So Blackburn you are getting 26/27 thou kms per rear tyre? Pretty bloody good!
Got 22000 from my Dunlop but have 18000 on my BT-023 and reckon it's probably good for another 10000.
what were your tyres?

new Bridgestone T31 on the back, while the front still on Pirelli Angel GT.
I've been on Michelin Pilot Street Radial, the most hard wearing rear but less than ideal traction in the dry.

just passed 32,000 miles. no major problems. a few front tires, a few rear tires, one chain/sprockets replacement. just did the 32,000 mile service (replace all fliters, replace all fluids, new spark plugs, etc.). only part that went bad so far was the radiator fan motor.

My bike (2013 CBR500R-TriColor) seems like a garage queen at 1,274 miles. Actually I just ride 3 miles back and forth to work....love my bike!

With only three miles each way you should either ride a bicycle or walk. Better for you AND the motorcycle, which doesn't get a chance to warm up and remove the water vapor from the oil.

Just bought my '15 CBR500 with only a little over 12K miles. That was 2 weeks ago, it now has almost 15k miles.. Yes; I live in Arizona and I love to ride all the time........ Heat, more Heat and Blast furnace Heat... Does not matter I will still ride over driving any day.

26,000 on my 2016. It would be a lot more but I quit riding canyons after doing a couple of trackdays.

Bought my 16 CBR500R in September of 18 as a leftover (new). Has 6,500 miles on it now. Bought a 19 CBR650R in October of 19. Has 4,500 miles on it. Bought a 19 Fireblade last month. Has 1,100 miles on it.

Honda fanboy, I suppose!
