D 606 Mileage

I've recently installed Dunlop D-606 on the rear of my 07' KLR. The tire seems to handle well. The ear plugs should be included. I wonder how many miles I can expect to get, being I am running around town about 75% of the time ?

The one 606 I had lasted only 1500 miles. I've seen several reports of them lasting 4 to 5k but I think 3k would be about average.

Can't speak from experience, but...

Yesterday I spent a good bit of time chatting with a new KLR acquaintance who was a self-admitted hooligan.

He loves the D606 and says he gets 3K out of them.
