Curious do you like the 805's? These are too big for my DRZ, but Im considering buying this particular tire if they will fit my bike. They look great.

I ran them on my Strom and loved them. Suprisingly good on the highway.

Mileage depends on a LOT of factors: tire pressure, riding style, paved or unpaved, bike load, type of pavement, lots of straight up or lots of twisties, etc... I've read of people getting 10K out of a rear on a GS. I don't think I've ever gone more than maybe 5K on something like an Anakee/Tourance and maybe 3K at best on something like an 805/TKC80. So unless you are really familiar with how someone rides and uses a tire, asking people what mileage to expect isn't likely to get a really useful answer. You really just have to try some different tires and see how they work for you.

I’ve run them on my GS1200. Got 3k on the rear, the front is still on. They’re good tires and never surprised me. Quieter on the highway than Mitas E-07’s.

They're all I run on my strom anymore. I get around 8k out of a rear and 10or so out of a front. Love them. Ran them all over southern California which has far more "ADV" Riding than we have here in Texas and they did great. One of my riding buddies went from TKC80s to 804/805 and said he won't go back. He claims there are circumstances where the TKC did a tiny bit better but that double to triple the tire life more than makes up for it.
