Michelin Pilot Road 3
#4 in the series is coming out soon. Michelin Pilot Roads are the only tires I've chosen to buy again.

Another satisfied Michelin Pilot Road 3 rider here. I did some cornering training on a track in heavy rain, and the PR3 felt like they were on rails--steady and secure.

The Pilot Road 4 sounds interesting. I don't know why they developed the improved tire so soon after the PR3. The GT version is a stouter carcass for heavier bikes and will be standard on the BMW R 1200 RT. The Trail version again sounds like it hits the sweet spot for our bikes for on-pavement riders (and my PR3s are OK on firm gravel).
