Comments about Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT Motorcycle Tire:
Went to the MotoGP Qualifying in Indy and had the MPR4GT tires put on at a dealer near the track. Proceeded to ride to Bloomington, IN afterward to stay the night with no problems, easy riding. The next day rode the back roads of Southern Indiana all the way to Louisville, KY in light to very heavy rain, went through dirty water running across the road, and took the wet curvy roads with no problem at all. I did not feel a loss of grip at any time, my Yamaha FZ6 turned into curves smoother than the Dunlop's it replaced,and noticed much improved balance at low speed and coming to a stop. Rode five hours of highway driving to get back home with some rain and no issues at highway speeds. The only thing I noticed was at a hard breaking stop, the front tire seemed to have a little give to it but stopping distance was good so was not concerned at all just felt different. I'll review again when it's time to change tires!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Review after 3000 miles
from Houston, TX
Have not yet tried in wet weather since it hasn't rained in the last 2 months, therefore cannot attest to its quality under those circumstances. Unfortunately I won't be able to review long term on the rear tire since I got a screw punctured it. I replaced it with the PR4 to match wear with the front as the GT is supposed to get 2500-3000 more miles out of them. High speed and cornering was very stable. Front tire doesn't show any wear yet and is so much more quiet than the OE Battle axe. So for what I do( sport touring) it is great. I do not do track.
Michelin PRs -- The Sure Thing
Chose these tires based on good reviews elswhere and friend's recommendation. This is my first set of Michelins and I am NOT dissapointed! Honda ST1100 wheel size required a slight "mix" with PR4GT rear, PR3 front due to 18" PR4 front unavailable, no issues. Both tires arrived within 2-3 days and were less than 5mos old -- very fresh compared to local shop's inventory. Smooth, predictable turn in, though not quite as fast to do so as the Avon's they replaced (PR4GT rear is 10mm wider). Grippy right out of the box, too! Assuming they last long, age well & wear predictably, these will be my new go-to tires -- no reason to look elsewhere!
