I have 2000 miles on my set of Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR's and thought I would post a quick update.

The rear tire started with 8mm of tread and it is now down to almost 5mm, so I'm guessing I will get 5,000 miles out of the rear. The front looks new.

I really like this tires and have used them hard. 1000 miles of tarmac at high speed while loaded with LOTS of camping gear. The other 1000 miles has seen a few hundred miles of gravel and plus some heavy right hand acceleration.

They have dug me about a gravel rut in Nebraska and flung mud for half a mile in Kansas...I'm impressed (All this wheel spinning might have cost a 1mm?)

Will try to get some pics if the sun ever shines again

These tires really fit my style of riding and are fairly affordable. If I would lay off the late night snacks and go easier on the throttle the rear would last longer but where is the fun in that! :)
