Amazing indeed, sleep_red are the roads your primarily travel straight aways? I ride my bike to work as much as possible which is a straight interstate drive, then on evening and weekends we like to corner carve and take advantage of the mountainous roads offered by Western, NC such as Deals Gap, THe snake off of 421 and local roads here that are curvy. Certainly tame by your standards but I went back and looked, I put 2700 miles on my bike in two months of riding, not including the miles I put on my wife's bike. That's why I wanted to go with the Avons to avoid changing tires every 3 months or so.
