  1. I have had the Road 5 tires on my BMW R1200RT since August 2018. They are amazing. The grip when going through the twistys is remarkable and inspires great confidence. I got caught in a sudden downpour on a two laner and I did not notice any slipage. My RT is older and does not have traction control or driving modes, but at no time did I feel threatened in the rain. I had Road 4s before these and the Road 5s are a great upgrade. They seem to be wearing very well and with about 5K mikes on them, they still look new..
