Given the times we are in you might have to wait a bit longer! There has not been much of an opportunity to get out on the road in the UK & Ireland of late. Only England are allowing you to travel any distance at the moment.

Fair call XCaTel, will be keen to hear his findings as I am considering the Road 5 Trails when I'm due. Hope things pick up soon and we can all be riding like we used to.

I'm at 3,000 miles on mine and they are just beginning to show signs of wear. The rear has a flat spot just beginning to appear which is similar to the wear shown by the three sets of Anakee 3 tires I was using before I purchased the Pilot Road 5 set last fall. Now that I've moved to the Pacific Northwest from Las Vegas, I feel qualified to comment on their wet weather performance and they have been great! Excellent grip in all conditions as well as mileage equal or better than any other tires I have tried.
