I have ME880s on my VN900 and have over 13k miles on them with 4 rear/3 ft mm of tread remaining. I go 250 lb. The TBird is about 150 heavier than the VN900 so I expect to get good mileage out of these tires. For me the trick is to run them at Metzeler recommended tire pressure, i.e. 42 rear/ 40 ft.
