I've had Michelin Road Pilot 2's on my Versys for approx. 9000KM. The rear seems to have lots of life left on it and the front just got to the wear bar on one spot on the tread. They grip exceptionally well and have worn evenly with no flat spotting. I would recommend the Road Pilot 3's based on my performance with these. From what I have read the Angels and Bridgestone BT 023's don't stand up as well.

I will use the PR2 and PR3 again.

I have the Pilot Road 3 on the Bandit 1200S. I freaking love these tires. They are real loose when compared to the Roadsmarts or Qualifiers until they get warmed up. Which takes about twice as long as the others mentioned. Once warm they are every bit as good as the others. I edge it out and still scrap the pegs so yes, I use the tires to there full potential.

The Pilots are way way better on gravel or rain than any other tire I have used. They seem to be wearing freaking amazing. I am at about 3/4 remaining at 2900 miles. A q2 (qualifier) would be done at that point. Roadsmarts would be over half gone. I powerslide all the time on them too both gravel and tar. Love these tires!!!

That calculates out to 3800-3900 miles life for you...

You find that acceptable wear for a "sport-touring" tire?

If you re-read, he said 3/4 remaining, not used up.

Ooops!

1/4 used at 2900 miles = 11600 miles life.

That's more like it!

Interesting to see that every front tire that I have seen worn out is worn on the left side more than right, as the case on my front as well. Do we just do more left turns? I don't have a preference but I guess you travel longer on a left than a right.

I love the ride and handling of these tires and if I can get at least 7k out of them, I'll be staying with them at replacement time.
Best I could manage through 2 sets of Angels was 4k on the rear (front much better)...I'm on the PR2 rear now. I do love the way the Angels handle.

A whole can of worms of opinions here, but it is a FACT that left turns are LONGER than rights, ALWAYS. So you are leaning longer and going faster thus scrubbing off more rubber.

Other factors may contribute, but this one is indisputable.

Road crown. We drive on the right, the road is higher in the center to drain water to the sides. Left side of tire wears out faster.

Those guys riding on the wrong side of the road wear out the other side first...

And for those guys their right turns are longer and wear the right side faster.
