Battlewing BW-502

Almost time to replace my rear skin (Tourance). Am thinking of trying the Battlewing, and would like some input as far as mileage goes. Research indicates that guys are happy with the performance.

How many useful miles or KM's are you getting on a BW, specifically on a Wee.

Cheers!

I don't do the metric conversion thing.....but I don't see any reason why most people won't get at least 6 thousand out of a rear. These tires stick like crazy, and are awesome on wet roads.

I got 6574 miles on my rear. . . . .Changed it out for the new 021 rear. Front still hanging in there with more than 10K+ miles on it.

Just for comparison, I get about 16,000km on a rear Tourance. If I can get at least 12K on the BW I would be fairly happy.

I went ahead and ordered one today, still like to hear mileage reports from the group.

Cheers
