Most excellant tire

Have gone through 4 sets of this tire since I discovered them. Excellent street manners, can easily remove any hint of chicken strip if you are up for it. Last as long as a tire should, any longer and you are running a tire made of stone. Will run them as long as they continue to make them. Highly recommend. There may be a better tire, but not in this price range. Wet traction is about what you would expect from a full knob, not good.

Worst tire I have ever ran

These tires might be fine on a big bike with tubeless wheels, but my experience with them on a KLR has been terrible. They offer no confidence on any terrain besides pavement. They are as bad on gravel as they are in the mud. On dry dirt they are manageable, but still not that good. I consider tires a cheap investment. If a good set of tires can save you from crashing, then its money well spent. These tires may cause you crash, I suggest if you have a bike with tube type rims you pick something else.

Great tire for the price

Great tire for gravel, two track or single track. I have done a bit of dry, twistie riding with these tires and they gripped and rode much better than I thought they would. They also don't hum like I expected. The grip is great in most conditions. The tread life is not so great on dry pavement but it is not really designed for it. In 400 miles on pavement I measured and lost 1/8" on the diameter and the blocks start at about 7/16" or a bit less.

Kenda K784

I have the front and backs for my bike. I cannot comment on durability yet as I have only 500 miles on them. However, they are outstanding in gravel and sticky on the tarmac. They are somewhat noisy but I expected that.

Big Block on Big GS

I use Kenda Big Blocks on my BMW R1200GS when I need the extra traction in sand or dirt. I use these tires mainly because they are cheaper than similar tires. I get about 6500 miles out of a set- a little more out of the front and a little less on the rear tire. Even though they are the least expensive off road tire, they have pretty good dry and wet pavement traction. They are noisy and rough on the highway.

Kenda big block

Really like this tire on my strom 650. I run lots of gravel roads and a fair amount of pave connecting. Tires work really well in the gravel. Much more confidence than the trail wings I had been running. Wear life is average, but for the price, I'll definitely live with it. Recommend.

Kenda Big Block is a blockbuster

The tire handles great on and off road. It has gripped everything I've run through. I've only had the Big Block on just over a month and haven't had the opportunity to get it wet. So far I love it!

Sever cracking

On my Tiger 955i with me being a heavy rider. The tires feel good on road, gravel and packed dirt roads. Within a few hundred miles nearly all the knobs front and rear had cracking around them, sever cracking on the rear. Enough so that I was uncomfortable and swapped them out by 600 miles. Tread was going fats too. Looked great and decent performance otherwise. May be better on a lighter bike & rider combo.

Kenda big block

This tire wore out in 3000 miles. To it's credit, it had good wet traction on mountain roads. Riding from corn country to CO proved to be hard on tread life when the temps exceeded 100 degrees. Under 25 mph I could feel the big blocks. I used the tire on a Tiger 800XC. Kenda should educated the parts counter people and stick to dirt only tires.

About $.50 per mile of treat life

Paid $140 for the 150/70 18 for a KTM 950 Adventure, and got about 300 miles of mixed on/off road use at Death Valley out of it before it was pretty much shot. I wouldn't recommend this tire due to the very short tread life.

Low mileage

Just to echo the other reviews, the rear tire wears fast.

They are a wild ride DRZ400SM

500 mi round trip on the Majove Rd I road through washes, streams, dirt roads, rocky roads, street/hwy and deep sand. The guys behind me said that looks like a wild ride. Blocks are big but the tread is not deep enough to warrant it so they don't dig in. I would rate them as 50/50. On the street they grab good the rubber is soft and the blocks are big so there is plenty of rubber on the asphalt. If you plan on doing more riding in the dirt than street you will need a more aggressive tire.

Was hoping for more. Front tire works well a little disappointed in the rear performance and tread life.

Not best for KLR

My daily commute ranges from rutted steep fire break to interstate freeway so I am searching for the do it all champion. Though this tire corners brilliantly in all conditions, it’s straight up stability in gravel or pavement is vague and twitchy. For me this tire ranks third behind the TKC-80 with the T-63 being the best so far. Please save me a set and I'll wear this K-784 out as fast as I can.

K784 big block

Overall traction is good..mud, dirt, asphalt. Bad news is the tire only went 1200 miles, the tire is also kind of smallish.. the smallest 130/80-17 I have ever mounted on my x-country.. looked a little goofy. the big block front is still in good shape.. have only good words for it. going back to the trusty T-63 on the rear.
