Yes, should have clarified. Changed to the Angel GTs from the OEM at 4370 miles on the bike. I just hit 5k this past weekend and have really been enjoying these so far. I went with the stock size as I'm still learning all the nuances of the bike's handling with these, and so far, loving every minute of it.

Might try the 55 rear on the next set, which will probably be the PR3 or the Z8 Interact. (I like to try different tyres when I can. )

I just returned from a 3,890 mile trip that started with new PR2's. These are a little flat down the middle, but the wear is minimal considering I'm averaging 6k miles on the first two sets (OEM and RoadSmarts).

Rolled past this milestone on the return trip from the Grand Canyon, UT, and CO tour.

The mileage is running about 1k a month average for ownership, and it doesn't commute for work. In reality, this is chump-change compared to some guys on their C14s.

Mine is sitting at just under 82k miles. She hasn't been flawless, but she's been pretty damn good. I only have a couple weeks left to decide on the extended warranty.

Mine has just short of 45k on it. I just had the ABS pump replaced, under warranty. I was told I can buy another 3 years for it and plan to. The bill would have been $1400+. That bill alone paid for both the extensions I will have bought for it and that doesn't count the three rear end leaks and the three sets of brake rotors....

So work has me in Vergennes, VT, and as we drive through town I see three Arabian red C14's. Two are parked outside the Park Squeeze. Any one here?

Last weekend, I rode up to western NC with my Uncle. He had just gotten a new Street Glide and wanted some break in miles and he'd never been to Deals Gap, or US 421 (aka, "the Snake") or any of the other choice roads in that area (ex. 194E out of Banner Elk).



We were in and out of the weather a few days, luckily the weather cooperated for this shot:



My C14 has 79,xxx miles on it. Other than consumable (tires, pads, gas, oil, bulbs) I've not had any problems with it. I only replaced the front rotors on account of me warping them during a clumsy tire change.

It's been a superlative ride.
