    Michelin Road 5

    Thanks Duc, That certainly helps, a bit off topic, but while I may be leaning to grab a set (maybe 2) of the Dunlop Roadsmart 3's, if money was no object, I would go for the Road 5's. I run Michelin tires on all my cars/SUV's, and I really trust their R&D, how are they so good? (Hint: because they invested heavily in Formula 1, destroyed Bridgestone, and pulled out of the sport when they were asked to create tires that purposely have bad tire wear to improve the sport; that's my take anyways). All that they learned now trickle down to consumer stuff like MC and SUV tires. Grip just like the rest of the competition, but also damn durable like no other. PS. I hope my garage steers clear of yours, but I also have a lifted SUV and a few red rockets..

    St Stephen, that's an A+ follow up. Thank you for that. I've been flip-flopping between the Michelin Road 5 or Dunlop Roadsmart 3's the past few days for my 2001 vfr800, but am likely going with the Roadsmart 3's purely because they end up almost $200 cheaper for a set.$480 vs $350(actually, 275 after $75 rebate; local bagged milk canadian dollars)FWIW, nothing but great testimonies for the new Road 5's in the vfr world, and yes, I've read damn near all of them.If I commuted, I may have gone with the Road 5's, but at this price point, I could do nearly two sets for the price of one.

    For those that went with the new Road 5's, how do they feel for wear and confidence now that you have had a few weeks/months of ownership?Not too far off topic, anyone move onto the Michelin Road 5's from Roadsmart 3's or similar?

    Updated impressions? Still the best thing since sliced bread for those of us with street duty machines? From the other thread on this forum: "Mate has just fitted a 5 to the front of his today. He is a d/r in London with regular runs up the country, so clocks up a good few miles. So far he rates them way above. Pr4 which he thought were crap esp on wear and handled wires the more worn they got."
