I can say similar things about the RA2 on my R1200R, only I am at 9300 miles on the rear and getting ready to replace it with another RA2. It's started to look squared off since maybe the last 2-3k miles now with no ill effect from it as far as handling goes. The inner wear bars are just becoming exposed. However, the flat center seems thin, looks like the wires may start to show soon, no longer makes me trust the tire, and that's what bothers me the most.
