for comparison

4000 miles on Dunlop 220's

Front is beautiful, back is developing flat center spot

On 98 CBR 600

Projected mileage f/10+k, r/8-9k

For further comparison if you want, I had my stock Bridgestone BT-56's on for 14.5k. Front cupped from braking/cornering, rear flatspotted nearly to bottom of siping, but nowhere near "cords showing".

Yeah, I ride pretty mellow...
