I had a set put on my K1200RS before going out to Wyoming from Michigan and I was very much impressed. I have always had Pilot Roads on the K but this is the first time for the II's. My other PR's would cup along the sides of the middle tread after about 3 thousand miles. The II's have not even started to show wear after 3500 miles. This is a dual compound tire. They are great in rain as well as through twisties. It is a great wearing tire and the dual compound seems to have solved the wear problems on the standard Pilot Roads. Good job Michelin.
