Michelin Commander II milage?
What milage are you getting for your MC2 tires.
On my Vulcan 900 custom I got 5,500 miles out the the stock Dunlop rear tire before it was bald, front tire still had some tread but replaced both with MC2s. I got about 8k miles on the MC2 front tire before it needed replacing and about 12k on the rear MC2.
Keep front at 40 psi (spec) and rear at 36 psi (slightly higher than spec). Most riding is back country roads 40-60 mph with a fair number of twisty roads. I think the front tire worn out sooner than I had anticipated due to the twisty mountain roads I often ride which puts a lot of additional stress of the front tire.
I am getting double the milage out of the MC2 as compared to the Dunlop but nowhere near the 25k+ miles that are claimed possible with the MC2.
