Have you tried A2's. I have 10,700 miles on Linda's A2's, half of it loaded with pillion, and I'm not even close to needing to replace front or rear. A few years ago when the A2's were introduced, a German (IIRC?) motorcycle magazine ranked the A2's superior to any other tire on wet pavement. I can also vouch for them on dry pavement while schooling the squids in the tight stuff... Which I've also done on TKC's... Oh, the look I got when they finally catch up to me at the next watering hole, when they see Linda proudly wearing knobbies!!! They just scratch their heads and stare...
