Good on & off road

Excellent tire, I use on a BMW R1200 GSA good for off road and handle well on pavement. I get about 6000 miles on the rear tire. I will buy it again.

A Great 40/60

Great 40/60 (dirt/road) all around tire for the big dual-sports. Have them on my 1200GS, on front of 650 Dakar, and just put them on my wife's 650GS. I will be ordering them again. The TKC80 front also works well with the Metzeler Sahara rear for more 70/30 riding. 5000 miles (3500 dirt miles) on rear with heavy loads. Front TKC80 is more like a 9-10,000 mile tire.

2nd one I've bought - love them

This is the 2nd rear TKC80 I've bought, tried several other tires - the TKC80 is just a wonderful all around tire for my KLR 650. Really solid all the time on the road, super on dirt. Its the only tire I'm buying anymore. Get about 5,000 miles per rear, which is acceptable for me.

good dual sport tire

I have used these on several bikes. They are very stable on the road (for a knobby) and wear well. They are a bit more expensive but hold up enough for it to be a good trade off.

TKC 80

After 2 set of Metzeler Tourance on my R1200GS I've been advised to fit the TKC80 since I'm doing more and more off Road. The TKC80 handles so much better than I thought it would on the road and it's just a blast on the dirt. I've got 4500 miles out the last rear tire (could have pushed it to 5K). But then again I'm not a very aggressive rider.

TKC 80 Twinduros

Great all around tire. Not great in wet road, but corners better than most other knobby tires. I run them on a KTM 950 ADV. I feel it is a 50/50 tire that is 70/30 (dirt/street) in the dirt then 30/70 on the street.

TKC 80 Rear Tire

Great tire so far. First set of knobbies on a KTM 990 Adventure. Works great on and off dirt! Not enough miles on the tire to be able to rate tire wear.

Solid Dual Sport Tire

Just got back from the Sandhills of Nebraska - this rear tire was great, great traction and no highway buzz. Felt reliable in corners on and off pavement. Would definitely buy again for a 50/50 tire.

Best all rounder for touring

I have used the TKC's with a heavily laden BMW R100 (Mongolia). They have been pushed hard in cornering when keeping up the boys on club runs (Aus)and handled dry switch-backs at very low angles. In wet weather, I developed supreme confidence considering the tread pattern.They wore exceptionally even and have had no problems getting 12,000 mls out of the rear and 18,000 mls out of the front. It all depends on how you ride!!

Everything is good except tread life

This is a great dual sport tire. I like everything about them except the tread life on the rear tire. The front is actually good as far as tread life goes. I went through 3 rear tires in the life of 1 front. I estimate that I get somewhere in the neighborhood of 3,000 to 3,500 miles out of the rear. I will continue using TKC80s in spite of the low mileage.

Only tires I use

Like all the other ratings. Have them on a Suzuki Dr650 and BMW R1200GS. Great for on/off road. Grip well but wear quickly because the rubber is soft. Will buy them again. Ride mostly street. Get about 2500 miles. Very easy to change if left in the sun to warm up. Rated at only 100 mph.

The best of both worlds

This tire is simply the best all-around tire I've run on my KTM 640 Adventure. The 150/70 fits perfectly on the rear and provides ungodly levels of grip on the road -- oh, the confidence it will inspire! I was a little worried how it would operate off-road, but in the generally dry, rocky conditions we find on the Central Coast I now prefer it to the more open-lug patterns I used to run.
