Pilot Road 3 (Trail)
on: May 21, 2013, 04:17:22 PM
After some research, and checking out other CT's, I went to the dealers today and ordered some new tyres - Michelin Pilot Road 3 Trail. €300, including fitting.

After 6300km, the Pirelli Scorpions are almost done - another 500kms and it's time for new boots!

Anakee 3's not available for the CT yet in Germany (Approvals)  :003:

Good set of tyres Doc. Dunlop TR91 is what I'll get this summer. 17 days since I got mine with Battlewings and I'm at 2800 kms already  :001:

I managed another 200km today through Holland to my dealers (The Long Way Around) to 'wear away' the Scorpions - I don't want to give good rubber away  :007:

I'm already on a PR3 (trail) front and PR2 rear and just about to replace the part worn PR2 with a PR3 (trail) rear for the Alps trip in June.

I would never embark on a long trip with a part worn rear tyre as i have seen so many chaps having to cut short a tour or miss a day and pay over the odds for an emergency replacement due to beginning a trip on a tyre thats already got 2 or 3 thousand miles on it. I'll keep the PR2 tyre that comes off as it has a couple of thousand miles left on it and re-fit it sometime in the future.

Nice Doc,
I saw these at my tyre dealer over the Christmas, they look quality and are specifically aimed for our CT and similar Adv's. He wanted £235 stg to take away, so €300 fitted seems about right. I  think they are dual compound so should last longer. Must read up on them.

How you getting on with the PR3's Doc?
I love them!
So much feel especially in the wet, smooths out the ride too.
I couldn't recommend them highly enough, you are going to Love them had them on my Hayabusa for a couple of years now.
