Daz I've read enough of your posts to know that you ride much more aggressively than me, especially having the BB 1700 kit now. This is my FIRST bike, so I learned to ride on it - so there are lots of miles that are "sissy" miles and yet at 5,300 I'm into my wear bars on the rear. We do lots of puttering around wine country backroads so I show wear on the full range of my tire side to side, so I'm not just straightlining it up the road all the time. Bit disappointed and wondering how you get 7,000 with wear to spare? Kinda dumbfounded here...
