Shinko 705 rear tire life
I got about 5,000 miles out of the tire on my 2012 DL1K. Most miles were 2-up. Is this typical tire life of this particular rear tire?
I am used to a LOT more mileage out of rear tires from my GoldWing experience, so this is new to me.
Helena, MT dealer got me for the full retail price of a 705 and full price to install on the bike. If I was at home, I would have ordered from Revzilla or Amazon and taken the wheel off, then to an independent shop. Total cost would have been half what I just paid. Suck it up, buttercup.
