The DS is not for everyone and every bike but the liners avg 6-9K on the rear so that was three rears a year, running Avons.
That was $800.00 a year, after the first year I went to a General 215-60-17 and would never do that again, loved it 75% of the time, tolareted it 15% and hated it 10%, after it wore down I put a 205 on and and am quite happy with it.
Remember this is on a Roadliner and I ride 20-over30K a year so it's out of necessity, I wore out one new tire in one month, I also run a Pilot Activ rear tire on the front for mileage.
Unless you ride a whole lot of miles a year there is no reason to go DS, especally on an 1100.
