For those of you running Michelin Road 5s,  what pressures do you run front and rear?

(I am about 250 pounds kitted out.)

Thanks!

Not running Road 5's but I run 35 to 36 in the front and 38 in the rear. I'm 250 AGATT and use the same pressure when touring with side bags and a 40 liter top case. Hope this helps.

Besides, no matter how much stonk my engine has I'm still an old, slow guy. Takes more than horsepower to fix that.

I run that exact same pressure in both sport or sport/touring tires.

Thanks guys.

I ran 37/34 yesterday on a 230 mile scrub in ride and they felt fine.  I'll up pressure a bit and see how they go.

Very predictable at good lean and solid in high speed sweepers.

But, they seem a bit noisy compared to the OEMs I replaced. Maybe all those sipes?
