I've been running Shinko 705's this summer, 120/60 front, 170/60 rear. Installed them myself and balanced using Counteract balance beads. 37psi front and 42psi rear, checked every other tank of fuel, which is twice weekly or more often. I'm ~200 lbs before ATGATT. Always have a top box, often have the bike loaded with gear almost equivalent to a pillion. Ride a little faster and a bit more aggressively than I probably should. Mostly paved roads, with some gravel and a little dirt for fun. I've got 11,000+ km on these tires and the rear is almost worn smooth in the center, maybe 2mm of tread remaining. The front shows little wear. These tires are more capable than I am, so I plan on buying a new rear tire for next season.
