Aaarg...too many choices! So basically need the best tire for off road travel, I guess will be mainly loose gravel stuff and also need to be good on wet road and not noisy...and durable...ugh

They works good on gravel but not so good on wet grass or mud, would have been better under these considerations with for an example Karoo 1 on the front wheel.

You should check the Mitas E07, i even know the dealer in barcelona if you want the hook up.
Its cheap for a pair (160 euros) and in my 950 with lots of wheelies and agresive riding i get out of them around 8.000 to 10.000 km.
The only thing is that in the rain you have to be carefull, but all in all i think is the best do-it-all tire, plus they are cheap.

Hola..I just ordered myself a pair of K60 Scouts online last night
193€/pair+32 shipping...read a few good reviews about them and they seem to last long time as well...on 1200gs at least:) we'll see how they last on my Katoom with my light throttle action

The K-60s are good on the road, very good in rain, work well on packed dirt and gravel, not so good on mud. They wear very well - like 7,000 miles on the rear on a 950.

Can't complain with 7000k's! You think they slide sideways a bit in the mud or just nit much grip. What front you using?

I love the K-60 but I only got 3500 miles out of mine on my Vee 1000 with its 95 horsepower. I can imagine my same riding style on a bike with 150

Yeah I found the same with the E10's.. but they were good in the mud as well.. only downside was they lasted just under 5000km for the back on a f650gs.. (front was ok) But at around 3500 to 4000 they were useless in rain or in deep mud..

They plug up rapidly and then just slide around. It may have something to do with the type and consistency of the mud too. I only ran mine over WV forest mud - clay covered with loam.

Initially I have what was left of a Mefo Explorer on the front and I replaced it with a TKC 80. Supposed to be the hot setup according to inmates who ride the Rockies. I got 7K because I wasn't deliberately spinning the tire and over half that mileage was on hard roads.

What kind of pressure would you use on the TKC80 with the 1190 ? As per the guide or less ? My dealer gave the bike to me with 10 PSI less than user guide, saying that it's better for knobby tyres (noise/vibes & longer life).
