I run a TKC80 front now for everything, then swap the rear depending on what I am going to be doing.
+1 it's simply the best 50/50 tire you can get. Period. Once you get used to it you can lean till your pegs scrape provided you have set the right tire pressure. It does well off roads as long as it is not wet and/or muddy. I think the fron tire is the best semi-enduro tire ever. Its negative points are: expensive, weird on wet pavement and the rear does not last much longer than 3500km's.
