Ok guys, thanks for the heart starter!! I can relax a little now.
I started reading the posts and was reading 8k, 7.5k, 9k, etc as the average distance or a rear tyre. I started thinking, I am riding like an old woman as my tyres make at least 12.5k. I thought you guys were riding like maniacs o wear your tyres down so quickly, especially at 7.5k!!
Then I started to weigh up the costs of tyres I'll be spending throughout the year. I panicked as 8k average distance would cost me a fortune in tyres at $400 a pop (Australia). (i can get my Vespa a new tyre at $55 including fitted!!)
However as I read further, I then realised you were speaking in MILES... Not kilometers!!! Thank f@&k for that!!
Thankfully I'm on par with the rest of you guys and the "riding like an old woman" status can be passed onto someone else!
Vespa to the Storm!
So, I am looking at replacing my rear tire in the near future (again)... this will be the fourth tire on the bike.
