In past when I did a lot of in town riding. I had to change brake pads and tires a lot. I do mostly 2 lane back roads these days and tires and brakes last a lot longer. I know this is to all the stop and go riding in town. My oil looks a lot better too, at oil changes. Because it stays cooler and is filtered better. Plus on the back roads you don't have to deal with the traffic constantly. Now interstate highways can be hell.
