Okay, just got home. Almost two weeks in all sorts of conditions. The Michelin Road 5s did make the entire 5000 mile trip.
As the trip went our opinion of the Road 5s changed somewhat. I will post up some pics and better numbers soon.
Day 1: I really like these tires!
Day 2: I still like these tires.
Day 3: My tires are wearing funny.
Day 4: Are these tires supposed to look like this?
Day 5: I sure hope this front tire lasts the entire trip.
Day 6: My front tire is vibrating the entire bike.
Day 7: I am not really liking these tires anymore.
At the end of the trip: These Road5s suck. They never stopped gripping but they look awful, feel awful and the front wears much too quickly.
If/When Michelin gives us a Road 5 GT I may reconsider but as of now I will be going back to the PR4GT or possibly the Pirelli Angel GT.
Never run out of ideas, traction, and real estate at the same time.
