I have P3's on the SM after a set of P2s. I haven't noticed a lot of dry road difference, but the 3's are better in the rain and they seem to be wearing a bit better so far.
Wow. If you kill k60 in 4k you must beat out big blocks in about 100 miles.
Im headed out around the country, new front. Ill see what I get. When I ride them into the wear bars its usually around 11g. Just took this one off at 8. Worn, but not close to the wear bars.

Nah- I get about 3500-4000 out of TKCs and usually a little more from 908RRs. That just seems to be about what I get regardless of the tires or bikes.

It will be interesting to see what you get on your trip. I'd guess less than what you usually do as you get out into less crowded areas for so long.

Interesting how people have different tire experiences....

On my SE, Big Blocks, as little as 1400, the most was 1900

K60,,,, around 6000

There is a Mitas tire with very similar tread to the BB that guys are getting better miles.
