That's impressive. Most I ever got out of a rear is 4k, but I think my Shinko 009 is gonna go past 5k. My BT023's were gone at 4k front and rear. I did get 12k miles out of a Shinko 712 on the front if my old CB, but I was using rears every 2500. Rear tire changes and oil changes are typically simultaneous for me. The dual sports will eat 2-3 tires to oil change though. Hell, I could only get about 5 tanks of fuel to a rear on the KLR, but that bike could go almost 300 miles to a tank.

I have been all over the states and there really isn't much of a difference between the roughness of the asphalt.

You'll get a difference between the smoothness, the number of pot holes or the likeliness to use concrete over asphalt. Overall, it's just a majority of my miles are distance riding with not as many curves.

Double the life span of asphalt. It's all about how frequently you can afford to have a road go down for construction with the rest of your infrastructure.

They don't last longer because they're more durable. They last longer because people detour the POS, so it just gets less wear.
