I may have missed your post about it but I'm curious as to why you decided against the TKC-70's?

I have the TKC-70 waiting for my own fall National Forest exploration.

The Roadtec 01 was purchased for riding with the group on 99% paved roads.

3,704 Miles

Invisible tire, in that traction is never an issue, cold or hot, wet or dry, paint or tar snakes, etc...

The wear bars are right near the top, so no more than 4,000 miles for me.

Funny to see how the sides have worn the same as the center.

Most of the use has been on very abrasive roads, and ridden with a heavy throttle when possible.

Is it just me or is your front tire very trapezoidal? Flat in the middle with flats on each side. The rear looks very evenly worn.

The front tire doesn’t seem that way when casually looking at it.

Corners very well, though I’m not scraping any metal on corners.

Heavy braking causes uneven wear on all front tires, this one does appear to have some.

If you head to the Sierras I will privately share the secret road where you too can explore your cornering ability at speed. A road that calls bikes like the XR.

Best tire yet.

Most miles on abrasive chip & seal backroads.

Always sticky, even on wet roads and tar snakes.

Note that the tire saw endless corners too. Edge to edge use.

Perfect tire for these kind of roads:

I concur. I put these tires one and last one I hit some local mountain roads. I still don't have the skill to touch the elephants at the edge (it's very close on the left side) but I always felt confident going around the many turns.

Great suggestion!
