I've seen it mentioned here several times, and I really like the product. Beyond the safety aspect was the increased life of the tires. Have people seen a similar response in scooters? My Triumph Sprint rear tire went from a 4,500 mile life to 6,000+. Already ordered some for the new ride, just curious.

I use it in all my scooter and motorcycle tires.

Static balance first though; I use Marc Parnes system.

I wish I was getting that kind of life on my rear tire. I ride pretty aggressive so I go through a rear tire pretty quickly. Throttle use has a lot to do with tire wear along with how hot it is outside too. Running a sticky tire on a hot day is a disaster for tire life. I prefer a sticky tire so the life to stickiness is a decent trade-off I guess. I am almost to the end of my City Grip and just bought my new 19 500 HPE back in February. At 5300km and it is almost down to the wear bars. Again, I ride pretty aggressive. Like, I try to keep up with the sport bikes in the corners just because the front end grip is so massive.
