I use these tires on my Yamaha Super Tenere and I ride all year. I was able to put 10000 miles in a year and a half, mostly suburban street, city and highway driving. I ride 90-100 regularly on the highways and these tires held up very well. I lean pretty aggressively when ever possible figure there is tread on the sides I try to use it. I did develop a flat center when I reached around 10000, even though they still have plenty of traction left it changed the handling characteristics enough I am replacing them.
