Michelin Road 5's , All I need . Anyone found Road 5GT's ?

I am about to order my second set of Road 5's for the RT. Michelin tells me Road 5 GT is avalable at some distributers in US now. I have not found a retailer selling yet. I'm about 10k on the Road 5's and indicators showing up. 10K miles of great grip . Tire expense about that of Fuel cost I guess..... I get 50-52 MPG I buy online (Bike Bandit last 3 sets for my on and off road bikes ), and about to try to have them match Amazon price (- $12 /set), I hope)and have local Napa Tire shop mount and balance Rims I bring them. Are Road 5 GT's out there ? I'm willing to pony up a few $ for full load ability......

So I was unable to locate Road 5 GT's at any USA Tire Seller. So I ordered a set of Road 5's again. Someone in the UK reported they just got a set of GT's mounted.

Anyone here ever look at Face Book R1200/1250RT Face Book Group? 8K plus Owners, some pretty interesting International flair/photos. Certainty a change of "pace" from here.
Seemed to be some interest there. Thanks for all the help.

I am on that FB page and the Road5 GT have just become available.
I could not find them here so I went back for a set of 4GT for the time being.
