Just going back to the Michelin R5's, they are an advance on the pilot road 4's. Which I like too, although didn't last as long as the Angel gt which is the most i've ever gotten out of a rear tyre (6k miles) the gt's take longer to warm up and the rear tended to spin up too.
Couple of friends with multistradas have got the road5's fitted and swear by them, 7k miles on one of the rears and still looks fresh!!!
They are a road tyre that is capable on the track and supposed to be excellent in the wet road use. still offering as much grip 50% worn as a new pr4.
I've got a few big trips coming up, so lets see how they do on the hyper for wear.
The PR5's are very good. Not sure if they have really different geometry than my old PR3's, but I feel like I'm getting lean angles equal to or more than I did on those, yet I still have a good 1/4" of chicken strip left on the 5's. The freakishly slippery southern Italian roads have sapped some of my confidence, so maybe I've just gone soft.
