Tires for 6000 Mile Trip
Planning a 6000 mile trip this spring/summer covering the Great West from Virginia. I have Z6's that will get replaced right before starting the trip. I have M1's on hand but suspect they would not get the full 6000 miles before needing replacement along the way.
170 lb rider with ATGATT adding 15-30 lbs. Side cases and top box loaded for 16 days away. US Highways, little to no Interstate Highway and a few side trips for twisty/sightseeing fun.
I like the Z6 enough to use a set for this trip. I believe the Pilot Roads would also be suitable. Am I right to save the M1's for future, more local twisty rides?
