Mate, me neither - at least not when I bought those Shinko's!  I don't wanna throw them under the bus - other people have found they wear much better.  Looks wise they fit the bill, but the Heidenau K60 Scout tires look the business too.  More $$'s for sure, but you'll get way better mileage out of them as well
I've run several different tires on my dr650, and I've found that that bike wears out rear tires faster than any bike I've owned. Maybe its a torquey thumper thing.... and maybe it's because wheelies are fun haha

Current tire is a Dunlop trailsmart. I got a blemished one for $60 new, but they are regularly a $160 tire. At about 1700-2000 miles it's about clapped. Got 1500 out of a shinko 244 and the trakmaster on pavement, you can almost see the wear every gas stop lol


Ps, pic is about 300 miles ago, bit now there is very little tread left in the middle.
