Just bought my bike with 1500 miles on it  and was expecting to replace the supercorsa's in about another 1000 miles due to there track focus . Good news then that people are getting decent mileage from them . Would't want to be out on them today though with the amount of water on the roads .

I only got the 765R Doggy. They did not come with the same tyre as the RS. Cheapskate version methinks, good riddance to bad rubbish. I was annoyed with them and decided to get rid of them when the back end slid out on a corner it should have not slid out on. Even on my way to the tyre place I had a slide on the front. Just silly. I hated them on my previous 2016 STR as well. when I bought that bike after the accident it felt a bit staid, unlike the five star hooligan-ism of my 2010 STR. Soon as I changed tyres the old feeling came back.
Warning. Do not neccesarily take everything I say as serious or the truth.

MMmm, I've never had sports tyres in 25yrs . Give me a decent sports touring tyre anyday .
Makes me wonder how Triumph can sell a road bike with barely legal road tyres on . I would have thought 99% of people never replace them with like for like . How can you tell if they are worn out if they don't have any tread to start with? LOL .
Had two sets of Pirelli Angel st on my old MV and have a set on my Duc at the moment .
