well three years on, my conti trail attacks reached the legal limit after only 5000 miles.

So I went conservative and switched back to tourance which originally lasted a lot longer.

MAde sure the tyres were tubed (as per OEM) and since the change, the bike feels smoother not only over our ever worsening road surfaces but also less vibey on the engine and drivetrain front. My riding style is the same so the tyres could be absorbing a noticeable amount of the vibes the bike generates

I had the same observation. My TA is only half work but it's got to go. Think it'll be for Siracs this time.
