Pilot road 3's after 6k miles

Just felt like sharing some pics I just took after admiring the shape and tread of my pr3's. I have a vee k6 with PCiii and 2Bros. I ride 20 miles r/t to work in dc rush hour m-f, 300-500 miles nearly each weekend in the VA/WV mountains (fairly aggressively), and have a 2500 mile smoky mtn camping trip. I feel confident in wet and dry weather, and great grip while scraping the pegs. Great tires IMHO.

2600 miles on my PR3's so far - awesome tyres. They are probably the best rubber available for the DL's wheel sizes.. I find myself adopting exactly the same riding style in the wet as in the dry, they are that good. A British motorcycle magazine really rated them highly stating that they were 'knee down in the wet' good

Too bad Michelin can't get the v/z rating thing cleared up. What tires did you end up getting ? The radial on back and the non on the front?

Oh, almost forgot that I rode through tropical storm byrna and heavy heavy wind and rain. Smart idea? Perhaps not. But the tires gave me absolutely no concern.

Oh, and crossed over 2 sets of mountains on big rocks and gravel. Was I in first gear for over 2 hours and abusing my clutch? You betcha!
