Careful now Paul, you might ding Echo's recall bell, after all its surely a design flaw that Honda should admit responsibility for.

I'd always GT but that is largely because here I doubt my insurance would cover me with non approved tyres.

PS I only got about 4k out of the last rear T30 GT I had on.

I have over 10K on the rear GT. It looks like there's still a couple thousand left in it.

I'm not sure that the sizes for the ST1300 still come in non-GT versions.

I routinely get 12-14k from a rear PR4 GT. YMMV.

I've run both. PR 4 GT on now. A T-30 GT previous, got about 6600 out of it.
GT's have a much siffer sidewall, I put the tire in the sun for an hour or so before mounting, helps a ton.
I've read in several places that the GT's were designed for heavier machines, and the ST certainly qualifies.

The Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT. Michelin's webside only lists the sizes for the ST1300 in the GT version. The non-GT isn't offered in a 120/70 18" front, or as a 170/60 rear.
