Now, one of the most important aspects of a touring tire is, of course, longevity. With my FZ fully loaded, I got just over 7,000 miles out of the first rear tire and then about 8,000 out of the second one. My front tire went the full 15,000 miles, and still had tread left. I don’t know how they would be on a heavier, more powerful bike, but I’m more than satisfied with the range. And the price! We’re talking about $270 a set according to Shinko’s website. That leaves more money for food, gas, and adventure!
