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.

Road 5 front with only 12k miles. Not the long mileage I was hoping for.
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.

Its almost hitting the TDM and if you want to know how much rubber is left in the center, just release all air and press the center with your finger, you will get a good feel of the tire. If it goes in or bends in without much pressure from your finger, then high time to change.:goodluck:
that is exactly why i stopped using the angel gt gen 1. it was like paper at the end of life.
