Well, my 09 Busa has 5,167 miles on her and I'm replacing ANOTHER tire! Of course it came with the junk Bridgestone, then I put a Dunlop Qualifier Sportmax on her, only got 2,217 miles out of it. Now I'm considering going with a Michelin Pilot 2 Road Tire. I know it's not an ultra high performance tire, but it has the harder center tread compound, and that's where I keep destroying my tires. Right down the center. Heck, belts are showing as we speak. I don't do burnouts either. Or lock my tire when stopping. Anyone know if this tire is a good choice for my tire dumpster of a bike?
