    Thinking about Michelin PR3 as replacements on my Norge

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for input, positive and negative, about Pilot Road 3's on any bike similar to mine. I ride most of the time solo with light loads (laptop, change of clothes and raingear). 3 or 4 times a year I load up for a long weekend but no camping or overloading the bike. I'm 230lbs and my wife (the only passenger I have) is about 130.
    She only rides to dinner or the beach for a beer, not on the trips where I have luggage.

    Riding style is mature with flights of ocasional childishness but for the most part restraint is maintained. Most riding is around the lower mainland. Trips are mostly to the Okanagan, Kootenays or Vancouver Island.

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts

    I don't see what kind of bike you have???

    Anyways, it sounds to me like the PR3 would be fine. Tires like these give up some outright grip for better performance in the rain and longer wear.

    I've been running PR3's since last April. Lots of runs to Pemberton, a run to N.California in September. CBR1100. Three Givi hard bags that I leave on all the time. An occasional day run with my wife. I recommend them. Good grip and good in the rain. I might get another season out of them depending on the long range plans.

    Last season I ran 10K on PR3s. When I took them off they still had lots of life left on them. I did track days and touring rides with them. Well worth the buy and great life for the money you pay. These tires feel SOLID on the road, even in the rain.

    Truncated post heading on the phone, I guess. haha.

    Looks like a nice bike--I suspect I'll own a Guzzi at some point.

    How long have you had the Norge and how do you like it?

    I like PR2's better. They feel better on the dry - are still great in the wet (not a great), and last longer. I've gone back.

    FJarrrrrrr!
    Not a lot of decent street tires for the Strom, and these PR3's are a real treat for me, have about
    1000kms on them now, and they feel excellent......time will tell, everything feels great when new.
