On my fourth D606 front tire now - I get 6,500 miles average. My rear preference is TKC80 - on my third with average mileage of 11,000 miles.
Works well for me. I rarely top 70MPH, do 95% road riding, keep both tires at 35PSI for road, air down to 20PSI offroad.
Proved personally that the stiff-walled D606 WILL run FLAT for several miles - did that during morning rush commute in town last year - big truck behind me - going down was NOT an option........

|bigjug||A set of those came on my bike. Back one was trash at about 2400 miles. Upgraded to some tr91's. Smoothed out the ride espetially at higher speeds|

|TT120||Yeah, you gotta pump those 606's up when you're on the street. I run mine at 35/36 and no stress fractures.|

Hey group - what tires is everyone running after stocks run out?

It's all about the air pressure. I would typically get 5,000 miles on a rear 606 on my KLR..I don't ride slow..85-100 is common for me. I ran mine at 35 PSI on the street with never a problem.
I get similar mileage out of the 606's on my TE610 with considerably more horsepower. Again 35 PSI on pavement.

|DXKLR||The 606's really seem to have that problem if most of your riding is on the highway. They really are for more dirt than anything else. Their longevity is short lived too when ridden on blacktop. I gotta really stress MEFO's for a good all around 50/50 tire. I don't do enough off road stuff, so I tend to stay with more road type tires. Avon Gripsters, Distanzia's and currently Pirelli Scorpion S/T's.|
