Its prolly a little ways off for me yet but I know new bikes seem to be sold with short lived tires. I expect the Battlewings to be gone by 4 to 5 tho kms. In the past, short lived tires has had me looking for something that would last. For my needs on this bike I may go with Heidies again as they gave me an incredible 22000 kms. (ridden to the threads) from the pair I had on my F8.
