    Michelin Road 5 GT

    Wow, great turn in, smooth, quiet ..... oh wait, they're brand new. They better be all of that. I'll report back in a couple of thousand miles.

    BTW, it was 28º F this morning with fog when we left to go to Eurosport BMW in Asheville, NC. Not all of this is water.

          Mani has the correct numbers per BMW. 2-up we run 38/44. We can feather the rear tire pretty good at 42.

        Been using mine since Spring.

        Still have chicken strips that are slippery as hell in slow speed lean overs!

        Not riding aggressively at speed these days.

        Maybe some sand paper???

            Put some on my 2007 KGT back in May. Have probably 2500 miles on them. Most recently rode from Cape Cod down to northern Georgia via the coast. I don’t push hard so I can’t comment on their track type riding characteristics but happy with the wet and dry performance. Been on Michelin 2, 3, 4 and now 5’s for the last bunch of years and am happy with performance and durability.

              I agree. I've tried the 2, 3, 4 and now 5. Have liked them all.
