New rubber

I just put new Bridgestone BT 020 s on my KS today. I did 4900 miles on my Bridgestone 014 s and understand that is a lot of miles for those tires. In Florida, we have a lack of twisties so its mostly stright ahead touring. How many miles should I expect out of my new rubber?

These tires, like the Z6 and PRoads usually about double the mileage of the M1 etc. So, I'd expect you'll see about 10K miles with your riding habits. But, watch the tire pressures on the 020 because the front is famous for cupping.
