I've used Continental Cont-tours on mine since i've had the bike (obviously apart from the factory originals). get around 7000m out of a rear & around 10-11000m out of a front. Last rear I had was £85 (around US$140) including balance. Last front I had was £65 (around US$108) including balance. In both cases I took the wheels off myself. Problem I get, as I suspect a lot of you guys get, is most of the wear is in the middle with very little at the sides due to a lot of freeway riding. Don't know if it's a fault of just Conti's but the front always wears in a kinda "stepped" pattern. don't know what other tyres are like as I use the same one's on my other bike, a Suzuki GS1000G. Does anyone else experience this strange wear pattern? Or maybe it's the way I ride??
