Have a General G-Max 195x55x16 in the rear. Has about 23,500 miles on it. Looks to have another 7 or 8K left. Have a Bridgestone Battleaxe rear tire on front. Have about 7K on it still looks new. The battleaxe does have a slight buzzing in the handlebars at 25mph as some others have expirenced but don't mind it especially if I get 25K out of it and can go a year without changing tires twice.
