I have just replaced my pilot 4 s at 9000 miles, back just near depth bars front about 2 mm,  back was slighty squared but at least 1/3 of the miles were motorway on tour, front slightly shallower on shoulders with a small amount of ' scalloping', next set on and ready to go on bends after ,5 miles again, hard tyre to beat both in wet and dry grip and longevity.

Mine have only about 2500km so far but they're riding great. Using 36F/42R in them and the biggest problem I'm finding is that the bike wants to go faster. It's so smooth that I'm having to watch my speed as I'm usually 10-15kph faster than I should be or would have been with the OEM tires.
