Continental Conti Motion at 10000 miles

This is a picture of my Continental Conti Motion at 100000 miles. This is on my 2013 DL650, 99.9% highway riding and I DID have a 16T front sprocket for about half of this tire's journey. But these have some time left on them still and I plan to ride them well into the summer.

The Conti Motions are a good tire for short money, I had a set on my Aprilia and they improved the handling over the Dunlops I had been using. However for mileage was the problem, I only got 3300 miles out of the rear compared to 8K for the stock Dunlops, 9K for Roadsmarts, and 10K+ from Michelin PR3's. Even at the low price it cost me more to run them.
