That is why I am miffed big time. I wasn't expecting the 30k from Michelins' that one used to get with the XAS, XVS (and nearly on XMS(?)) but 10k would have been nice as that would ensure I got 2 years out of a rear set.
Confession time, the loud pedal is played whenever I can. I did, though, use the lightest of foot poundage on the second set of Conti Sport 3's as I couldn't believe the 5k on the first. The second set didn't last any longer which surprised me.
