How many clicks did you get out of it Mick? I'm near 10K and the rear is still OK for another couple of K's (at least that's what I thought before I saw yours). :086:
Don't grow up, it's a trap...

That doesn't look like something I want to experience!  How many miles / km on the tire?  And how does the front compare?

I was going to ask shortly if the Angel STs wore consistently towards the end of their life, or like some tyres disappeared quickly.  I should have a spare set of tyres on hand shortly (the Angel GT A version).  I have been used to tyres that wear consistently.

They have approx 14,000 ks on them. I have been holding off because I has some other services to be carried out. These were my 2nd set of Angel STs. First ones got 13,500 ks. They seem to degrade very very quickly over the last couple of hundred Ks. I have been looking at them because I knew they must be getting close. But some parts of the tyre don't look too bad, then you turn the wheel half  a turn and find that. In future I will check the tyre all the way around.

I have put the bike in this morning for new Angel GTs, 2nd major service, centre stand recall and new cylinder heads.

Thanks for that. I am at 6000kms so will take 14,000kms as a maximum figure. I should have some Angel GTs A spec as spares in the garage.

Exactly the same happened to me in Scotland last year. I only got 4,200 miles out of the rear.

I have changed to PR3s and they are not showing half the wear of the Angels.
