How much weight are you carrying? How heavy on the throttle are you? How hot is it where you ride? Lots of variables to your question...

Some guys only get 5000km's out of a set of TKC'S (for comparison), I'm going on 7000km's (TKC's) and still have a good amount of tread left.

So I would expect at least 15,000 km's if not more on the BMW supplied street tires.
Damn I wish all roads were dirt.
