I've currently got 5300 miles on these Road 6's & they are a big difference over the road 5's big time..BIG TIME confidence in the rain & the twisties! I've got a good amount of tread life left but my riding season is over here in northern Illinois. I'll wind up ordering a new set over the winter (as I always do) & have them put on in the spring since I don't wanna change out tires while on the road come summer 2024 once I hit the road. This is gotta be my 5th or 6th Michelin tire on this bike & they've all been great except for maybe mileage but these Road 6's have conquered that!! The Honda ST1300 is known to be the heaviest Sport/Touring bike on the road so I take that into consideration on mileage in the past.

I went on a 2,000 mile road trip around Colorado and Utah with 3 friends - all of us in road 6s. We all thought the 6s were an excellent tire in the dry. But where this tire really shines is in the wet. In a steady rain, over multiple mountain passes with temps from the 40s to the 70s - these tires were predictable, grippy and confidence inspiring. If these tires last as long as claimed, I would have found a new favorite.

Great tires - particularly in the wet

I replaced the OEM Continentals on my 2021 R 1250 GS. The rear is at the wear bars with

Great tire, but still wears quickly
