TMO -- Gear review: Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires

One of the reasons I am so dedicated to my motorcycle blog is the simple fact that it gives me things. Or, rather, things are given to me as a result of it. The most obvious example of this is my bike itself. A random Harley dude was impressed with the quality of my writing and offered to get me a bike if I did some copy writing work for him.

Another good example is the set of tires that are now on that bike. Through my blog I got a chance to go up to Michelin headquarters in beautiful Stoke-on-Trent earlier this year and be treated to a day of playing on motorcycles, and eating until I felt I was going to burst, and talking about tires.

Dude, I know so much about tires now. 

They also put a brand new set of Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires on my bike. Needless to say, the whole experience resulted in my being enamoured of Michelin. Is that the right phrasing? I mean to say that I am a Michelin fan boy, but want to state it in a clever way. They're the bee's knees. And I now find when I daydream about the motorcycles that I'd like to own I check first whether Michelin offers tires compatible to that model before committing to the fantasy. 

Anyhoo, I've put just shy of 3,000 miles on my Michelin tires and decided to write a review. Click the link below to read more.
