Looks interesting - who knows?
Looks like competition for the TKC 80? Much more of a knobby than the TKC 70.

Oh my, these tires look much better in person.

Pirelli Diablo Rosso III on the bike now. About 1,000 miles.

BTW: The rear tire is oriented properly.

Sorry, but these tires are an advance purchase for my April coast ride. No ride report until I return in May. I expect these to be the perfect tires for poorly paved California backroads.

Sorry but I need to head to California with brand new tires. That's a ride rule.

So with the new ride date of the end of May, my report will be in June.

Lots of road repairs needed out there, and snow to melt from a few passes on the route. All forcing a ride delay.

With all the very positive reviews on AdvRidee you can feel confident that this is the best compromise between a TKC80 full knobby with short tread life and a real street tire that doesn't work on easy dirt.

American Motorcycle Tire delivered these to me at a value price, making experimenting with the 70s affordable.

Researching over on AdvRider, there are comments about high speed wobble from the front tire.

Continental says that the ideal GS air pressure is 32/36.

On our bike that would probably translate to 32/35 or 6?

Anyways, people also say that at 32 psi for the front tire there is zero issue with wobble.

Air pressure is critical for every tire. Too bad there is no easy source for the manufacturer researched tire pressures for each bike weight.

When I install my TKC-70s it will be 32/36 psi.

Absolutely amazingly long tread life from these tires. No way do I expect more than 6,000 though.
