7000 miles is about right for a GL1500 front tyre, either Dunlop or Bridgestone. I'd expect a rear BS to last about 9 or 10000, over 11000 from a rear Dunlop (177s). It's such a hard question, so much relies on how the bike is used and where etc. I doubt if it can really be answered accurately.

7000 isn't bad for Bridgestones Glenn. Many people only get 5-6000 from fronts and maybe 8000 from the rear.

Don't forget to check the "grade" of tire, also! Type "A" tires are a harder tire with more milage, but less traction. Good in warm, dry climates. "B"'s are softer, but hold the road better in wet, foggy, dreary, grey, cold climates, and "C"'s are really soft, but are great for use on a track where tires are changed regularly.

7000 is good going. Plenty of people using Brtgdestones got as low as 3-5000 miles. They might have been riding hard, but you can see the point.
