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.
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."
