Went for a great run from Geelong to Colac, Lavers Hill along the Great Ocean Road to Lorne via Apollo Bay. It was another great spring day with a clear blue sky, but just a bit cool at approx 13-15C and probably colder in the hills.

It was Marty’s first run on his new Kawasaki ZX9. His grin in the pic below tells the story!

Is a new tyre blogworthy? Probably not, but this is the first dual compound tyre I’ve had so I will be interested to see how long it lasts and how the grip compares with the Pilot Power that came off. The Power did just just 5,800 klms (approx 3,400 miles) but was without doubt the best I’ve ever had. What I really liked was the way it didn’t square off, even when just about worn out.

Anyway, here are a couple of pics of the Michelin Pilot Road 2 CT rear. I have a Pilot Power single compound on the front. I got a really good deal from Peter at Road & River Motorcycles. They offer friendly service and without a doubt have the best range of tyres at the best prices around here. See Road & River
