Run these on my zx10r and my gsxr 1100. I've tried a good number of tires in the last 30 years and for the last 3 almost 4 I swear by these. Great for the horrible roads and weather of alaska

Road 5s ran 15000 miles on cb500f

Reviewed by Sparky - September 17, 2022 for a purchase of November 19, 2020

After 15,000 miles there was still tread but the rubber was done. Maybe the tire could stand to be a bit softer for our lighter bikes likes the cb500f.

Hi Nolan. Thanks for your feedback on MICHELIN Road 5 tires. To be clear, the carcass of the tire is the primary factor that delivers handling characteristics based on the weight of a motorcycle. We offer MICHELIN Road 5 tires in a standard version, which offers superb handling for a wide range of sport, sport touring and roadster type bikes, and a GT version with an extra bias belt ply for heavier sport touring motorcycles. The tread compound directly affects grip and longevity. A softer compound would offer more grip but wear out much faster. Thanks again for choosing Michelin! We wish you long and safe rides.
