No two riders ride the same. A slight difference in take-off speed and engine braking can take a major effect on tires.KenH said:Sooo, the wing should get less tire milage? Most folks say in actual use, the VTX gets a good bit less tire milage.
A buddy has a VTX with a worn out E3 with only 7K miles while I've got the SAME E3 (180/70R-16) on my wing with 12K miles and have about 2K left.
He and I ride about the same. Back when we both had 1500 wings we got about the same tire milage tire change after tire change.
So, with our riding style similar, I would have expected the same tire milage from the same tire.
