poor off road
I put this tire on my klr650 to replace a shinko 705 tire. road performance is smooth, however do not purchase this tire if you plan to do any off roading or mud. Admittadly my bike is very heavy. the moment I put it on any mud or wet grass it just spins and spins and slides side to side. I got stuck in my own back yard turning it around on a rainy day. It couldnt get up a tiny embancment to the driveway, just tore up the grass and slid around in place. I had to get off and help push it up a 4 inch lip. Never had traction issues on any other tire. Very disapointed.

good 80/20
Replaced OEM Conti TA2 (KTM ADV 1190) with these. Better on fire trails, no real noticeable loss of road performance. A bit more squirrely on paved grooved road areas than the conti TA2, but still great traction.
I read about some problems with these on forums when I was deciding, but I'm VERY HAPPY with the TKC70's for road/ fire trail blend for my make/model. I would use these again.
RMATV had a great price and great service.

Tread patern looks good.
I am not able to rate the tread life, wet traction, grip traction at this time due to the fact that I only have 30 miles on the tire. I have been using Shinko 505sand only get about 4000 miles on the rear. I hope that this tire will get around 7000 to 8000 to justify the extra cost.

1190 perfection for me
Love them for 1190, which I use for sport touring, and hauling butt around the west. Decent life (about 5,000 miles) and I have a heavy right wrist! Really good on dirt roads and used on some 4 wheel drive roads and works OK. I trust this tire 100%

Major upgrade
Better in every way than the OEM Dunlops (that wore out in 3600 easy miles). These tires are fantastic and balanced easily. They were a real pain to mount. I installed the tires on a 2017 Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin. Highly recommended.

New Purchase - Ready to roll.
I just purchased this tire as a replacement for a Tourance. I like the tread pattern. I can't give much of a review till I put some miles on it, but wait till spring. Tire price was very competitive. Tire was build about 1 year ago, so no old stock here!

Great duel sport tire.
Installed on my 2016 KLR 650. What a difference from stock. Quiet and more grip, especially on damp roads. However I do not recommend for mud or sand. I got myself into trouble with a full load and deep sand. All most went down. Not great in greasy mud either.

This is my 3rd tkc70 rear. I've have never actually worn one out. The last 2 were replaced at about 12k, they could have easily gone a couple more but it's always nice to have fresh meat on the longer trips. They get great traction, handle and ride great.

I Have an fjr 1300 . I like run fast on road . so spend time on gravel and off road conditions .. this type of tire looks like something I need .. I didn't want to spend that much . but If so I want it to last .would this work?
Jordan W on Jun 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: FJR on the dirt? These tires work well with packed dirt as on fire dp trails and forest roads. NOT ON SAND or IN MUD. I don't know of anybody using these tires on a street bike. TKC 70 are used on scrambler and adventure type bikes for the most part. Use what you need. I get 4 to 5 thousand on a set depending on how often I ride aggressively through the twistys. 2014 GS 1200
