    2172 miles.

    ... and the rear tyre is done. So the S21, being a supersport tyre, is really no good to me. Any arguments about the tyre being more sticky than the Road 5s are pretty much irrelevant - on the roads I ride, I can't go any faster and stay safe. Sticky just means 'softer and wear faster'.

    Guess I need to order new tyres.

    I'll come back and discuss further when my Road 5 is worn out, in about 7-8k miles 8-)

    You are not talking about S21s, though, are you?

    Just coming up for a change on mine (BMW S1000R Sport), 4,900 miles on the clock and it will be the second rear.

    Running S20Evo's now but was planning to change to the S21's. It looks like 2,500 miles is about right for "spirited" riding.

    NO. Michelin Pilot Road 3s.

    By second set I mean after the set that came with the bike new. ( Three lots of rubber on the bike. ) My first post was not clear enough, sorry.
