Great ride and feel safe

Boudin - June 12, 2021

I have used michelins for a long time and ride in all weathers. Road 5's feel great and surefooted, but only getting similar milage to the previous Pilot Road 4's. I would buy again, but will check the price of a pair of 4's first. Both great tyres and I have had 8 sets of them in recent years.

Fouled swinging arm! (2011 BMW K1600GT)

K1600GT owner - June 6, 2021

I am a car/bike examiner for a large road safety charity and use my bike all year round. Having fitted several sets of Road 5 GT tyres to my K1600GT, and really thought they were a great choice, to my surprise when removing the real wheel to fit a new Road 5 yesterday I found the latest rear tyre had fouled/rubbed the swinging arm. This resulted in the tyre having a small melted/abrasion mark on the near-side edge and also the swinging arm paint wearing away -leaving a small ‘polished’ area where the tyre had been rubbing. Disappointing and clearly a safety issue :-( Can Michelin provide any feedback or comment please? On that basis couldn’t recommend to a friend - despite the positive feedback for wet/dry performance etc.

THE tyre for all occasions

Hiswitsend - June 3, 2021

Have preferred these tyres from Road2s onware, have had bikes with S21s, Avon Storms, which are good tyres, but just nothing beats the PR series for all weather grip, confidence, longevity and consistency - well other than newer versions by MIchelin
