Question for you guys...............I only got 14K out of it the same as the 709 Bridgestone on the front. I ran 34# on the pirelli, and it wore out in the center, with lots of treads left on the sides. I ride mostly single, but I am wondering should I go down to 31 or 32 on the next one or will that make it too soft? I bought a wheel with a Avon Venon last winter and have it on the bike now. I didn't have any problem making the transition to the car tire, but going back to a MC tire, there is definetly a difference. Plan on putting another Pirelli on in the spring, before the next long ride.
