Used both Heideanu k60 and Shinko 705 on the Bonneville.
K60 last a long time and stick pretty well when new. The rear squared off (with a lot of miles) but I ride straight roads at high temps.
Shinko 705s stick well and last almost as well as the Heideanu but are a lot cheaper. The rear is holding it's profile better as well.
They both look the part, I went up a size front and rear 140 rear and 110 front.
Tyre life depends on rider and road conditions. Wouldn't say I ride that hard but I never seem to get the mileage out of tyres that some do. Seen reports of 20k miles on tyres but never come close to half that. Oem metzlers didn't make 5k miles (8k klm)
