Tire Rating: 4 Stars
Tires: MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4
Motorcycle: Yamaha FJ 09
Annual Mileage: 3,000 – 5,000
Location: British Columbia
I wore out 2 sets of original spec Dunlops on my FJ in very short order. Based on recommendations from my online friends, I bought a set of Pilot Road 4’s. I did notice that despite being the same size, the rear PR 4 was a bit narrower than the Dunlop. Despite this, I am VERY happy with my purchase. Very little break in time, excellent grip wet or dry, and very forgiving. They give a little warning when getting to the limit. If the mileage ends up being as good as others say, I will be a very happy customer! This is my first set of Michelin MC tires. Likely wont be the last. I gave them a 4 star review, may upgrade that to a five depending on just how long they last.
Tires: Commander II
Motorcycle: 2012 Harley Davidson
Annual Mileage: 5,000-10,000
Location: McCormick, South Carolina
Immediately after having these tires installed, the first thing that struck me, (other than a beetle in the forehead), was the cornering of the Commander II. I travel a lot of “twistie-turnies”, and the handling of the Michelin’s is noticeably better than the stock Dunlop tires. I also had the opportunity to take a couple of 800+ mile trips. The Commander II tires felt slightly “harder” than the Dunlops, but in now way detracted from the riding experience. More importantly, after running these tires for a few months and a couple of thousand miles, they still look new. For real, there is almost no noticeable wear. I’m anxious to take these tires to Daytona, (because it always rains on me going to Daytona), and I would like to see what they can do in the wet. This is why I gave the 4 star rating instead of 5 – haven’t tested in the rain – YET!
