My ride report 'Goldfields' has some muddy stuff on the 1200 - The front TKC still outlasts the rear Heidenau as the 800 is very light on the front tyre. I prefer the more agressive tread on the front wheel (the front Heidenau is quite tame compared to the rear). Some photos and a short comment on the Heidenau's (distances, performance etc) at
Good to know that combo works. I am going to need a new rear much sooner than the front TKC and will probably get the K60 for the back now instead. I wasn't sure about going that route, I've always kept to matched tires in the past, but wasn't thrilled with the idea of getting the quick wearing rear TKC again. I went with the TKCs to replace the original Anakees since I wasn't able to find a supplier to get the K60s quick enough for my summer trip. Still need to pin down a supplier that ships to or is in Canada.
