yep your tyres will square off with a lot of motorway miles.

Im doing 122 miles a day commute and about 100 of that is motorway mileage. cant remember how many miles exactly I got out of my z6s but my tyre consumption is quite high

awww bollux Never even thaught about that. 500 motorway miles on sat then 500 more on sunday... won't need to use my sidestand anymore and i was quite chuffed about how well i've managed to keep my tyres rounded aswell. i suppose since the motorways will be relatively empty i could just swerve across 3 lanes all the way down

i love new tyres they always go over so easy just after scrub in. thats when i had no chicken strips and the hero blobs would go down easy, but after comuting on the motorway say buh bye to decent turning in. try a mix of motorway and twisty.

Motorways are boring anyway, nothing to look at but rows of speed cameras and open road for miles. if it wasn't for me wanting the most direct route i would take the twistys every time

Is it is a one off journey? Cause if it is your tyres aren't going to square off too much after 150 odd miles I wouldn't have thought, if you were doing that evey week then or 100 motorway miles a day like Lynw then you tires will square off fairly quick. I personally would worry too much.
