I have about 2500 on mine so far and they're looking good. However 9100 miles on any moto tire is extraoridinary, unless it's one of those Harley factory tires that as hard as a rock.

Normally get a lot of kays out of mine too,a lot has to do with checking your tyre pressure every time you ride(i have always run the factory settings)and good suspension set up. :hammer:

We never wear out tyres over here. We replace 'em either when you hit a pot hole and damage the rubber (and most likely the rim too) or when the rubber hardens up.
Our roads have no grip so soft rubber lasts and lasts, I've done about 6k kms and hardly any wear evident.

Just how square are they? hehehe

Although taking it easy in first really extends the tyre life... it's not the corners that wreak them ya know!!!
