So.... the consensus for highway and "gravel" roads is Conti TKC70 or TA's ??
What seems best for the twisties and longevity??
Not looking for 50/50

P.S.  yes, Jasper is still here (Vara) ...and also riding Ruby Red  (AT)  ;)

Twisties TA2, they are the ones that made me most confident in leaning far, the TKC are almost as good it's impressive, but to me if
you'll be doing lots of highway, the TKC were too shaky while the TA2 weren't at all and much more stable.

As said previously, absolutely TKC70 is a good multipurpose tire; never had any problem on road, very hot, wet, sleepy (leaves), rainy , alone or two on the bike. makes an excellent job on gravel/ rocks if you do not adopt an enduro rhythm , sure less comfortable in mud condition.
I can say it is perfect on AT (used 2 sets) and as picture above after 12 000 kms and still have made 3000 km more with  front (will change one of these days. )

Excellent. Please let us know what you think. I'm still going on my front tire - almost 9,000 kilometres. Still really great traction. I did about 150 kilometres of gravel, dirt, clay, mud and snow/ice yesterday. Really great tire.

Quietly 300 kms (quietly honed) , nice on road ( not too much turns for instance ride in Camargue), a little bit more noisy as TKC (normal, more knobby) , as said less vibration then TKC (good point  VCIF_ThumbUp ) excellent on gravel ( but not faster then 55km/h -riding with Michelle) ; and perfect in mud (not a long part done ... Try to have a small trip before weather season and some off road session scheduled with Exvara/Jacques  VCIF_ThumbUp
