    I run 10 to 11000 miles on a rear and double on the front. Depends on your riding style and the weight of rider and passenger and load. If you are a hard accelerator and braker tires will wear quicker

    I'm getting about 8K on a stock rear Lop and twice that on the front. We have annual inspection in PA and I always have to replace my rear tire when it still has usable tread so I can't tell you how far I could really push it.

    I have 11,000 on the original tires. I am changing them both tomorrow, but the front still has some life.

    Dosnt seem to matter how I ride I can only seem to get 8000 miles out of the rear tire but was able to get 19000 out of the front tire. That rear tire does seem to wear a lot faster in the hotter temps on hot pavement.

    All I got was ~7K out of the Rear factory Dunlop. Stock bike. I could come up with lots of factors why some people get more than I did.

    I got 15k out of my 1st set of tires and am getting about the same on my second set (stock tires).

    Now be Honest. Are you riding them down to absolute "baldness" or are you changing them when you see the wear bars?

    19000 out of front.

    Just turned over 25000 miles on bike and getting to change second tire on rear, that over 12000 on each rear tire.
