super tire

I am on my second set of these tires on my F800GS, good all around traction in sand and mud, great on hard pack, LOUD on the pavement but worth the noise for the performance of a 50\50 tire. Changed out rear with 3500 mi. and still had knob left, front at 5k w\knob left. I would recommend to anyone who wants a DS tire at a very affordable price.

Great Tire

I have a 2004 DRZ400s with the normal mods and this is the second time around with this tire...got 5500K from the last one with 60/40 road/dirt and couldn't find a reason to go for a different tire. Does really well both on and off the road. Price was cheap and performance has been great...highly recommended.

Awesome tire.

This is the tire that is perfect for the way I ride. A little squirrelly on pavement at first but a hundred miles takes care of that. Fantastic in the dirt, mud and desert.

My KLR loves these!

The price was right, the shipping was fast, and after a about 100 Miles the tires are perfect. What else could you ask for? For those of you reading about these tires being squirrely or squirmy, I have not experienced any of this. I am a 285lb rider with all the extra weight I can carry, and not once have these scared me in a turn. You may need to adjust your braking technique, the back tends to lock up if you slam on the brakes. But it's a motorcycle, they do that...

Excellent 50/50 tire for DR650

I use my bike about 50/50 for both open road and rocky, steep, technical trails. About 2,000 miles on them so far. The rubber compound Kenda uses is very good...particularly on rock. One of the few co's that still use real tree rubber in their tires...which is still the best rubber for wet surface traction in this man's opinion.

LONG DISTANCE TIRE 10,000 MILES! (REAR Tire)

Yes, 10K miles on rear tire. I crossed Siberia to Norway (with a 3-week detour in Mongolia and the Gobi Desert). This is an amazing tire for wear. I actually carried a spare tire on this Russia crossing and didn't replace the Kenda 270 till I was at the 10K mile mark. I have run these 5-6K on rear in British Columbia...all miles on logging roads with sharp-pointed rock. Impressive tire in my opinion.

Kenda 270

I bought a 460 for my KTM 250 and a 510 for my Yamaha XT350. The KTM is used for off road rocks, dirt, roots, ruts and gravel. The XT is used for asphalt, gravel, roots, rocks. Very nice tire for all conditions. Has a Trial tire type pattern with a little more aggressive gripping in mud, snow, and clay and even grass.

Great tire

I have been running these tires on a klr 250 for a few months and I have to say I am empressed. No problem on the road and best in the dirt and rocks. They get a nice humm going on the road but doesnt bother me I only ride pavment 20 percent of the time. The rear is alot wider than stock so it did rub my muffler at first but I added some washers and longer bolts on the muffler hangers and was good to go after that. Over all I will get these tires again.

Great Tire (KTM 625 SXC)

The tire gets great traction on logging roads and trails. A little load on the pavement but corners well on all terrains. The only down fall is mud. The tread tends to get clogged up easy but if you just build up some RPM's it will clean out.

Kenda on XR650L

Great grip, have to watch the twist of the throttle now. The front end seems to come up a lot easier now. Fun around corners, not affraid to drag the knees on the street now. Another wonderful job by the motorcycle Super store.
