Two rears to one front is normal for me
I have now run 4 sets of Pilot road 4 Trail tyres on this 2010 GS.
I always get twice the life from the fronts, and believe me they get ridden hard on the twistier bits, with the foot pegs and even the gear lever grinding the road.
I have just done a 3000 km road trip over 5 days and i can't believe the amount of wear that i have done over that distance.
Running 38 psi front and 42 rear, filled with Nitrogen, they have worn the center of the tread a lot more than i would have expected.
The bike had a loaded top box and both panniers full, so it was running reasonably heavy.
I would normally run only 38 psi in the rear even with the bike loaded up.
I would normally get around 13000 km from the rears,but i doubt if this one will go past 9000 km as it is now.
For me, on the Michelin Pilot Road 4 trail, it will be be 36 and 38 from now on
