man.. that's some mileage, Mr. Jinks!!!
Using 42/48 I've only managed 5-6k front, 11-12k rear.. on Bridgestones ('Stones) BT020's. And that's about "normal"/average.
It is important to note there can be variances in gauge accuracy.. so, get an accurate one.
Since you're new here and just getting your "farkle" awareness up, there are also some gauges you can install INSIDE the Tire!! They mount to the wheel with a big stainless steel band. They have small transmitters in them that send the "pressure" readings inside the tire to a receiver mounted on the bike where you can see it.
There are lots of threads on this and I suppose someone will speak up about how they work.
One of the cool things is that the system "monitors" running pressure so you can keep your eye on it..
The only "downside" I see is during tire change you must be very careful not to damage the transmitter..
