I've 164,000km (roughly 100,000 miles) on my 2013 GRiSO.

Wow Wyno, that's impressive.
After 100K miles you must have an idea about tires. What have you been using most?
BTW, there's a Youtuber named Million Dollar Bogan who lives in Geelong. You probably knew that.

I've been using Michelin Pr4 and 5. I usually get around 15,000 to 18,000km out of the tyres.  I didn't know about the million dollar bogan . There are so many bogans in Geelong he'd get lost among the crowd. Pete tore the bike down at 100,000km (62,000 miles) and was impressed at how good the engine was internally. It's now got Matris inserts for the front and a Matris shock which I haven't adjusted since getting the bike bake from him. Either it's perfect or I've adapted to it. Anyway, I ride the bike every day and I've just got a new girlfriend who likes to go on the back. She probably weighs about 95 kilos so the suspension is taking a bit of a hammering with her and me on the bike.

Yeah the md bogan is a bit of a goofball.  He takes his Harley places a Harley shouldn't go.
Of course, he does it for the viewers.
That's good news about the PR4s and 5s. They are suppose to last longer than the PR3s. I got my 2011 GRiSO Sept '18 and it had 9500 miles on it and fairly new-ish PR3s. I don't know when he put them on (neither does the PO) so I'm guessing on the wear but they looked great and I've put 7k miles on them with quite a bit more tread left. I think I'll get 10k miles which pleases me. I'll have to decide later this summer (here) about either new Pr5s or a set of Conti RS 3s. The Contis come highly recommended by my local Guzzi dealer and they're much less $$ than the Michelins. Thanks for the update. I wish you guys would get a ton of rain. Such a tragedy down there.

Yesterday Geelong had the worst air quality in Australia and we're 300km away from the fires. I feel sorry for the poor bastards who have lost family members and homes.
I'm not very hard on tyres, some of the others here in Oz have only got 4500km out of a PR5 rear. Ask Pete Roper about the Contis.
