I just got back from a two day trip though WV/MD/PA, etc and we really rode very hard at times, and this was AFTER the rear Conti Motion had right about 5000 miles on it.
NOW the rear looks VERY funky with some strange raised leading edges on the side treads (I will take a good picture and post it tonight with some trip photos)
So I will BARELY get 6000 out of the rear Conti Motion. It still feels pretty good and I experienced no weirdness due to this unusual wear, but may not go back to them in the Spring. I will most likely buy two sets of Mich Pilot Road 2's this Winter as everyone blows out their inventory.
