VStrom 1k
Michelin PP3's
Mostly straight line commuting with ~1500 miles of hill country play time each year.
6-8k Rear (36 PSI for commuting, 32 PSI for play)
Swapped the front at 7k because it was cupped. Still had decent tread left, though. Running same pressures as the rear.

Oh...and it's a twin, so I like to make it dig as often as I can.

It's a track oriented tire. Plus hill country roads are like cheese graters in tires.

Pirelli rain tires lasted 426 miles with plenty of tread left. That's at an average of 58 mph and on very wet pavement.
