Where can I find Pilot road 3's

Does anyone know where I can get Pilot Road 3's? Every place I have tried is out of stock and cant get stock from Michelin or even give me a date.

Motorcycle Superstore

I called Motorcycle Superstore on Tuesday, and had the Pilot 3's in my office on Friday. Approximately $280. free shipping no tax-thought it was a very good deal. Good luck

They're open today. I just ordered mine from Motorcycle Superstore and it will be here the 19th. I suggest you get the V-Rated trail version which is SKU#316987 . On their web site it just says 150/70R/17. Two of my friends didn't listen to me last year and both of them did not have as good luck as me. I got better mileage with no issues. One of them had severe cupping and the other had cords show through only on the left side. Here's the thread that made me decide on the V rating. Michelin Pilot Road III The difference is 10% 80% 10% on the V-rating and 40% 20% 40% on the z-rating. The V has much more medium rubber than soft compared to the Z.

Still breaking mine in, but at about 200 miles they ride like butter compared to the Tourance rear and Presta Detour front they replaced.

Just a note that the non-Trail version has a W speed rating. The ZR means a zero angle radial cord pattern. Don't exceed 168 mph on the W. The V doesn't want to be run over 149 mph (and the fronts are only V's).

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."

They only have the trail version

I bought mine at shophms.com $270 delivered. Great people to work with. The web site had a glitch when i was ordering, and they handled it on the phone perfectly. The communication was great.

By the way, PR3's let me ride in the rain like the road is dry. No other tire i've used on any bike is this stable in the wet. I only have about 5,000miles on the set, the rear is a little square. 3,400 of those miles were to NS and back to Cleveland though, fully loaded and not too much twisty riding. I'll buy again for sure.
