The issue is I'm not eager to try TKC, because my logic sugests that being the same company as the TA2, there is a good chance the rubber and wear would behave in a same fashion, so going another brand seems more logical !


the tkc 70 is a very different tire than the TA2.

Confirmed David ! I've ride my friend's AT with TA2 on some roads in Massif Central these last days... Very different from TKC70 !!!  Not so easy to put on the angle, not so easy to keep on the angle, not so easy to change angles ... He makes a very big comma on wet tarmac, coming to our meeting  :-[  we have to ride under snowy conditions (perhaps some pictures soon ) ; absolutely no problem with TKC during these duo ridings .
Alone we go faster, together we go further

I do not ride fast, I ride far / I'm not lost, I'm just exploring

thanks, zebulon. Yes, very different on road performance between the two tires on the same bike. Also the TKC70 wears longer. cheers David.

My experience is the The TKC70 is more sure on gravel than the 80/20 tires like the TA2.

 Oh yes MrKiwi -- the nearest my AT gets to the greenery is using the Derbyshire and Yorkshire Dales single track roads that have
 a green centre line through lack of use  ;) -- by the way are you the same Kiwi that contributes to the Tiger 800 site ?

After some 2000km around Switzerland, here's new feedback on the TA2 !

I was wrong, apparently the beginning of the tire wore a lot but now it's stabilized, so from what I see 9000km should be possible on the rear and 12000km on the front, speaking of new tires of course.
Though the tires perform absolutely great on tarmac, with 2.2bar front and 2.6bar rear, there is one thing i experienced many times that bothers me quite a lot. the tire will absolutely slide on sewer plates or metal seals on bridges and that's even the other day, 31 degrees and sunny so that's not very nice and I'm a bit annoyed because otherwhise can't complain !
