Given 85% while driving a Yamaha 2002 R6 (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 12,500 spirited miles
These were stock on my 02 R6 and 05 Ducati 749 which I had from new. They performed well on both bikes although I had to throw them at less than 3000m miles on the Ducati as it didn't handle at all well once tires have done much over 2000 miles on both front and rear.
They were on the R6 for 5000 miles, they worked well in all conditions even when the rear was illegal. The front went onto an old CBR600 and worked well on that too, it also got a rear to match.
The Ducati was always run on the Michelin rears as they were a great all rounder but a Dunlop D207RR was better on the front and lasted as long.
The Pilot Power is essentially the same but with more feel and a bit more grip and is the tire I now use most of the time on my bikes.

Given 67% while driving a Triumph Trident 900 (160/60 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 8,600 average miles
I ended up with this front tyre to replace my old Michelin Macadam which is no longer produced, it turns out that this is a sports tyre with a softer compound this can be noticed with a quicker warm up time for the tyre and how dampness melted away on a wet day.

The grip for this tyre is good considering it didn't have much tread and wet handling was predictable, a good instance of this was going around a bend cranked over and passing over a stream of water crossing the road; both tyres slid a little over the water and then gripped again on the other side. Dry riding was fine.

I was surprised that it lasted as long as it did at around 8,600 miles but the tyre was always noisy on the road depending on the road surface and can be heard quite clearly.

The tyre wear was mainly contained on the centre of the tread and probably due to braking but caused a taper wear effect on the tread on the leading edges of the tread pattern.

As the tyre tread depth decreased to legal limit then the tyre started to get a bit more vague and gave an uneasy feeling but still gripped fine.

Michelin seem to suit the bike and give a nice neutral handling for my style of riding and doesn't run wide on corners as well as lasting a reasonable length of time. The other tyres recommended are Bridgestones but they didn't last long even with dual compound and ran wide on corners.
