well I've got over 12k on my Trailwing rear tire. I'm actually impressed with it, I'm not a big Bridgestone fan but I have to say this one has taken everything I've thrown at it in stride.. hot, cold, wet, gravel, wet dirt roads... It slides predictably, seems to grip well enough.... not a bad tire.

I estimate another 3 or 4 k left on it however with the wet season here I might replace front and rear to be safe, I hate going into winter with worn tires.

Go-ahead, look it up on Tire Rack.

Remember this was Honda's way of scoffing at H-D's CVO line. You know, the line of bikes that actually sells?

The auction bike is one of ONLY 2 yellow ones ever made, and still sold for 12 grand less than what it cost new.

You sure showed them Honda!

For that price I don't see the allure ... Especially when its a V6 but only 1800cc.

I smoked my z6 in 2400 miles on my trip to southern Oregon last month. I normally get about 8 to 10k. What a great ride though, need new toe sliders as I burned through the left one into my new boot.

Wow, I always get at least 10 k out of tires except for a D220 that got 5 or 6k. Cool and wet roads are pretty easy on tires it seems, I don't really push it that hard either so that probably helps too.

That's cuz your feet are dragging on the ground even when you're riding straight ahead.

So you're sayin' you'll spot me $1352.00 for a set of A6's?

I'll even put "Klazy Ken Enterprises" on the side of the car. At least until I wear the tires out, anyway....
