanon TN. I had a good bit of rain through PA , MD, and Virginia. The tires performed excellent in dry and wet conditions. I rode through some pretty difficult rain and never had a single issue with hydroplaning or traction. Once I got down to the rally and spoke with a Michelin rep at the rally – Scot Clark. He explained that the tire was technically not a correct fitment for the bike and was happy to hear of my joy with the Road 5. I decided to purchase a set of Pilot 4’s at the rally for the ride back since I had about 7000 miles on the Road 5’s and they were starting to get close to retirement. Scot was very informative and I was extremely happy to talk with him. I love Michelin tires on motorcycles and have been using them on and off for the last 25 years on many different bikes. I would highly recommend them. Thanks Michelin!!

I bought my tires 5 years and 15,000 miles ago in Daytona. It’s been the best tire I’ve ever had the pleasure of riding on! Finally putting a new rear on. I really think I could get another year on it but it’s in shop for repair so doing it now! Thanks so much for dedication to supplying a top notch tire!!!

Tires: MICHELIN® Commander® II
Motorcycle: 2003 Harley-Davidson® FLHTCUI
Annual Mileage: 10,000+
Location: Indianapolis, Indiana

To all Parties concerned:
I have been a loyal Harley-Davidson Dunlop motorcycle tire buyer for 19 years. A year and a half ago, I was convinced to give Michelin Commander II motorcycle tires a try. I have always gotten about 10k miles on a back tire and 15k miles on a front tire. On my 2003 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic. I felt like that was the norm and doing good. I was completely surprised to find out that after finding a nail in my rear tire yesterday, that I have 20k miles on the back tire. And would still have more life if not for the nail. It is amazing the extended life of your tires. I am a 365 day rider I can’t remember the last day that I did not ride to work. Rain, Snow or Ice. My Ultra Classic has 209K miles on it, without a motor rebuild. If I had been running Michelin’s that whole time, I would have saved a lot of money!

Thank you! I will be recommending Michelin’s to everyone!

Put these Commander II tires on both front and back of my 2010 ultra classic Harley and after 18,000 miles on the first set, I’m putting on another set. I haven’t even hit the wear bars yet. Handle great, great during wet weather, corner great. Very expensive but you get what you pay for. Thanks for making great motorcycle tires.

Tires: MICHELIN® Scorcher®
Motorcycle: Harley-Davidson® FLHTK
Annual Mileage: 10,000+
Location: Milwaukee, Wisconsin

I always used Dunlaps tires, and decided to try out MICHELIN Scorchers, and I was impressed and convinced that I was getting more tire for the money spent. Not only do I have 16000 miles on the tires, the tread wear appears as if I can go another 10000 miles before replacement. I was at my local HD dealership who was interested in selling me a set set of tires, ended up asking me what did I do to keep the tires lasting so long. I maintain proper tire pressure on every vehicle I operate but never have I gotten this kind of miles out of a motorcycle tire. I found the tire to be very quiet, and handles very well during turns and fast braking.

What I am most impressed with is the handling in the rain. I have been caught in many rain falls from very light rain that makes the pavement more slippery to downpours that obscured my vision. Not once did these tire make me feel insecure. They really gripped the road. I have to friends who thought I was crazy for running 70mph during a downpour of rain but when I told them how the Michelin Scorcher felt as if they become glued to the road, stop very well, and allowed the same amount of torque to the rear end, they both purchased the same tires and are still thanking me. I will continue to pack miles on these tires and after the season is over, if the treads are still looking this good Daytona Beach here I come. These tires allowed me to increase my lean angle when going into curves, I completed The Tail of the Dragon in 20 on a full dresser, I impressed myself thanks to having solid tires. When I replace these tire, I will be getting the same make and model tires.
