I hear ya, I got 2000 miles on the last Mefo I purchased. Never again. Dunlop 908 gets me around 3500 before it is done and has much better of road capability in my opinion. I will be trying the Heidenau K74 next, the price is right, but how will it wear? The big knobs on it worry me, Easy to rip those off under the typical 990 throttle use.
