Update on the Q2's

At 2440 miles the rear is done.... that's about equal to what I got on a PP 2CT on the Bandit...

Now this was with a trip to Deals Gap, local rides, and an Arkansas trip.

So on a heavier bike with heavy wrist, you give up mileage for grip. The spot with the cord actually came from locking the brakes for a sec, over a rise that got the bike airborne slightly...

Front still looks fine so another rear will go on to see how the front lasts.

This is true if the tires are mounted on the correct wheel. A 180 mounted to a 6" wheel instead of a 5.5" wheel will flatten out the profile significantly.

Also depends on the profile.. much easier to get to the edge on a 190/50 versus a 190/55, on the same rim width.
