Just installed the new Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires on my 2013 BMW R1200RT. I only have 238 miles on them so I've taken it easy to get them scrubbed-in, but what little experience I have with them, I like. I had over 11,000 on my stock OEM Metzler tires and liked them, but I'm looking for an improved rain handling tire. These Michelin tires are suppose to give a 17% better stopping power in the rain so we'll see how they work. I'll provide a long term usage report this summer.
