Make sure you are buying correct type tire,tube type or tubeless.

I purchased a 100/90-19 for my Triumph Tiger 800. Ran it all last season.While airing up my tires this spring, I noticed that it was a tube type tire and I have tubeless wheels. Needless to say, I replaced it immediately. Make sure you check the type.TT= tube type.TL= tubeless...You are never too old to learn something new.

Great Tire on F650GS

I,ve used Bridgestone, Dunlop, and Michelin 80/20 dual sport tires and have found them all wanting in the dirt, death in mud, and just ok on pavement. Was convinced by a BMW dealer to try these and was immediately impressed. On pavement they stick like glue; if I had the nerve I'm sure I could drag my pegs in the corners. As it is, I can hug any corner with impunity. In the dirt it gets plenty of traction for my riding style which is not balls out ripping it up, just getting out to see the country. I've never felt the tire was going to lose it like all the others I've used. I get 12K on the front (6K rear) max pressure on asphalt and airing out on dirt by as much as 10 pounds- so 35psi to 25psi cold. Cornering gets 4 stars because dirt is so variable and wet traction gets 4 because wet roads will never match dry roads for stick-ability.

Love my TKC80's

I ride 70% off road and use roads to get to there on my R1200gs in the NW mountains. I also love high speed paved mountain passes and the TKC 80 is my number 1 tire set for stability, traction, and pure safety. I burn up rear tires far more then front with an average tread life of 3k on my rear and 10k on the front. I have tried many different rear tires but always come back to the TKC's when I need maximum and stable performance.

Not on my bike

I have been riding this tire on the front of my Husky TE 449 for the last 2 months and it just doesn`t hook up in the dirt which is where I spend 80% of my time. It washes out when you are on the power in corners and isn`t great at high speed in loose stuff. It works really well on pavement but I don``t really need that. So not so good!

Excellent knobby for KTM 990

Best of both worlds or at least as close as you can get for a knobby on the street. Big bikes that play off-road need solid front end traction. The TKC delivers that wet or dry. On-road performance is great but knobs may distort after sustained heavy braking.

Great all around tire

BMW 800GS - Much better off pavement than stock tires. Handles surprisingly well on pavement.

Wearing fast

I thought with the amount of rubber on these tires that they would last. Though I have tried my best not to 'lay into it' on a ktm525, the back tire is showing serious wear on the front edges only after rides. The tires weren't cheap, I wonder if it would be best to buy the cheapest knobby and ride like you want to and just replace the tire. I dont think this tire is going to last any longer than a 606 or similar tire. I do like how they ride on payment.

Perfect 50/50 tire!

I exclusively use TCK80s on my KLR650. They are the best 50/50 tire with the least compromise.

A must have if you offroad much

I take my VStrom DL650 out on the dirt way too much. I probably should just buy a dirt bike! However, with the TK80 I've been able to get places a big bike like the Strom has no business being. Works well on the street too. A bit noisy but the handling is good and the tire holds up well on the asphalt. About 2000 miles on a full set now and very little wear.

TKC80

The TKC 80 just works. It's hard to beat a knobby that runs like a full street tire. I use it on the front of my BMW R1150 GS Adventure, which is a heavy bike. It tracks very well on the pavement and helps keep the bike planted on the dirt. I would recommend this tire to any adventure rider. I normally get 10,000 plus miles out of it. I use beads inside the tire to keep it balanced though out the life of the tire.

Great tire wherever I go

I put these on my Dakar 650 after slipping and sliding in mud on Tourances. I mostly do street, but wanted traction in mud and am very pleased. On the street I can ride it like a sportbike, and it holds great even when wet. I ran one for 9500 miles on the front,(and just installed another TKC80) but should have reversed it on the rim after 5k, as it started getting edgy on the leading edge. A bit pricey at 2x of a Metzler T63, but much quieter on the road with the big knob blocks.

Its a keeper

This is my 2nd...got 6 or 7K outa the first one and could have done more but wanted some fresh rubber for the 1500 mile Tour de WY and a little bit of CO on my KLR - lots of dirt, gravel and mud. This tire is a good balance in everything...its like a KLR...not perfect for anything, but it will do it all just fine.

Good (not great) in a lot of varied conditions. I like these on the front of my Adv. type bikes with something else bringing up the rear.

Excellent overall

Great tire provided you spend significant time off pavement. Tread life is poor, but that's the tradeoff for good dirt performance. Expect about 4k miles. I keep this tire mounted 9 months a year, otherwise it's Tourances.
