Yeah, I usually got between 3-4k on when I had TKCs on the 640a at around 55hp. I think I've been a bit power happy for the last 700 miles on the f8 and am going through the TKC pretty quick.
I still have the scorpions the bike came with that I will mount for the first leg of my Alaska trip in June so I will probably just bite the bullet and get another rear TKC for the BC part.
I don't feel totally comfortable experimenting with new tires while traveling. I'm sure the Kendas are of good quality and characteristic but I know what a TKC feels like at the limit, on wet stuff and everywhere else.
However, when I get back I'll be out of money and rubber so I'll probably mount a set of the Kendas.
