    Awesome tire, but...

    I've gone through several sets of these. Front cups after a while but the rear doesn't. Pretty good in the dirt when new and always great on the pavement. I'd buy more but they've priced me out at this point. They aren't TWICE as good as a T63, just twice as expensive.

    TKC

    They're ok- quiet, predictable, appropriately grippy. A 990 ADV makes it short lived. But, it eats em all. It has a softer sidewall than the 908RR. Better for 20% off road / 80% on road.

    soft compound

    Front Tire: Gives better performance than anticipated. Hooks up well on dirt and is surprisingly sticky on pavement for a knobbie. Not too buzzy on pavement. Rear Tire: Wears very quickly on large dualsports. Buzzy on pavement. I now use a TKC front with a K60 rear and they work well together and wear out about the same (8K-9K) mileage. Plus the TKCs seem a little expensive for what you get.

    A great "All Around Tire" with few compromises

    This tire provided just what I was looking for on my adventure touring bike: The maximum possible in off road performance without compromising on road performance. Other than the inevitable increase in tire noise that comes with a nobby tire the TKC 80 gives up very little in the way of on pavement performance compared to a street tire. The rear tire did wear out quickly - it was gone in about 2500 miles of which about 2000 were on pavement.

    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.

    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.

    Great off-road, good on-road

    Probably the third time I've purchased this tire. Currently on my F800GS. Recently this tire got me out of 6 inches of loose sand in Central Oregon on an extended off-road ride. Careful on the turns and take it easy on the wet pavement.

    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.

    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.

    Great all around tire

    I ran the Conti on my KTM 690 Enduro very aggressively for 7 days/1300 miles in the Oregon forests and it worked well. It was mostly fire roads, single track and about 10% pavement. We did not hit any wet ground so I can't comment on that. It hooked about as well as a regular dirt bike knobby yet gripped well on pavement with little vibration and noise. I can't speak completely about tread life but considering the abuse it took, I'd say it's above average. Highly recommended.

    Wore a little fast

    Although I was suprised that the TKC's were as smooth and quiet as they were; the rear wore much faster than I would have guessed considering that they were on KLR650 and I normally kept the speed below 65. Because of my Dempster, Alaska routing I ended up taking the rear TKC off my bike after about 1800 miles on pavement. They probably had another 1500 to 2000 miles left but I was going to be on the Dempster and other gravel roads and wanted taller knobs.

    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!!

    The Best

    This tire rules and will rip the road. Feedback is good considering it's a knobbie..practically sportbike pace canyon riding with no slippage without ample warning. Great in the dirt, but they do seem to pack a tad when things get sticky. Very pricey. And I only get about 3500 miles out of the rear, 7000 out of the front. I will never buy anything else for spirited canyon riding / dual sporting.
