    Doesn't sound right bill so try other tyre places for a better price same with car tyre's, total motorcycles vic park have been good to me but shop around get some quotes and they will all match one another these days.

    I rang about 5 different places and the road 5 was cheaper at all of them
    Even online prices listed the 5 cheaper than the 4
    Apparently itís a promotion that Michelin are doing from what I was told

    That's cheap for a rear tyre @ $270, last PR I got was $300 f&b from MC Pitstop and most others were slightly more, most wanted $10-15 more for the PR4
