    I was happy with both sets of mine, got around 10k miles on the first, less on the second. Second set was on a long road trip two up and loaded down. Would still be on them if i didn't decide to go to a more off-road tire.
    I get 63 MPG, what do you get? Speeding tickets?
    I pack to camp but stay in a hotel because I have no idea what I'm doing...

    I have an Angel GT on the rear. Handling was good but is cord showing down the center at 7500 miles. I weigh 190 in full gear and never ride double. I inflate to recommended pressure. I'm disappointed with the mileage. Very surprised by how quickly it went from worn to worn out. I am going with the PR5 this time. $185 at Revzilla.

    I get ~5k out of Road5 rears, but that's on a bike making ~2.3x the power of the NC and weighing ~50lb less. I might have to try one on the supermoto sometime, I like how soft the carcass is.

    When you say "recommended pressure", you mean what the bike says on it?

    Recommend PSI is 42 and that what I used every time I checked pressure. I was looking at the mileage again and it is only 7000.
    I have a Bridgestone Battlax BT023 on the front with 8500 miles on it 36 psi no cupping but ready to be changed. I will buy a pair of PR5ís.

    Where did you find 42psi? That's awfully high. The pressure on the sidewall is generally the maximum safe pressure.

    The owner’s manual and the sticker on the motorcycle recommend 42 PSI in the rear tire.

    Wow, I hadn't looked. That's significantly higher than I'd expected for solo riding given weight and power output. Does it give a separate pressure for 2 up, or just one pressure?

    Just one pressure. 42 psi is, or is quickly becoming, an industry-wide standard for rear tires, just as 36 psi is for fronts.
