Diablo Strada end of saga! Mileage report..

This is the pic I took today of my Pirelli diablo strada. Believe it or not this is 10,200 miles with one 7 second burnout (around 8k miles). This is the same tire I rode to work with a 70 commute on the California freeway. This tire have also seen the canyons to include Palomar mountain on the weekends. If you like a tire that would last and stick almost as good as the regular Diablos, this one is for you...

I just bought a diablo front and am going to put a strada on the rear when my road attack wears out. Looks like maybe 5-6k for the road attack.

Thats great. I just put a strada on my 10

Yoshi slipon, Sportech DB windscreen, K&N filter, TRE, PCIIIusb, Vortex swingarm sliders, 16T front sprocket, Euro turn signals, Smoothed tail. More performance and powder coating to come.

Pireli makes some good tires. I've had my Corsas for about 3 thousand and they still don't look too bad, I could probably get another thousand out of them if I had to.

are you going easy on these tires ?

Man... 10k miles !! Just my imagination ... My big concern would be avialable traction and warmup speeds..

For a tire to last this long on a 10, you must either be riding easy all the time, or the material is really hard...

Hard material won't grip as well so my fear is that it might lose traction in a turn and launch you into oblivion...


???


How is the traction ?
