Somewhat of a cross post since there are multiple threads in different forums on these tires:
Just mounted A3s 3 weeks ago. 2007 R1200GSA
Went on a 2 week, 7k mile trip. all surfaces (good road, bad road, gravel, hardpack, a little mud), all weather; below freezing to 107*, heavy rain, sun, etc...
They still have a ton of life in them and performed perfectly...well, except in the mud.
They are F'ing loud though. Not a little loud but a lot. Even over earplugs. I usually ride with my XD4's shield open during the day but had to close it to not get a headache. Now when it comes time for new, it's going to be tough.
I figure I have at least 3k more miles unless they wear fast in the end.
