i'm just wondering what the average amount of kilometers that people are getting from the original factory stocks.
I bought my 2004 1200 bandit in May 2004 and i have since then put on 4500 km's.The tires still look pretty good but i'm just wondering what everyone else is getting out of their factory stocks(michelin macadas i think). :smile:

Someone needs to invent a sticky 60,000 mile tire for bikes! :roll:
C'mon Dale ... if someone wanted to sell you a motorcycle tire that would last for 60'000 miles, would you buy it? I don't think so - sticky and long-life are mutually exclusive. I want to know that my tires are going to stick to the pavement in the next curve - I don't care if they only last about 8'000 KM. By that time, I'll want new tires anyway ... there are so many out there to try ...

So much rubber ... so little time. :mrgreen:
