its 1500 miles with a ferry trip as well, so three 500 mile days after a week or so touring and a 4 day bender, is just fine thanks very much, yes I could do it quicker but after 4 days pissed as a parrot and very late nights, I figure 500 mile days to be my limit.

What's your tire pressure? Are you a big guy or carry lots of luggage?

Here is what mine looks like with 2300 miles

KTM 950/990 Adventure owners show off your bike

I'm a little guy and didn't have any luggage when I last used the stock Pirelli scorpions, and they looked almost exactly like the 4.3 k mile examples above when I tossed em.


At 2700 miles.


It truly bizarre how variable tire wear is on these bikes.

haha I don't think it's that much of a mystery - I bet there's a pretty decent correlation with the activity in your right wrist.
