My rear tire is so squared off at 5700 miles, need new tires!!!
I meant at a track day.We don't have inspections here Crazy, I was 2 1/2 hours out in the country as that's how far away any decent twistys are when I stopped to look at a map app to see where I was and MT my bladder and I walk back to my bike and those tires that looked decent a couple hundred miles earlier were showing patches of cord! The edges still looked new! clearly a great tire for the track, long strait roads not so much.
I'm running Avon 3D ultra sport on the Daytona at the moment and on the front of the Thruxton (with a 3D storm XM on the rear for mileage).Anyone tried the Avon? I used them in my previous bike (Aprilia Shiver) and they were amazing. Like, another bike than the one I rode with the stock Dunlop. Those where the Avon Ultra Sport and I'm tempted to get those when I'll have to swap them. But I've also seen there is a new "Spirt ST" which looks interesting. Any clue?
Agreed, 5000 miles is pretty much the threshold for any sport tyre, even less if you really 'waste' them, and that's exactly what I've got from my Ultra Sport.I'd still recommend them though, despite being quite an old design now they are more than good enough for me as an average road rider, and 5000 miles isn't bad for a sports tyre.
