Great tires
I have a modified 2000 Suzuki Bandit and just returned from a trip down to the Smokies area. I put 900 miles on these PR5's and couldn't be happier with my choice. I used the whole tire (no chicken strips left). The traction cornering and braking was superb. I haven't ridden any wet roads yet but expect they will work great there too. My past experience with traction and longevity of PR2's led me to this purchase. I considered Dunlop Q3's (great tires) but wanted a tire that lasts more than a season.

200 Miles in!
Well, I reckon any new tires will feel great after replacing OEMs with 8,100 miles on them! So far, these tires have quick turn in, and they allow confident point & shoot. They're softer than the OEM Dunlops and contribute a smoother ride to the crappy potholed roads around DC. No complaints and they have a good reputation. They might deserve five stars, but I haven't had them long enough to be certain

Smooth Operator!
These Michelin Road 5 motorcycle tires made my 2015 Suzuki GSXS 750 100% better than the O.E.M tires. I now ride with the ultimate confidence that all riders should. Smooth...I mean silky smooth...great grip and so far no wear at all. You can't go wrong with these grippers!

Michelin Road 5 Motorcycle Tires
I recently purchased a set of Michelin Road 5 Tires for my Honda CB 600F which had a set of five year old Continentals on it. They were in very good shape because I don't ride hard and the bike is always kept indoors. Always had them checked by my bike mechanic Brian Davis of ESG Kustoms in Mcallen, Texas.

I found the best price at Bike Bandit and spoke with a gentleman named Travis who was very knowledgeable and helpful. I had originally opted for MIchelin Pilot Road 4s but since these were a much better tire and only eleven dollars more decided to go with them.

At first I could tell no difference from the Continentals but within a hundred miles or so, their superiority became apparent. They hold the road extremely well, the ride improves every time I take the bike out, cornering is a non-issue, and high speed (100 mph plus) presents no problem at all.

I would highly recommend this tire to anyone. I chose them for safety and performance and they meet and exceed my expectations.

Great tire
These tire are so perfectly balanced that after balancing the rims no weight were needed after mounting the tires. No specific mounting alignment was used on either tire.

Reading different reviews...most say these are the best sport touring tires on the market.
Johnny L on Mar 10, 2018
I've been very happy with Michelin Pilot Road 2's in the past. The Road 4's have a very good reputation. The initial reviews on the Road 5's seem pretty good. I want a tire designed for wet/dry traction. Michelin's also wear well, last a long time and provide plenty of grip.
Ronald V on Feb 22, 2018
Because Michelin is the best
Alex R on Feb 11, 2018
The Road 5 has a new tread pattern that looks like it will maybe eliminate the scalloping issues of the Road 4 when used in the rear on a high performance sport bike. These Road series tires stick as well as most sport tires with about twice the wear difference. I use a Road series rear and any sport front like a Q3 or S21. The Road series is fine on the front too, and would be a better choice if riding in rain.
Steve E on Jan 29, 2018
I currently have pilot 3 on my busa and have been absolutely pleased with their performance. Looking forward to trying these new tires out.
S P on Jan 21, 2018
New wet weather compound on top of the reliability of the Road 4, what could be better, and they are on sale.
SteveR on Jan 21, 2018
Pilot road series is the best series tire hands down no matter how you ride or where you ride. unbeatable!

Gerb on Mar 26, 2018
The pilot road 4 had a stiffer sidewall option available for heavier sport tourers like the FJR. Does the Road 5 come in two versions also?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2018
