Best Tire for a BMW RT

Rtcoker - November 4, 2019

After putting over 175,000 miles on two different BMW RT's I have run the gamut of various tires. Usually with other brands I was lucky to get much more than 3,000 miles out of a set. The other "M" brand was a good rain/sport/touring tire, but wore out quickly. I switched to Michelin Pilot Roads with the 2, then the 3, and got similar experience, but better traction and more even wear without the "shouldering" at the junction of the hard and soft zones, like other tires created. Finally the 4's came out and i am consistently getting over 8,000 miles from a set. Often i have changed them out during mid trip, at 9,000 with plenty of life left, but had to honor the scheduled appointment for the change. I use the GT's. Much better than the standard 4's BTW. Can't wait to see when the 5's come out with the GT to test them out. But for now, i won't use any other tire. FWIW I have plugged two different rear tires mid trip and the plug held fine, for another 2,000 and 3,200 miles (respectively) over a few weeks to complete a trip. That's quite a statement in and of its own. Also, they are almost always perfectly balanced. Hardly ever have to change weights (which balance a wheel, not the tire) the tires never vibrate, even well above 125 MPH. Handling and great leaning angles and no slipping or sliding under trail braking during a lean. Living in the Smokies, i ride a lot of great mountain roads, like the Dragon and these perform almost as great as a track tire, but also get me back home after those mountain thunderstorms. Great tires!

My Reborn Honda ST1300

Rooster - September 7, 2019

These Road Pilot 4GT's are without a doubt the best preforming tires I've road on...incredible handling on my '07 Honda ST1300..I was putting Dunlop Roadmasters on in the past..series l..ll...& lll's..I couldn't get decent mileage of them & left side on front always worn more..I was told by a Dunlop Rep that they are aware of the ST1300's short Roadmaster tire life & say it's the heaviest Sport Tour bike out there so it is what it is..got about 5200 miles out the last set..nevrer more that 7K & decided to make a change to RP 4GT's..so far 2100 miles & no sign of real wear riding on tough Colorado/Wyoming/South Dakota Black Hills roads that have high grit & high crowns which can wear that left side out quick..My ST1300 was reborn with these RP 4GT's & a new confidence in pushing my riding a bit more in the mountain twistie's...Thanks Michelin for a excellent tire for my ST1300!!!

2nd set / no improvement for my BMW1600GTL

Richie - August 16, 2019

I’ve been a Michelin guy for over 25 years. A little pricey but, I loved the way they handle. I have nothing but Michelin’s on all of my 6 motorcycles. I put a set of the Pilot Road 4 GT’s on my 2012 BMW K1600GTL and after about 2500 miles the front had cupping and the rear had the flat spot down the middle. I figured this was a fluke or possibly defective tires. Seeing that I’m a Michelin guy, I decided to purchase another set and give them another shot. So after about 2700 miles on the new set of tires....the same phenomenon. I followed the proper air pressure and load for the tires (for both sets). Yes, I was disappointed that this tire is not for my GTL1600. I’m in the process of switching to a different tire manufacturer for my GTL. I’m hoping that Michelin resolves this issue so I can come back as a loyal customer. Oh, and no the Pilot Road 5GT is not available for my GTL1600. I do have a set of the Pilot Road 5GT’s on my 2002 Suzuki Bandit 1200 with no issues.
