    Nearly 13,000 kilometres on a Michelin Pilot Road 4 front tyre. I could have got 15,000 as the tread was still beyond the wear indicators. One of my local bike shops had a discount on Michelin tyres this week so I thought why not. I replaced it with a Michelin Road 5 to match the rear tyre. The mechanic at the bike shop couldn't stop raving about the Road 5. He reckons they are the best all round tyre on the market at the moment.

    I love the PR too. I had 3's, then 4's, now 5's. I put my 5's on last spring (April for those of us in the northern hemisphere). I did 8000 miles (about 13000k) since then, half of it at 80+mph on a straight freeway with a heavy load packed for a 6 week adventure. My tires are barely half worn. If it wasn't for the slight flat spot, they wouldn't look worn at all.
