Why is this the right tyre for me?

Excellent SPORT touring Tire

Wolf - November 29, 2020

I am on my 3rd set on my Kawasaki ZX14. I have run Michelin Road tires since they were called Macadams back in the early 2000s. I have run Pilot Roads 2,3,4 and now the Road 5. That said, I run the 190/55 in the back as opposed to the OEM size of 190/50. I also do not run the "normal" ZX14 tire pressure of 42/42psi. I do a lot of backroads so about half curves and half straight aways. I now run 36/34 alone and when I have a passenger 38/36. I just replaced the last set and they wore completely even. I especially like the solid rubber sides of the Road 5 as they really give me good predicable grip in the corners. My ZX14 is set up with Corbin seat and saddlebags (Beetlebags) and I usually ride with a pillion on board. I wish Michelin made the Road 5 GT version in a 190/55.

Best wet road tyre

Julien - November 12, 2020

The wet grip is phenomenal. Lasts forever as well, easily passing the 10,000km mark even for sport bikes. Recommended!

Edge grip

ST cruisin - October 29, 2020

ST1100, didn’t think I’d been cornering hard whilst cruising but got home to find wear was within 1-2mm of the edge. Confidence. Slight cupping starting. Maybe pressure low while 2up.
