Dear Pan America Riders
I am planning a bigger tour to the north of Europe this year. This actually mostly on paved roads. I have the original Michelin tires on. Can someone tell me how many kilometers/miles I can drive with these tires? From how many kilometers / miles must be expected with a tire change?
Thx.

That is the Point.
Easy going Highway with speedlimiter , Rain Modus .... = big milage.
It is okay.
My Favorit is this
The fun riding once , up and down the passes in Sport modus, full throttle the German Highway max Speed. And other tire eating behavior.
An other important Faktor is the tire. Is it hard or soft.
With so many Parameter the milage out of the tire can only be estimated.
To all don't matter how and what you rinding, ride save.

I do not see how it's possible to get 14k mi on those tires. how did you do it?
In my opinion the pas is, regarding the tires, different to the BT and so.
the pas has a lot of more power, clearance to the street, agility speed in a turn... Therefore the pas need a tire with a little ( a lot)
more grip. This kind of tires can't make so much milage as a hard tire . but for me and my way to ride it is important that the tire has grip when I need it, not on the long straight Autobahn. 220km/h
I made on my first set of tires 10.000km (6.300 mls) and I am pleased with it.

If I get 5,000 miles out of a rear tire, I’m happy. Like you said, I prefer sticky tires.
