Agreed, those PR5 look pretty good for that mileage. Mine looked far more worn. I will report
More about the RA3 when I get more miles on them. Im curious to see how the roads treat them when the temp exceeds 90*.

I've used them for the past two years, never managed to get more than 5500 km, both front and rear.

I'll fit these Road 5 this saturday, hope they'll last longer.

Is that result of the heat they wear out so much quicker?

Gotcha colcol, more squirt & brake rides. I'm fairly easy on tyres apart from the weight I carry, usually off on tour or to rallies loaded up with camping kit, so no scratching.

Some of the UK boys are getting good miles from R5's riding in city traffic, low'ish speed but all squirt & brake traffic light starts anorl, gotta be hard on tyres.

I imagine your roads/tyres to get fair hot, soft rubber gonna shred quicker eh?

my ride is 80% motorway at motorway speeds & 20%  twisty A & B roads (not a slow rider by any means ) with only a couple of traffic lights so not a lot of squirt & brake.
must be why i get fairly high mileage from my tyres, 12 to 14,000 miles from last 3 pairs of PR2's  :152:

Haha
All squrt and brake, i like that
I do some riding two up but to be honest the bike is just as stable two up while making progress as it is when i rode solo
Just my kidneys dont get punched . Haha
