Best feel of any Car Tire I have used so far. Of course, I have only had two others and they were on the Burgman 650. I think thsi thing really corners good - need an expert rider like you to try it.  :happypep

If measurements mean anything - I used up 1/5 of tire in 4000 miles (it would be slick at 5/5). So, should get aournd 20,000 miles. Had hoped for more, but most say OEM Tire (Bridgestone) is like 6000 miles on the rear and near $100 each (say $300 for three) VS about $60 including shipping on the Car Tire. Need to find one local soa void shipping.   

You still be around in 16000 miles to get this off the rim and new one on  :happypep----- OR, should I sell the Scooter before the tire is worn out.  :34
