Pilot Power RAVE thread.

This is the official thread to discuss the Pilot Power...the only choice in motorcycle tire, if you ask me.

Before today I had only 75 miles on mine...which was one shake down ride after the install. Tonite I put another 20. Nothing crazy...just some back roads on a quick trip to Walmart.

Well after 95 miles I want nothing to do with any other tire. These Powers are super responsive and tremendously sticky. They give great traction feed back and turn in is effortless.

I absolutely love these tires.

Anyone else?

I pulled the stock tires off my 01 F4I after 350 miles after riding my buddies with pilots and I have never ridden a single mile on anything else and untill something proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are better I never will!!!

Hands down best tire on the market! Absolutley love them, there wouldn't be anything else on my bike. I have less then a 1/4 inch to finish off my chicken line, I'm going on a long run today so there is no doubt I'll finish it off today and with total confidence. 91 degrees sun beating down on the black top with these sticky @ss tires, IT"S ON!
