Michelin pilot powers 2CT after 5000km

I just did a quick coolant flush and oil/filter change tonight and notice that the Michelin pilot powers 2CT are wearing very nicely.

Here is a picture of the rear tyre after about close to 5000km of twisty riding. The tyres still have plenty of meat for some lots of summer riding over xmas holidays.

I'm pretty smooth on the throttle, thats probably why the tyres are holding up so well.

damn, those look pretty nice! i can't get mine to look like that even after a day of hard riding! maybe i need to find some faster roads, cause the roads i'm riding on, i never have to come out of first.

Looks like he only had enough sand paper for the LH side!

Mine used to look worse than that until I changed the rear shock to my Maxton unit, within a week or two the tyre pattern went an awfull lot finer and smoother
