Just finished servicing my bike. 86480 on the clock and still runs like new. I pull my records to take a look at when I put the rear tire on, a Michelin Commander II. 24260 mile ago! It still has a few miles left but not trip worthy. Dyna beads and maintaining the proper air pressure are the only things I can attribute the longevity to.

He's at 24,260 which is still a helluva lot on a rear tire. What air pressure are you running Joe? What size rear wheel?

Got it I was reading it wrong and yes that is good mileage out of a rear. I switched to the commanders my last tire change and have about 16k on it and still looks great.
