Well it was time . i had 19,000 km on my Michelin pilot road 2 tires . just getting a new set of Michelin road 3's on the bike , the reviews are awesome and i am looking for all the handling i had with expecting more that 19,000 km on this new set . Of course i am installing www.ride-on.com in the tires as well . I rode Through Sturgis and to Winnipeg and back to home on the road 2's . I am looking forward to this new set !!
