My (19") front has done about 16,000km and still has plenty of tread. The rear is about 9,000km and is probably a bit of half worn. I would be thinking 15,000-17000 km from the rear probably.

Just short of 17,000km and still going strong.  Certainly plenty for this winter without issue.  But then I've always been light on tyres.

Well pleased
Have done approx 10000 km
Front now at 4mm from 5mm
Rear now approx half worn 4mm from 8mm used
Highly recommended
Expecting approx 18000 - 20000 km from rear
Front looks good for another rear

Obviously wear is important, I've yet to see how long they last. For me it's more important to have plenty of grip ands it's difficult with our tyre sizes to find such a thing but the Trailriders will be difficult to beat I reckon

They grip like grippy stuff on a grippy shovel - as in very grippy.

Hi All
Looking at getting the trailriders for my 2013 Roadie. Quick question.

What size are people using on their Roadies? I currently have PR4s at 110/80-19 and 150/70-17 so I was going to go for the same. But I see the Trairiders also come in 100/90-19 for the front as per Triumphs recommended size.

Thanks in advance

Go with the 110/80 - 19. Much better grip, turning, braking and confidence.
