Never rode a bike with any real power before I would suspect as well.Never saw tires wearing so quickly on a bike
Try having to change tires every 1000 miles or less.. lol
After 5500 miles on the stock tires on my bike I still really cant complain. they have held up well, worn well, handled well enough in the rain except when I got caught out the other day and the rear has next to zero tread left and that's not the tires fault.
The rear slipped a bit on me once while going thru a decreasing radius turn up in the mtns the other day at a speed most of the kids on ther sport bikes can't achieve and I more attribute that to the fact that the tire has been on the bike since 08. But this Friday those tires become a memory and are getting replaced since I am at the wear markers and then some now.
