As this thread is at least peripheralley about tires, here are several pics of a REAL tire-scorcher that I saw at a Fly-In breakfast I attended this AM on BIG RED.

12K mi, that's 19K km. I've never gotten that kind of mileage from a front tire so I would consider this excellent.

Mileage in my experience varies dramatically depending on how the bike is used. For example highway cruising, corner carving, city riding, etc.

Currently finishing year 2 with my Roadtech 01's.

that is exactly why i stopped using the angel gt gen 1. it was like paper at the end of life.
