As a follow up to my previous thread on the New Pilot Road II's, I would just like to say that I believe them to be an excellent tire. I have had bad cupping on my past pilot roads which were on my K1200RS. I would get approximately 6000 to 7000 on the front and a little more on the back. My wife and I ride two up often. I'm here to say that I am very impressed with the new II's. After going out west to Gillette and running around home plus a few 400 mile trips, I'm here to say that they are fantastic. I big improvement over the old PR's. The wear pattern is great and I should get many more miles on a set and still have ample tread. Just my opinion but these are the best tires I have ever had on any of my bikes.
