Unfortunately your poll doesn't include the Michelin Pilot Road 3 or Pilot Road 4GT. I've been running those for over 60K miles now on my Trophy after the Angel STs wore out. I've been very happy with them.

That would be "another brand".  There's a poll limit of five. But how many miles do you get on a pair of those Pilot Roads? And what did you get on the stock tires?

I voted for "other brand."  I replaced the stock Pirelli's with PR4 GT's at 6700 miles. The Michelins provide great "stick" dry or wet. Can't attest to the mileage yet but they are a definite improvement over the Pirelli's.

Same with me, Michelin PR3...Great tyres for Trophy. In Finland Police is using only these with their fast touring bikes.

Amazed you didn't have theMichelin PR4 as a main choice as it would appear to be the preferred replacement from most of the tyre discussions we have had in here. Certainly what I went with and they are great!

I wasn't reading tire threads until it started to look like I need new ones myself. I copied that list from page 173 of the USA Owner's Manual "Approved Road Tires" for the TTSE.  I added the Avon's because of some comments in this forum.

I just found I could edit the poll and add more selections. Because of the "other" listings were so high, which probably included mostly the PR4's, I reset all to zero votes. So can everybody please vote again?
