    And there`s me thinking it was just me that had about 1500 - 2000 miles out of a rear tyre, my r1 is better on tyres than my cb1000r

    Shush !!! Don't say that if you want to sell it.

    At the moment I've had 15,000 miles out of my rear tyre and the tread depth is still legal.

    I tend to accelerate slowly but cruise fast. Good for the tyres and good for the bike too.---

    My service record has almost twice as many tires as oil changes and I change oil every 3000 miles. A fool and his money....

    15,000? Are you running crusier tires?

    there are so many things that affect tyre life, I ride like i stole the bike so buy tyres that are more grippy but i know don't last as long. If you ride let's say normal you will buy sports touring tyres and get greater miles from them. all i would say buy a tyre you like the feel off and get on with riding and enjoying yourself.

    the CB makes more power below about 7000-7500 rpm than the R1 does - then from about 8000 rpm the R1 rips your arms outa your sockets, of course - but the point is that for even semi-legal street riding, you're likely in an rpm range where the CB is actually putting MORE power to the tarmac than a litre sports bike. that shows up in tire life, or more correctly, lack thereof...
    piling the mileage on...

    That and the weight is what I've boiled it down too

    I also think the CB has more of a rear bias than say a 1000rr or a R1

    It shows how slow I ride.....I'm on the second rear and still on the first front tyre coming up to 7k miles. I did around 4k on the rear. Front will need doing before I hit 7k and I will probably be doing both at the same time.

    I never complained about tyre wear when I did track days etc in the car and can't really complain if I did the same on the bike. The saying "you gotta pay if you wanna play" comes to mind.

    I thought the CB ate tyres until I bought the S1000R - it shreds rears - I ran Bridgestone s21s on the Honda and you could push 3k miles out of the rear (2.5 on a spirited road trip) - the BM will be through its rear in less than 2 (and that's with winter riding - late Sept through to now) ...heavens knows what it'll cost me in the summer ......
