I got these tires as stock since Feb 2013, I am planning to change tires to something more off road than as to road bias tires. After 20,000KM on these tires, its threads shows it can go for another 3-6 more months if I don't abuse it. I've been on 1,000km trips two ways on these tires for 10 hours straigh on each way, that's 2,000KM/20hours! Still the tires shows its strengths. Downside is, when its raining, you have to careful on the bends and braking, it's slippery at times. Besides that, these tires has made memories!

Poor treat life
Tire does not last long on multistrada 1200 or Gs 1200 best I could do was 3000 miles if your looking for this type of tire the tourance is a much better choice

I normally ride sport bikes with really good performance tires. I've switched to a f800gs, the bike came with these tires. With the 21" front and "trail" tires I was not expecting much but they are great. I've done 1000 miles and think they have really good grip. I even did a 24 mile dirt trail with them and made it to the other side!

excellent tire and cool tread pattern
I have not had a chance to ride this tire in wet conditions but my other impressions of this tire are very good. I put the tire on just before heading off to Sturgis 2013 and by the time I got home, had put 1700 miles on it. Not a single issue.

Riding 75% paved and 25% gravel/dirt (some tame single-track) this tire has about 30% tread left on it at 10,657 miles. I have had zero issues with loss of traction. This is a quiet and stable tire.

ok on dry roads, suicidal to try anything else
I've had these for 6500kms on my F800GS and I am really happy they got worn off so quickly and had to replace them..
They are the worst tires I have ever used, I lost the front wheel several times on dry roads at low speed corner turns, many drifts at acceleration on very slightly humid roads, bad feeling in fast turns due to this repeated losses of grip although I admit they perform ok on asphalt when it's clean and dry.
I would not even try a light gravel road as they really just feel so bad. Shame on BMW having sold their bikes with those on at the time!
I would never purchase a bike with those as stock again; I definitely prefer spending another $300 and live older!
Replaced with the Michelin Anakee 3 and it's a completely different bike, so much better on every respect, not a single bad feeling or surprise in more than 3000kms.
I hate those Pirelli even more, now that I can compare them with other tires..
