Nah in a couple of years when you check em out, they'll be mid life or later in the model cycle and so you'd be better off waiting for the brand new model in a few more years. Oh hang on, you won't buy new model because they're new and will be updated in a few years....oh dear

As for never buying first year model, just in case you missed it the year is 2012 not 1974 and we are not talking about BMW....

about to do some serious KMs on a 1/5 lap of OZ alot of dirt , Flinders Ranges, maybe the Birdsville track

I have a near new TKC80 from the front looking for a hard wearing rear

I had a TKC80 on the rear of the strom but it lasted only 4k km

been running K60 on the 950Adv and one set on the tiger, happy until a threw the tiger down on the wet tar

whats the go for something chunky on the rear that will last 6k (hopefully no mud)

Cry Kenda big block rear

]Reports are they see 5000-7000ks

I had a loan bike (tiger 800) for a week and it had big block rear and Karoo front. Took it on trails the sat and chasing road bikes Sunday (well they chased me in the end). Very good combo. Was confident on wet tar leaning over if ridden smooth.[/QUOTE]

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

Hi guys, I've tried them all and the E-09 Dakar has lasted the longest out of all the big block tyres, they have only been available in 140/80-17 but I believe a 150 is coming soon. The E-10 wont last and melts on the black stuff when pushed. The Karoo's need to be conditioned when new, are a great allrounder and are confidence inspiring on the bitumen, I'm yet to try the new Scorpion Rally's.
