Heidenau K60 Scout Front Tire
The best tire ever!
I'm on my 3rd one. I get about 5K on rear and about 8-10K on front. I have a 2013 KLR 650 and will never put another tire on it... EVER!!! It is a very expensive tire and my local shop charges $40 to put it on, so I'm in almost $200. Ouch... But worth it. If I bought a tire from them the instal would be free, but they don't carry it. So Revzilla it is...and always will be. This tire RULES!!!!

Great dual sport tire!
This tire is great for the person that rides on and off road. I would say it is a better off road tire than on road tire. There were some vibrations at various speeds and had some road noise, but that was to be expected by how aggressive the tires are. After about two hundred miles the noise and vibration started to go away.

Great Tire...so far
I recently switched to the K60 for my 2004 R1150GS Adventure. The tire handles we'll and looks good. I have put just over 800 miles on the tire and there is no appreciable wear. So far, I have had the tire on asphalt and gravel roads, both in wet and dry conditions. They perform as expected. Good tire...I'll buy them again.

Finally a tire that lives up to the Hype
I have tried so many tires trying to get the perfect mix of street, off road and longevity, FINALLY a ADV tire that lives up to the reputation. I have had the K60s on my 01 1150 gs now for about 3000 mile (usually at this milage I am past the wear bars and looking for a new rear tire) and I feel that they have another 3-4k to go.
Overall good tire offroad in the sand, gravel, fire roads and some two track (Single Track and MUD are a little sketch on the these but doable if you remember the golden rule of TWIST THE GRIP AND LET IT RIP)
Over all I am very pleased and will be running another set of these on the next go round.

impressed with quality and on road traction maintaining deep tread for off road digging

Great all around front tire
2nd k60 on front of my R1200GS, 14k from first. Great on and off-road tire. Good wet traction on front k60. It also does well on dry twisties when riding hard with sport bike friends. Off-road gravel and rocky terrain traction is excellent. No real nasty mud experience. Seems to do very good in deep sand to keep the front from washing out.

Very good 50/50
Good traction in all off road conditions except mud.
Surprisingly good on pavement.
Waiting for more miles to judge wear,
but so far seems above average for this type of tire.

Outstanding 50% / 50% Adventure Tire
Like the K60 rear tire I reviewed, this tire is not for the people riding the freeways exclusively. A lot of other pavement tires are better for that. This one howls at speed and it "seeks" on grooved pavement--not much, but it does a little bit.
That's the negative. Now the positive--
This tire is in the very top tier of outstanding tires for people who ride on the pavement to get the back country. I ride a DL650 adventure bike fully loaded for camping, etc. Outstanding!
On gravel, slimy black mud, dirt, rocks--I couldn't get it to disappoint me. Drive it into a rut on purpose and then drive it right back up the side of the rut. Or cruise along a little ridge without falling down into a rut.
Excellent tire to get you out to the back country, into the back of the back country, and then depend on it to get you back out and home again.
I don't know about wear, it's still new to me.
