Do I really need a "B" spec rear tire???
Time for new rubber.. I'm going to buy a set of the new Michelin Pilot Road 3. They have a "B" spec rear which they say is for lot's of two up riding and loaded touring.. I don't do either of these things. Solo 100% of the time and when I tour I don't load the crap out of the bike, maybe 35lbs of stuff if that. I have Pilot Road 2 on the bike now with a non "B" rear and I've had no issues. From what I understand the "B" has an extra ply, that's it. The non "B" has the same weight rating and same tread depth. Bike is a 2008 K12GT; thoughts, opinions..
