Thanks Gills. I've had a read of them posts and I'm convinced. Trail riders for me. 👍

Front/rear: both
Pirreli scorpion trail oem tire
Front was still ok, i changed the back to a pirrelli mt60 corsa. Becaus the look is different i did the front at the same time. I'm almost at 6000km with them, i drive 90% of my traveling time with my bike so the back is getting near the end. In my opinion the corsa is grippyer and nicer looking. The bike feals better in the corners.
I will change the back by the end of september. Winter tine, wett and cild roads need more profile for the water.
Ride the mountains, ride the waves. Find your source.

Front/rear:  front
Brand:  Michelin
Type: Pilot Road 4
Lifespan:  18,200 miles
Driving style:  commuting on freeways/backroads; some twisties on the weekends

I was very pleased with the PR4. I doubt that any tire can match it for longevity. I was confident in its grip even as it wore to near the tread wear indicators in the center. There was still plenty of tread left on the shoulders. It seems like I never had to add air to this tire, and it required no wheel weights to balance. As long as I'm using the bike for on-road commuting, I will probably use this tire again. I can't say much for wet grip, as I live in the desert and ride extremely conservatively on the 4 or 5 days a year that I ride wet roads...
