I got around 3000miles out of my first tyre (XT660R Spirac) now on my 3rd at using metzlar tourance which seems to be a very good tyre... I have done around 1000 miles with no real squaring off.

P.Diablo
M. Pilot Road

My OEM rear lasted 7000km. Got 10,000 out of the OEM front (exact opposite wear pattern to my R6 that was much harder on the front...)

I've changed to Mich Pilot Roads, and I've got 14,000km out of my second rear so far (i.e. double OEM).

(And yeah, I'm just commuting)...
