Do it. Best tires I have ever put on a motorcycle. Great in the wet, grippy, yet don't wear out fast.
The set I have, I put on last July. Rode from Ottawa ON to Eureka CA via the Badlands, Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone, and Crater Lake. Up the Pacific coast to Vancouver Island, then across the Canadian Prairies back to Ottawa. Then my regular 400km round trip weekly commute in late Aug and Sept into Oct, a trip to the Adirondaks, and commute again May-June. That's probably more than 20,000km. I'm just starting to think about replacing the rear as the tread is into the wear bars in the center. I think I'll get a couple more weeks of commuting, and one more Adirondak trip before replacing the rear. The front has lots of tread left, isn't cupped, and doesn't need replacing yet. Am I finally going to get the 2:1 rear to front that people talk about with tires?
After years of getting 5,000 really nice kms out of a set of Bridgestones, followed by another 10,000km wondering why I keep buying crappy tires, the PR4's are worth it.
