K9, I second your thoughts on the Battle Wings.
I just replaced the original Battle Wings on my '14 DL1K with the exact same tires at 7K miles. I still had approx 50% left on the front, the rear about 25% left. I use my 'strom for sport-touring, occasional multi-state road trips, no dirt.
Thing to know is that there are different Battle Wings for different bikes in the same sizes. The 1000 specifies model "J" front and rear, and I made sure that's is exactly what I got. Infact, the year/model bike was the question put to me as I was ordering just for that reason.
I'm more than satisfied with the steering, handling, ride, and tread wear with these Battle Wings.
