Heidenau K60 Scout Front Tire
These tire wear well & provide good traction on gravel roads
This is my third set of Heidenau K60 tires for my Tenere. They are the best I have found for both paved and non paved roads.

Outstanding tread life!
The lifespan of this tire is going to be crazy long for an aggressive threaded tire!! I've put 1500 miles on it so far and it literally still looks like it did the day I put it on, and that's on a heavy Super Tenere. Highway handling is solid and predicable, off-road is sure footed in dirt and gravel roads, though it does tend to clog in deep mud. But so does everything in this Alabama red clay mud that I ride in. Overall a great tire both in performance and in value!

Happy with it after a few miles!
Gives good feed back on and off road, the first few hundred miles it gives a little vibration at slow speed due to the tread design. All in all great rubber to choose!!!

This tire will be the only tire I will run on my super tenere
After 1500 miles I can not believe the confidence that this tire gives on road. No matter what the road conditions are ( hot, 80+ cold 20 degrees or lower , it works rain or shine). I have been riding parts of the continental divide and the Colorado alpine loop. This tire has been performing very closely to my dirt bike tires. Only exception is the 300 pound weight difference in the bikes. I can only praise this tire. And after 1500 miles it still looks new and I expect to get at least 10,000 miles out of this tire. Cheap price tag for the mileage and sport tire feel

Great off-road grip and road manners
I enjoy having this tire on my F800GS. I've ridden with them on in various road surfaces and off-road conditions (except snow) and with the right tire pressure, they do grip and grab. Tire appears to have a harder compound than most. Especially more than the loved TKC-80. They are a bit more, but worth it. I have a little over 1000 miles on them and no noticeable wear yet. It is a bit buzzy on the road, but it's manners are great. Nice looking and aggressive tread pattern too!

Very nice adventure tire
Can´t speak about durability since I have only used it for 1000 km (that´s the reason for the 4 stars), but so far this is a very good tire for both on and off-road (bought both front and rear tire). I was expecting a poor performance on pavement considering the treads, but they offer a good grip. Anyway, keep in mind this is not a slick tire!

I ran the stock Bridgestone Trailwings on my 2008 DL650 Vstrom for a long time, on road, on dirt fire roads and off road. They felt great on the street and really bad in dirt. You either had traction, or none at all. Very binary, either on or off, no in between. Took the K60 off road a few times already in some hard pack and deep sand. Amazing grip and those side bites really make a nice difference in the deeper stuff. Very predictable and incremental when you start to lose traction vs. just losing it all at once like the stock Trailwings. I am still getting used to it on the street, feels less "planted" than the Trailwings, but once you get used to it, not bad.

Great ride with excellent grip on and off-road.
Very happy with the handling charastics of the tire on and off road. Very predictable in any situation I have thrown at it.
