    Michelin Road 5's?

    I'd like to keep the soft, sticky Corsas for the track as I'll surely flatten them on the road (even if I keep and ride it in the mountains :007:).
    I've been very impressed with the Road 5's on the Ninja.  (Especially after those crap stock Bridgestones!)
    Has anyone tried them on their 765/675?

    I can vouch for the Road 5ís. I had a set on my 765 Street Triple for a couple of riding seasons before picking up my Moto2. They were absolutely fantastic and performed very well in the wet.

    Don't rule out the Power 5s either. Tyres are of course 100% subjective, but I do really like the Michelin offerings on the road myself.
    I have Roads on Tracer and Powers on 675. The 765 needs a new rear, so I'll be putting a pair of Powers on in a few weeks.
    Having said all of that, did you get some Roads in the end?
