I have a Bridgestone Exedra G850R 180/70ZR 16 on the rear fof my 1800. The tire handles great but as expected isn't great for tread wear. If anyone out there runs this tire what kind of mileage are you getting before replacement? I have about 6500 on this one and probably have no more than a couple thousand more.

Tire wear varies and there is not one set standard. Each rider will get different wear depending on if they romp on the throttle more or less, the type of road surfaces ran on and so on.


The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.
