I agree with BD! TKC's wear really fast and don't work that well on any surface for me. The only serious crash I ever had in 50k miles on my 950 was on TKCs.

You met one of my riding buddies yesterday. I was in my FJ with a Moto jack. 5 of us rode in the wet leaves covering owl sh*t. Still fun though.
