I'm calling bullshit. I don't care what pressures you're running, there's no way in hell you're getting 10k on regular sportbike tires.

I posted the pic of my original Bridgestone BT015 rear tire at 9,198 miles earlier this year in another thread. As I said, it still had plenty of treadwear left and I only had it changed at that point because I had the bike partially apart in my basement in the middle of the winter and it was a convenient time to do it.

My Bridgestone BT016s just went past 7,000 miles the other week and they still look great. I'll post a pic of the rear tire sometime next year after they hit the 10,000 mile mark. Stay tuned.

Don't go away mad..... just go away.

yeah, I think you're getting your panties in a wad here. Be nice and let everyone have their say. unless you personally know the person you're bashing, keep it cordial, okay. The Admins have remedial penalties for this type of behavior....

It all depends on the tire, DOt racing vs Street tires are all different. For example, Dunlop DOt's 211's are 30f, 21 cold or 23 warm r PSI. street tire depend son weight and temps. A light 140 lber is different than a two up rider. Generally 32f and 34-36 rear for single riders is sufficient, 36f and 42r for two up or heavier riders works for street.

mess around a little and see what you like.
That's about generally right, depending on the temps and type of riding he does. Softer for more carcass flex to warm it up for hard riding in the canyons, higher PSI for commuting or two up riding, etc.

Funny sh!t. Everybody throwin out numbers like they're playing lotto. Tire pressure on any given bike has so many variables (rider weight, temp, riding conditions, tire compound etc.) that each rider has to learn to adjust themselves. Get out there and experiment and figure out what's best for you. You'll learn to feel it in your a$$. (ready for a juvenile a$$ remark) Ride safe.

If you can't run with the big dogs,
stay on the f@ckin' porch.

Well maybe he is a stand rider. I have offered to ride with him in the last thread with no response. I have never heard of people getting anything close to that mileage on a SPORT TIRE maybe a sport touring though.

I must have missed the invitation. If you want to go riding send me a PM but not until April after I get it back out of the basement.

Sport touring or sport tire, I now have close to 8,000 miles on my BT016s and they look like they're barely over half worn.

Its all good, I will not be pulling my bikes out of the basement as well until at least April. So how do you feel about the NC/TN mountains. The weekend of April 19 we a buddy of mine and myself will be heading down to Robinsville NC to hook up with around 15-20 other sportbike riders for our FIRST of the year Spring ride.

I just figure I have to meet somebody getting that kind of mileage and figure out what we are doing different.

I'm about your weight and wear the battle axe tires. I got almost 8,000 miles out of my last set. I spew 38 psi in both tires.

Damn, the term is "Sport Tires" which are susually soft and gooey, made for high traction, short longevity. I don't know if the 016's are classified as a "Sport Tire" or a "Sport Touring Tire." And if anyone of you is getting that kind of mileage, then you're really not riding very hard or very far or you have some kind of magical rubber road you're on! I want some of that stuff! My rears get, at best, up to 4,000 on belts showing. But by then I've probably worn down the edges anyhow. You guys need to get out and ride harder or something...
