My Dyna doesn't get anywhere near that, but I like to ride hard.
Yeah, my Road Glide seems very rear-biased. My front 407 looks good, but I'm tempted to put a new one one. I've lost rear tires before (not so bad in my experience)...but I'm not keen on having a front go flat at speed.

The rear tire life has been one of the biggest suprises of this bike. Of course, my pals like to joke that it's because there's so little HP being pushed through the tire....
