I know nobody asked for it but here’s my two cents. It’s nice and well to have tires that last forever but you pay for the mileage up front when you buy that tire. One of the reasons you pay that premium price is to limit the labor or cost in putting that tire on the bike and that makes sense also. What I think is detrimental in that is the preventive maintenance and or lubrication of the rear of the bike is being done at 15 to 20 thousand miles instead of 8 to 10 thousand miles which could lead to driveshaft failure, yoke binding, seal failure all kind of things that would happen on the road when those problems could have been addressed or performed at shorter mileage intervals. I admit I’m biased towards the Shinto 230 because of cost, traction and load rating and it wears out at what I think the proper mileage is to be doing checks and maintenance in the area that would require the same labor. So why would I put on a tire that cost two times as much as the Shinko. Why not keep a fresh tire on the bike if I’m going to be tearing it down anyway. Like I said, my 2 cents. Lol

Good point Mike.

I wonder too the traction ya get from a tire that goes that long. How sticky is it.
I’m sensitive to that now since my son rides the canyons on his BMW, and the front tire slid out on me on the Goldwing recently. Dunlop E3. All straight line highway I guess okay, but I wasn’t going all that fast in the turn, and the way we were carving prior should have scrubbed it and been plenty warm.

Seems the compound hardens up with more age and heat cycles causing traction to fade. Still good tire as long as your aware of the loses caused by those two factors. It’s a trade off. I’ve had traction save me twice
