    Anyone else running Michellin Pilot Road 6GT?

    I have a set of Michelin Pilot Road 6GT on the Trophy, only a few hundred miles ridden but noticing some vibes through right grip with front 36psi (rear 42psi). Going to monitor for more miles, but curious if anyone else is running these tires and what your experience is so far over what number of miles.

    The dealer balanced with rim weights, I have used balancing beads previously. I have not had vibe issues with beads but have had vibes with weights (on different bikes/tires). If the vibes persist I will take the weights off and drop on beads instead.

    I have them front and back.  No issues, but still new....

    Put a set of these on mine in March of this year; 4K miles so far since then with no issues.  Running 40psi front and rear.

    Well, now I know, the Road 6GT are very good on the wet.
