Yamaha TDM 900 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Road 3 given 79% (160-60-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 spirited miles
I bought the pilot road 3 as a progression from having PR2s on, which were ok. I've had them on now for ~6000 miles and they are down to the wear bars in most places. I have found them grippy when cornering giving me good feed back and rarely letting go in any way. However, stopping has been a nightmare. This is the first set of tyres I've had where I am repeatedly having to wrestle the bike to a stand still under heavy braking. It's mostly the back end letting go. My bike doesn't have abs, but I haven't needed it up until this set of tyres. Yes, I've checked my brakes. They don't snatch and are usually progressive.
This gives me a dilema, do I go for Road 5s or something else.

Driving on a combination of roads for 7000 spirited miles
Got 7000 miles out these,gave good grip in the dry ok in the wet but I don't ride like loon in the wet . Front tyre wore out quicker than the rear with more wear on one side of the tyre than other which did seem a bit strange but can't grumble at 7000 miles
