I only got 8K out of my OEM Dunlop E3s nearly 2 years ago. I replaced it with an Avon Cobra that looks like it is wearing better here @ 7K miles on it but it may not last much more than 10K which I think is about average

12.5K Tire mileage is very subjective. Air pressure maintenance, riding style, heat, roads, tire age, and weight all play a role.

We ride 2 up a lot, in hot weather with aggressive road surfaces. I feel that is good but YMMV

16,000 out of my oem Dunlop E3's on my CCT. They weren't worn out yet but I had some trips lined up and the money available to change them so I did. I went with another set of E3's. The MT in the rear and the regular E3 up front. I keep my pressure at 39 front and 41 rear. I'm also the correct weight for a much taller man.

All the best,

I have the same issue, must be the stronger gravity...

I had 13,000 on the rear, the tread was getting low but the tire took some damage and I replaced before a trip. I did the front at the same time as it was wearing odd, replaced both with ME880's. I run 38psi rear and 40 front.

Only have about 3500 on the tires so far but no noticeable flat spotting on the rear yet. Though there is a good chance I'll be tossing these tires out in the relatively near future. Never had good luck with factory installed tires being anything but rocks and after my trip to VT last weekend I'm thinking the bike could benefit nicely from some proper rubber. We ended up on a section of road that was HEAVILY tar snaked and while I understand that even the best tires will slip over fresh (or fairly fresh and sun heated) tar snakes, the amount of wobble I was getting going over the things was disconcerting. Typically my girl doesn't even notice things like a little wiggle in the front or rear, she's just used to the bike moving around a bit, but there were a couple whole bike wiggles that even caught her attention that day. Always been a michelin and pirelli guy so I'll probably start looking into my options with those brands and keep the stock set as take offs in case I pick up a nail or something.

Thanks I was shocked when I hit 10,00 I looked at the rear tire and it still looks good. I have buy no means baby'd it. A couple of burn outs now and then. So I'm impressed it's still good after 10,000
