Just finished up an RS3 on the rear. 6400 miles to the wear bars, side and middle. This is a new personal best for longevity. Yes, my bike gets flogged hard on fun roads and that's about where about 75% of the miles are acquired.
Note: this was a 170/60 tire, not a 160/60.
This tire was awesome to the end, not like certain PR
tires. I would buy again.
I currently have a T31 BS on the back. I couldn't resist the $115 price with tax and rebate. I ordered one up for the last trip to change at a friends house in AR and have three more at home. That should all last just over a year. I and my friend did head out for a spirited(after scrub in) 250 mile jaunt in AR to properly test the tire. 1/4" of chicken strip left, all good.
I currently have about 4k miles on the RS3 front and am pleased. The tire is quite capable and fun. It is a bit touchy, though on higher speed sweepers when leaned over hard.(think 70-80 mph) Not terribly so, just a bit more sensitive to handle bar inputs. Awesome n the lower speed twisties.
Next trip, 6-8 weeks in Colorado area and try for the Devils Highway in AZ. I've been trying for two years to get to that road and either drought (they closed off camping nearby, snow, or monsoon season has precluded my tearing up this awesome sounding road.
I expect to wear out two rear and one front tires on this trip. Yee. Haw! Yes, I love me some Colorado time. (and N GA, and CA, and BC, and NC and AB and...)
Sorry about the drift off topic.
