Michelin Pilot Road 3 Just installed

I have to thank all you guys for leading me in the right direction in my hunt for OEM Dunlop tire replacements. I just got the PR3's installed yesterday and I can't believe how much of a difference they make. I loved the V before but now it really handles like it was made to handle. If I had known what I know now I would have dumped the OEM tires long ago. Thanks Guys...

Good to hear. When my stockers have a few more thousand miles on them that is what I'm going to.

I replaced my OEM's with BT023's well before they were due. Have done that with almost every bike I've owned. Makes a big difference for sure.

My PR3's are just what the doctor ordered... New in June before a 5600+ miler in July. I replaced the rear with a new PR3 after the trip - at about 6000 miles because of a puncture that had been plugged in Oklahoma - on my way home... but except for that puncture - my PR3s have served me well.

Havn't used the 3's yet,but if they are anything like the pr2's,they are great tires...I got 9000 miles out of my pr2 rear...I ordered another one,but they sent me a pilot power 2 by mistake...I decided what the heck...I will give it a try....The pp2 does seem to stick and handle better than the pr2 did,but after 3000 miles,I can see it's not going to last near as long as the pr2 did....

PR3's are great tires. Put mine on just over 1000 miles ago. Was so glad to get the dunflops off the bike.
