Or you can get the set with the "B" rear.....for the extra 10 or 20 bucks I really like the confidence factor though I have run both "B" and non "B" without troubles....

$301.95 from Southwest Moto with free shipping: Here

'07 GT Sold- 2012 GSA Triple Black - Farkles O'Plenty!

I think I'm diagonally parked in a parallel universe....but I am NOT a Dental Floss Tycoon!

I've got a set of Pilot Road's on now (PR1 on front, PR2 on rear) with ~6K miles. They still have lots of tread left, but both tires have worn into three distinct flat spots edge-center-edge that makes the handling suck. Seriously, it feels like there's an extra hundred pounds tacked onto the bike, and I have to consciously apply arm strength to initiate or maintain a turn.

Every pair of Pilot Roads I've used have done this, too.

Great mileage tire, but I just don't like 'em and I won't run them unless I'm stuck out on the road and they're the only option available.

YMMV.

'13 Dark Graphite Metallic K16GTLD, 24K miles and counting...
'09 Magnesium Beige Metallic K13GT, 60K miles miles and counting...
'02 Mauve Metallic K12LTC, 106K miles and sold
BMWLT#145, IBA# 366, MOA# 111996, SCMA# 24032

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

^^^ What he said, but to tell the truth all my tires seem to get really crappy handling at about 6000 miles and nothing feels as good as new skins on the GT....
