Safety first and then mileage.
You can get a safe but cheaper tire less the miles. You could just change them more often. This would be okay if I could do my own tires... no tools or space.
If I have to pay for mounting, I need all the mileage I can get. It really ticks me off that the MC tire folks WON'T put a harder compound on them with a little more rubber. They want you to keep buying. I'm sure many of you feel the same unless you are loaded. $$
So, I am really taking my time and attempting to get as much tire as I can get for the money. I care less about the brand NAME.
I'm always in this for somewhere between $400-$500 for purchase and mounting. I'm reading tons of reviews and checking fitting for my 1800F on a multitude of brands.
Amazon has been my go to supplier and next month they are going to start adding tax on all orders from my state. Everything goes up but my paycheck.
