Michelin Pilot Road 3 tires

Don't know if anyone had seen, but Michelin recently introduced the Pilot Road 3 street tire. I was a fan of both the PR1's and PR2's and had a pair of both.

Please find article here.

Yeah, that’s a statistic sample size of 1, category “anecdotal evidence”, but there it is.

Michelin or Bridgestone.

I don't get the deja vu comment. Was there already a thread on this?

Anyway, I'm not surprised. With the PS3 replacing the PS2, it just makes sense they'd have a PR3 come along.

I imagine that's what I'll get when it's time to replace mine (already had to replace the stock rear because of a nail, and got the PR2).

He & I were discussing this very topic on another forum earlier that same day...

Rick, how do I expand the avatar pics, or can I? I can't read Skeez's sign!

Unfortunately you can't. The only way to read his avatar is to PM him & ask him to send you the original, or a link to where he got it from.

Thanks, not important, just wondering. Sorry, back to the tires. I love
my PR 2, so far. What's the price like on the new PR 3?

looking at a couple of different sites it appears the smallest rear tire right now is a 170/60. I believe stock is 160/60. Do you think there would be any clearence issues? looking at the swing arm and exhaust it would have to be very tight.

I can't answer that. But, if I was buying just now, I'd look for sales on the PR2s. I think Motorcycle Superstore is discounting them. Wear them out and then get a reasonable price on the PR3s after they've been out for a bit. And then wear those out because it's just too much damn fun!

Those are strange looking, what's the concept?

I really like the looks of them, not that it matters. I just put a set of PR2s on mine before I parked it for the winter.
