Got Michelin Pilot Road 2 on my CBF.







I like the tyres but they take 3+ miles before they warm up properly, the bike can be a bit slippery for the first few miles in cold, wet weather.   :190:
Soichiro Honda, I salute you.

I use Bridgestone T31 tyres om my Mk2. I think they suit the bike ,I've done 6000 miles on mine and there's still a bit of wear in them. I use the bike mainly for weekends away and a 2 week holiday every year two up.

Currently on Avon Storm 3D X-M fitted last year, for 150 quid.

Prior to that I had Pilot 4's on, which just as Rev Ken says, scalloped on the front, and was squaring off on the rear after about 4000 miles.

in GR we prefer sport tires because the asphalt is a mess, the st tires are slipping out

BT016 Pro are a common replacement, vfm low budget tire and runs well for the most of the uses
you rise, you fall, you're down, then you rise again

Michelin Pilot Road 5.
I have been using them for about a year, and in my opinion they are bettter than original bridgestones i had previously.

Great tyre, but they scallop quite easily on the front tyre. PR4s, better wear patterns and even better in the wet.
'5's so far outstanding. lighter steering, best wet weather grip of any tyre I've ever ridden. I THINK I will get a longer life and they aren't 'flatting' so far.

Not currently doing much mileage but will definitely use the latest PRs when mine are worn out  :028:

Mitas Sportforce cheap and very cheerful !  Quite soft and quick steering only used for Sunday playing so can't say much about ware rates.
