I get 10k easily (best was around 15k miles) on my rear and have gotten 22k out of a front, Harley changed the tires for the 09 and later models (Dunlop) with a harder compound in the center and softer on the sidewalls. Most of my friends who ride older Harleys are switching to the Michelin Commanders, they're telling me it's cheaper than the Dunlops and wears better. I've also had a V65 Sabre for 20 something years and I could go through a rear tire in 3500 miles and the front in 6-7k miles
