Mmh, 16k km's, of course. And pigs can fly.
You do know that the 899 has more than 1 gear, right? There is a second, third and so on up to a sixth.
Sounds like you never gonna need new tires, they come automatically with a new bike.

Well, then I can only come up with one explanation for this kinda extraordinary performance: You're on the wrong side of the road. You're all a bunch of wrong-way drivers!
Usually here the right-hand lane is the one to drive on. There the tarmac is designed in a very particular way: to give the most grip when driving there in a forward direction. Since you're all using our lane kinda backwards, for you the grippy part of it is eliminated. It's like stroking a dog through the fur. In one direction, it is smooth and soft (that's where you come into play), in the other direction, it is rough and bristly (that's where we got our knee on the ground). If all of you over there are driving on the wrong side, it is no wonder your tires last a full motorcycle life.

I'm at 21,500 miles since last April and soon to be on my 6th set of tires. I'm averaging 5-6k on a set of the Rossos (front never wears out but replace both at once).

Going to try out the Q3s this next week. Interested in this new 180/60!

Gidday Jarelj,

Have you had any more feed back on the tyre mentioned above? And RRP?

Cheers

Had a few people run them this year, feedback was good, grip and wear on the track were acceptable but the grip was not quite at the level that a faster track rider will want. You would need to step up to the full-on DOT race tire, the Power Cup Evo to get the grip. In my opinion they're still a step down from the Pirellis though, I still think the Supercorsa SP is the best "track/street" tire available for these bikes.

Step down from the Supercorsas, the Rosso Corsas, or the Rosso IIs?

I don't think I necessarily need the grip of the Rosso Corsas and would trade more mileage for it.....

Step down from the Supercorsa SP's as far as track performance. As far as mileage, I don't know.

Thanks for the update Jarelj.
Just replaced my front with a Rosso ll, so I'll c how that goes but so far so good.
I'm a bit like u Jessika, prepared to forfeit a bit of grip at the rear for a bit more mileage.
