Overall, I do like the 705's, especially up front. I estimate I will get well over 12,000 miles of hard riding on the front 705 tire. As for the rear 705's, not so much on my '14 1000. I have been getting less than 4,000 miles on the rear 705's. I did switch to the 805 rear for the NEVA '17 event this year to better handle the off road riding. The 805 rear did help me remain upright while navigating through what the other riders called "my hero section", and for that I was thankful. Rode home on Sunday from Pennsylvania with Kevin P. on well paved Route 30. We were doing some fast and hard riding on big sweepers 80+ m.p.h. indicated, and the 805 rear ( and 705 front) stuck to the road like glue. Very impressed. My only concern is the lack of longevity with the 705 rear. In addition, I don't think the 805 rear will last more than 3000 miles. But overall great tires. :smile2:
FWIW I have about 6000 miles on my set of 705's. The front looks really quite new still, and I think the rear is probably at about 20 to 40% of it's life left. I have no doubt the front will make 10K or more... The back is starting to flatten down some but still has a great amount of tread pattern left so it's really hard to say.
