My 2016 CROSSRUNNER has done 3,300 miles . The tyres are the OEM Pirrelli. We will be doing about 1600 miles next

Hi Bob I suspect too many variables on that one including load, tyre pressure, riding style and suspension some will ditch the oem tyres asap as not usually the best spec many threads on that subject, when I bought mine with 7000 miles it had fairly new Bridgestone T30's  3000 later and the rear is just starting to square off a bit but that's mostly solo riding and one tour again solo in that time I have had no issues with wet or dry grip but will probably go back to Michelin PR4's or similar had them on my last bike and was very happy with them in the end there's plenty of choice and everyone will have their favorites and opinions good luck.`

Hi Charlie
I didn't get on with the OEM tyres at all. In the dry they were OK but in anything else I had no confidence in them at all.
Michelin PR4s or Metzeler Roadtecs are both very good tyres. Good grip in wet or dry and long lasting.  I can't talk about Pirelli's as I got rid of them at 800 miles or so.

One and a half year ago I won a brand new set of tires from Continental
Conti Road Attack 3
14000km further the rear is worn to the thread indicator , and squared off due to commuting to work.
The front tire looks like it's only half way worn but it has severe cupping.
At the low parts it's about 2mm tread left, a few centimeters further it's 4mm.

Monday the 14th, I return to Michelin Pilot Road4

71409 km

Just got mine swapped out at 5500 miles severe cupping on the front tyre, always maintained 36 psi as per the handbook. I have had the new Bridgestone A41 Adventure tyres fitted, not run them in yet so no comment as to how they are doing, will update later.

Like Slaine (and probably many others) I didn't have any confidence in the OEM tyres in the wet, dry weather they were fine but I've changed them after only 2000 miles for Michelin Road 5's. It was between the Michelin's and Roadtec's purely based on reviews of grip, warm up times and tyre wear. I read and watched a lot of reviews before deciding on the Road 5's although there doesn't appear to be much between them, but I plumped for the Michelin's due to the new design/construction of the tyre. They're only 4-6 weeks old so can't give any long term comments on them yet.
The rear OEM tyre looks like it's starting to square off after only 2000 miles but 90% of my riding is 2 up.

Just completed 10'000 kms, mainly highway, solo, about 10kg of luggage on the stock Pirellie's. Prob. could have milked another 3000ks but rear was squared off front was cupped. The handling was by then crap so I went and showed a dealer. He had all ranges of tyre's but recommended Michilin PR4's so I had them fitted yesterday
Only done 200ks since through wet mountains but I found to have confidence in the tyres even though not run in yet.
Will see how they last. Hope this helps.  :031:

As I've mentioned in another thread, I've moved from the PR4 being my go-to tyre to the Metzeler Roadtec 1.

PR5s have also received very good reports from VFR riders.

98 VFR800 - 130,000 miles (sold)
08 VFR800 - 76,000 miles (sold)
14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (sold)
18 VFR800X - 9,000 miles
