Yep the k60 easily made the whole trip. I took them off after 12000 miles, the front is 1/2 worn and the rear 2/3 worn. To me worn out means no tread left in the center. My friend had them on his R1200GSA for a while. That bike wore them out much faster, the rear would not have made the trip. interesting as we both rode together...same roads same speeds.

They are much better than the typical Tourances/anakees etc on dirt / gravel and especially mud. they do have some bite where the other turn in to slicks.

On the pavement they are slippery on wet roads...as compared to tourances which I normal use. They are very hard rubber to get the high miles. I do not doing aggressive riding in the twiesties evan on dry pavement with them.

Yes they vibrate at some speeds....ie semi knobbiest ...duh!

I had them up to 100 a couple of times....no problems.
My friend on the GSA..got into a mild tank slapper (bad head shake)...which he controlled...but he took them off right after that!! Note these tires were pretty well worn at that time.
