I tried to get  the road 4's but the wait was too long.I bought a Road 3 to replace the front, which does not have the rubber to do the Deliverance Tour.  I figre June or July I'll be shopping again.

I have 22,000 on the front tire I am replacing.  9,000 on the rear, I got 13,000-14,000 miles from the last one.

Barry's secret to front-tire life: (1) lots of wheelies; (2) never use the front brake.   :)

You are somewhat right on the braking front.  I use the rear all the time, and the front probably less hard than most.  I have already gone through a set of rear pads, front are still original.  I run 37-39 lbs in the front.  From what I have read about the Ninja 1000, optimal pressures are 40/42 psig

I think they they 36/39, which I did not the stock tires, but with the Pilot Road 3, the higher pressure seemed to give me better handling and better gas mileage.  Also depends which of the "calibrated" gauges I use.
