TKC-80 wear 800gs

I've run 2 TKC-80s and both of them had the side by side middle blocks run down to nothing somewhere between 6-8000 miles. They have plenty of blocks everywhere else and I don't see any performance degredation so I just keep on going on them. The first set I wanted to get two rear TKC's out of the deal and now this time I have a Tourance on the rear so I'm pushing them both to 9-10k miles before I swap them out for something else (probably the K60's since everyone loves them so much it seems).

This isn't the best picture but if you look closely you can see the one on the bike has worn through the "pair" and the single block is still nice and tall.

I thought I'd take a couple more pictures since I'm on my next set of shoes and the front is also about at this same point as the one above. Hopefully these give a better view of what happens.

adĚvenĚture exciting or very unusual experience.
hat a great 40,000 mile adventure on the trusty F800GS. Looking forward to the next 40k.
