    Good compromise 60-40 tire
    I've used this tire on my 950SE, 990 Dakar, and 1190 Adventure. Works very well for the kind in off pavement 2-track I mostly do while not giving up a lot of street traction wet and dry and providing decent wear (5-6k front, 3.5-4k rear). Gets" bumpy" from the front when it scallops, but not much performance degradation.

    This is my 2nd front for this tire. I have never repeated a front tire on my KLR before.....this is my first time. I really love the handling on twisty pavement and it grabs the dirt very well! I highly recommend giving this tire a try.
    Great riding tires!  Very strong sidewall for adventure riding!
    I love the look of this tire!  Looks like it belongs on a tractor, but is super smooth.
    Well planted in the twisties.....gives plenty of confidence.

    Tire feels great on the tarmac and the dirt. It performs very well in sand and mud. It gave me over 11k miles.

    Front TKC70 has a design flaw...
    Both the front and rear set of the TKC70s. The front had the challenge most complained about it as it cased a lot handlebar vibration. Returned the front and went back to the Karoos. RMs was great in assisting to get it returned etc.

    Little off road performance
    This is on a KTM 530 for Dual Sporting. I picked them up to ride out a few hundred miles do some little offroad camping. If you plan to do anything more than hard pack dirt road this is not the tire for you. Its expensive for the lack of off road performance. Looks good and mean but doesn't do great offroad. Zero traction if its muddy or wet. Slips in a turn with no warning. Rear spins very easy. Great on road with good street traction.

    This is my second set awesome tires.
    This is my second front tire and they are awesome tires. I recommend them to my friends all the time and they like them too. They give you good traction paved roads in all conditions wet, dry. They work very well in the dirt wet, dry, mud and sand. I put about 8500 miles on the front and still have a little tread left. they work very well on my 2014 Triumph tiger 800 xc

    All hail the magic conch...
    Great results. I replaced a front Pirelli Rallycross on my '11 KTM 690. Tracks great, it's quiet too. I love off road riding, however, I spend more time on pavement. Gets me where I need to be with a smile on my face.

    True 50/50 dual-sport tire
    Just bought my second set of these for my KLR650, but the first set still has many miles to go. Just got back from a trip to the hills in Arkansas where we saw every on and off-road surface from fast, tight paved twisties to muddy, rocky climbs and stream crossings. Even when well-worn, the Karoo 3s behaved themselves perfectly on wet and dry pavement and dug in like a mountain goat off-road. I'm also getting far better life than I've ever gotten with a knobby, and it looks like they'll match or exceed what I've gotten from street tires. The only downsides are the ones you'd expect from any tire with such an open tread -- yep, they're noisy, and yep, you can feel vibration at slower speeds. I don't give a hoot, and I don't see why anyone would care what a tire sounds like, but it's something people mention.
