My wife disagrees but I say the most important thing on a motorcycle are sticky tires.

She says don't get the cheapest out there, but something good. Think on a 1 to 10 scale 1 being cheap and 10 being expensive. She says get a 6 or 7.

I say get a 10.

To her credit, she is keeping how long they last in mind, she says try getting some tires that I can get more miles out of. She is correct in saying I will never even approach the limits of the tires I have in mind.

This is when I take the stance that if I treat them well and just ride them as I would any street tire, I should get decent mileage out of them.


I have read nothing but good reviews on the Michelin Pilot/power pros. A lot of people say they are only good for a few thousand, some say you may get 10k or more out of a set. I dunno who to believe.

Is this a really great tire? What kind of mileage could I expect?

Is it overkill and should I be considering other less expensive brands?
