I have the Road 5s on my Concours and they are great. I had Road 4GTs last set and they were very good also. I have a Power RS on the front of the Busa now and will soon be putting a Power RS on the rear.

So, the new tire is on. The rear tire had only one spot showing the white cord you see in the picture below. The old tire weighed in at 10 lbs with no overall loss of total contact surface area. Official dimensions of the old tire was 10lbs and 9" across. It lost 3.6 lbs of rubber in 14k miles.

In closing out my final review of the tires, they have more than paid for themselves. Again, this set was tested for longevity and overall wear to show it's full capability. Next pair will be swapped out sooner.

Dont hesitate to pick up a pair of these for your next set.
