Re: Z6's

I'm planning for my summer trips and  am trying to figure when to replace
my Z6's so I don't have to do it on the  road.  They have about 3500
miles on them and presently look pretty  good.  Anybody have any insight
into how long these tires generally  last?  Z6's have a tread that is
unique to me in that there are no  grooves that cross the center of the
tire.  Consequently it is difficult  to know how much wear has occurred.

I got 9800 miles out of one set, the  next set looks like it will go at least 
8000. One set that I rode VERY hard will  be shot before I get to 4000 miles. 

I found good mileage running 39F,  42R pressures on my R1100S.
