I would love to get 11k out of a set of tires.

4k is my average mileage from a set of Bridgestone S-21's and soon to be S-22's.
Tire-life on a pair of V650s:

OEM front - 12,035 kms ('09 V), 14,162 kms ('15 V) 9,606 kms REAR
ContiMotions - 13,885 kms front; 13,923 kms rear
TOURANCE rear 150/70 x 17 - 14,855 kms// 14,045 kms

a few photos with the tire that got a screw in it and I fixed it with Dyna-plug
It had approx. 5k when I had the event, and I change it yesterday at 11k km, without adding any bit of air since originally installing it.

Extra bonus, a photo with the Dynaplug head from inside the tire.

When this rear gets replaced, the front will be replaced as well. It will likely still have lots of tread left.

That what happens when you spend most of your road miles doing dank nooners, I suppose.

DANK
Another way of saying COOL or AWESOME TO THE MAX

NOONER
A wheelie that points directly to the sky

It's supposed to be funny, since I am neither capable of being cool or intentionally pulling wheelies.

Be glad they are not tubed tires. :)

I like to use Ride On liquid tire sealant. Pull out the nail and it seals fairly well.

Another more extreme solution is Rhinotire. You can drive over nails and the sport-bike tires seal instantly. They do add counterweight due to the special rubber coating inside the tire.
