Commander II pressure

To those of you running the Commander II's. Most are reporting high mileage with these tires, so what pressure are you running? Please indicate if most of your riding is solo or two up.

Just installed a set and was planning on running 40 F & R, 2up.

Thanks

2up riding for me. 42 rear 40 front. Got 14000 out if rear before I got a nail in it but it would of made 20000 and my front had 19000 when I changed it. Could if went farther though but was having rear changed so did them at the same time.

I use 38 psi front, 42 psi rear, solo or 2 up. 13 k miles on rear, and still looks great.

Thanks everyone for the replies. Think I'll go with 38 F and 42 R for my upcoming trip, expect to be loaded up, then drop back to 40. Again THANKS
