I removed Pilot Power 2CT's from my 09 Street Triple and put on a set of Pilot Road 3s for my long trip. 3623 miles later with 2500 of those miles in the mountains of NC, TN, GA, VA, KY, and WV...they performed very well and much better than I expected. The steering was notably lazier on turn in, but once you were heeled over they gave great feedback and grip even loaded up with my traveling gear. Front looks almost new and rear has a bit of a flat spot starting to show due to flat, straight roads in Michigan and western ohio.
Wet grip was very good and dry grip was more than enough to ride very quickly each day. I don't like the front only due to the way it tips in and makes the bike feel heavy...but it performed just fine. I could do a trackday on these in intermediate class no problem and be very quick. In the end...for trips I like them...for hooning around I'll stick to sporty rubber.
