Just put on some Michelin Road Pilot 4's after wearing out the 214's in less than 4,000 miles. After a few days of "break-in" we left for a 2000 mile ride. These are wonderful tires!!! I'm no pro but these tires hold like glue and go like crazy... Even the tar snakes don't do much. The 214's were all over the place in comparison. $312 for the set from MotoSS, delivered. Took about 2 hours to remove, mount and balance, then install though. Hardest part was getting the old tires off the wheels. I looked at the Pirellis, briefly.
