TKC-80 is a good tire for the front but does not handle as well on the street and you will burn it up quick at 80 MPH. Just my opinion.
10k on a rear and 18.5k on a front???!!!

Great google moogly you must be smooth. I'm ecstatic if I can get a k60 to go 3500 on the rear. The k60 rear and tkc front has been a good combo on the big bike. I like the 606 on the front better if I am mostly off road.

For high mileage I use the TKC80 front and the Heidenau K60 rear. I can get 4-5000 out of this combination.

For serious off road riding I prefer the Dunlop 606 up front with a Dunlop 908rr rear. I'm lucky to get 2500 miles out of this combination.

Just mounted this Motoz HT Tractionator. Head out in the morning & plan putting maybe 500 on it in next two days. Will see how it wears?

The tubeless k-60 seems to wear much longer than the tube version. And yes I am smooth.

Lemme know how the HT work (handle/turns/wear/etc...), I had the I/T last year and was worth the s**t.

I think you'll like it cause I got a rider with us in the Grand Canyon Ride 2013, who had it on brand new on a CR450x I looked at it the end of the ride it was barely showing any wear and it handle very good to his review.

The Coke Ovens

Last week some friends from NE came down and I took them to the Coke Ovens, we found an easier way to them. Wish it had been before we found the hard way, we came down N. Martinez Spring Trail, it's rated a 4 in an off road book, I think that is for airplanes. But we made it and a guy at the ovens said how to get out which takes you west to where the Gila hits the stone mountain and takes a left turn to the south. You go under a railroad bridge and end up on the Cochran road after running a wash for awhile.

Tom, I'm interested in your review of that tire as well. I'd be great to hear your thoughts after a few miles.

Is anyone planning on going to Desert Daze in the end of March? I will be heading down Thursday and leaving sometime on Saturday.

This will be my first overnight on the motorcycle, so I am looking at getting a bag for the back of my bike. I am sure I could Ghetto Rig my backpacking pack onto the rear, but I like the idea of the Giant Loop bags.

I am trying to decide between the Coyote model and the Great Basin. Do any of you have experience/recommendations for rear bags. I want to be able to carry enough gear for a 2-3 night stay...

That doesn't mean a ton of clothes. I find that a strong smell will keep the mosquitos away.
