I too am not all that aggressive and got about 10k km on my OEM rear tire and 16k km on my OEM front tire (Michelin Hi Sports). My rear tires life was cut short by a nail. I'm not aggessive in the corners, but I do like hard accelerating and braking. I changed the front out when I started to feel the cornering felt weird. Also the dealership told me you can run your hand against the grain of the front tire and if you feel alot of ridges then it is close to end of life.

A good sign that its time to change your tires is when you dont need a kickstand to keep your bike standing up!
I prefer to step lightly and carry a BIG stick...

When it gets to this point, replace it.

You're right... that is pretty damn funny.

Tommy's riding the hell out of those bikes but why the hell can't they beat the other bikes in 600SS? I guess it is just the riders on the 600SS bikes.

The sheep need love too but they lie.
