As these tyres live on a a1978 BMW R100S, they not only fit the appearance, but also perform as well as the bike demands.
When I fitted my Road Classics I noticed two things, improved grip around corners and surprisingly a more true (straight line) performance. The tyres worked so well I also installed them on my wife's Triumph Bonneville
I have the Michelin road classic tyre on my 2005 Triumph bonneville t100 and love them, so much grip and have lots of confidence on them.
After wearing three sets of the no longer available pilot activ model, I felt confident buying the new improved road classics. I've been happy with street and mountain road performance, they hold the road well. However, this new tire did not perform as well as my Pilot Activs for local CA grooved freeway riding. After 1K miles, the squirrely front end feeling which this tire displays when ridden on grooved freeway pavement has me ready to trade the front tire for the new continental. This 100/90/19 Road Classic will soon be removed as the front tire for my 1983 BMW R100
I swapped to these after the factory Pirelli wore out very fast, had multiple punctures were just... adequate... Since then I've been loving these tyres. Comfortable, great cornering and long lasting. So good I'm going Michelin for my car next time.
