I use the PR-2’s on my Concours 14. They wear very well, handle good and have great wet traction. I think it’s a great street tire for anything but the most aggressive riding on less than ideal surfaces. No chicken strips required.

The Pilot Road 2's are good tires, but lately Michelin has been awful proud of their product.

I've had more than a few riders switch to the new Bridgestone BT021 dual compound rear tire and BT016 dual compound front tire and get the same or better mileage and better traction for a lot less money.

We stock both, at competitive prices.

The c-14 comes with bt021’s installed and I thought they were great handling tires. Better IMO than the pr-2’s, sticky as for street tires. But in my case the pr-2’s lasted literally 3 times longer.

I don’t ride my street bike like I ride my track bike.
Last year I put 1500 miles on my track bike and used several sets of race tires.
I also put over 20k on my street bike, used 2 rears and one and a half fronts.
Pr2’s stick good for a street tire.

A buddy has that setup on his blackbird and it makes sense.

Pilot road on front will still last at least two rears pr2

I have had good luck with PR2 front and back and really like em,
just trying something new/different

all these tirs are is a road in the middle and a power on the outside, so to say that they don't stick as good as pilot powers is kinda dumb. that's the prupose of these tires long life for highway riding and the ability to stick when track/forest riding
