I'll be replacing my OEM tyres with TKC70's for sure.

Back from Sweden and Norway, unfortunately weather was horrendous so had to camp in norway with freezing temperatures, my sleeping bag wasn't up to the job so cut quickly to sweden, which was barely better in terms of temperature.

But 5244 Km done on he TKC70 and apparently front can still do twice that and the rear crazily only lost 0.7 of a milimeter, surely because of the 60Km/h and camping cars in Norway, but that would mean about 40'000 Km would be possible !!!
Never in any weather, temperature, in grass, gravel or badly paved roads, never did I feel the tires let go and I got almost 4 days of non stop rain !
They made the bike very easy, even in camping grounds with wet soil and the fully loaded motorcycle (aprox 40Kg).

Just used the Michelin Anakee Wild front tire and the Mitas E12 Rally Star tire on the rear. Wow! What a great road and offroad combination. The Michelin Anakee Wild has been my favorite tire on the front of the Africa Twin - best road and gravel/trail tire yet.
The Mitas E12 is superb in gravel, muck and mud, wet road performance and general touring.
After 5,500 kilometres the Michelin front has about 40-50% of life left and the Mitas E12 rear has about 1,000 kilometres of useful gravel riding life yet. A really good combination for adventure riding.

Also giving an update on the TKC70, I don't think I'll be putting these on my AT anymore, I barely got to 8000km now and my rear is so square
that I feel it sliding in turns... while the sides of the tire are barely worn.

So while it was great on hard dirt rocks and gravel, as well as the roads all around Europe, but I'll go back to Conti TA2 I guess for good unilateral
wear and tear.

Something like this ?  ;D  (more then 12000 kms...)



Do not worry, some people live in country they can only make square tires !  ;D  ;D

The 90/90 21" was available here in the spring but all sources now show out of stock. I wonder if the tire is going to be updated like they do with their other motorcycle tires (Pilot Road 3, 4, ...)

I have this tire on my 1998 XL600V.
I really like the tire, but it has a narrow width. You can put it on the AT, it makes it a little more tippy in the corners but the tire has good grip on tarmac and extra grip on gravel compared to the TKC on gravel.
