Before a trip I usually mount new michelin pilot road 2ct (2 compound sport touring tyre) they last about 5000 - 6000 km if I dont abuse them too bad. I ride my bike hard, if you take it easy you could probably get 8000 - 10000 km out of a set pilot road 2`s.
I also run the Pilot Road 2's on my Ducati. I love them. Great handling, hook-up, and wear. Riding pretty hard on the twisties up here in OR. I can get at least 4600 miles out of a rear and close to double that on the front. That is with 150 hp on the Ducati Multistrada 1200s.
