These should hook up just a little better than the garbage stock tires

That would be fun. I may have some time in July or Aug. I'll see what my schedule looks like after we're done in AK and get back down to NV.

It sure is, I have been wrapped up in a C.E.R.T. training course the last few weekends though and haven't been able to get out.

Last week we learned triage and basic disaster medical treatment. Both valuable skills if you are going to roll with UpST8!

This Saturday is search and rescue, so once again...

All kidding aside though, I have been learning good stuff and its good to be able to give back to the community. Also, I hope I never need it but a bunch of this could be good to know while riding in the middle of nowhere.

Not to mention I got a neat green hard hat and whistle!

Did not want...think the TKC80 will hook up better in the dirt. Was going to do TKC up front and Heineken K60 on the back, but saw these Mitas and said "ooooooooo"

I'm now sporting a set of Mitas E-07's on the F650GS. There is a chance that you'll need to replace the TKC before the Mitas based on what mileage others are getting.

Keep the TKC aired up and stay on the throdle,,it'll last as long if not longer then the K60.
Even on big bikes i run a dirt tire up front and a DS tire on rear,and get bout the same wear.
I ran a set of TKC's at Roaming Rally on a 1100GS.The front looked good after 1700 miles,the rear was shot.The rear also started shreading knobs on the pavement at high speeds.
I ran a K60 on a 950ADV at Cromag this year,and did the hero sections with 7 Lc8's.Its was good single track even on a little bike.The only complaint was traction on the steeper hills.
The guys i ride with Boatman,etc have been liking the K60/K70 but i dont think anyones seen more then 4000 miles on one,on KTM SE's,and ADV's.
Just say'n.
