    About how I feel also!

    Second rear seems to be doing a little better than first as I have now already done 5k on it, so I may get 6k. Front still looks near new.

    My Street came with some of those. Always felt the tyres were holding it back from steering properly. I rode a mates Street and yup, tyres Ihave are crap. Now worn a flat on the back with 2.7mm to go and with panniers on a trip combined to feel like a barge. I'll do boxing day trek then its some S21s I've promised it.

    I've managed just 5 K on a set of 20s' road pootling, hoping the 21s will be better for longer ?

    If it weren't for flashbacks...I'd have no memory at all..

    Strikes me as acceptable for a sport tyre on NZ roads.

    Just loving the S21s on my GSXR 600. So confidence inspiring. I would expect to get no more than 5 k out of them, if that.

    If we can believe the publicity about the S21, we should get up to 30% more than an S20. So maybe 6500k.

    From experience, if you wear a big flat on an S21 it'll be shit too.

    Took me 3500k to do that, and you could probably do another 3000k wearing more flat if you continued trundling around the south in the rain.

    It skated around a bunch in the wet, there I got to say. Not a problem if you ever feel the need to explore the side regions, it seemed to hold on quite nicely there. It's when you pull out to pass the tour buses it gets more interesting than might be strictly necessary.
    Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon

    I have the opposite. The front sides are the lowest and the rear seems to have a lot more life left.

    Just fitted my 3rd S21 rear and did manage to break the 6k mark with the second.

    1\2 a tank of gas, I'm not exploring the limits of grip. But the profiles sure are a lot nicer than my buggered GTs.

    And now its raining again.
