Heidenau K60 Scout Front Tire
best tire i have owned
this front tire is amazing. I mounted it to my xr650l with minimal trouble was a little hard as it was tubeless type there was a little bit of a issue to get the bead set. but after its on you will be surprised I had a front end vibration at high speeds with other tires on the xr650l even when balanced. after mounting this tire the vibration was gone was thinking of getting a fork brace or a fork dampeners but that's no longer needed. I just needed a good set of tires.
these tires hook up amazing in the dirt snow and road cant believe I lived with those cheap tires all this time. Tire wear looks to be amazing. I think these will last twice as long ''at the least'' as the k270s I had mounted before. I highly recommend getting the 90/90-21 for the xr650l. all my thoughts of getting upside down forks or all the other farkles to fix vibrations and handlebar oscillation are now gone.
also be sure to mount the correct direction and line up dots with valve stem

Replaced 90/10 OEM Tires
I put a pair of Scout K60s on my BMW F800GS Adventure just prior to a trip to Death Valley. I trailered the bike to the park and then put 700 paved and off road miles on the tires. In the dirt the tires are great with good traction and very stable over varied dirt, gravel, and mud conditions I encountered. On the pavement they also performed well with good handling through turns. The only issue was the front tire noise on the pavement which I expected based on other reviews. The noise varies from unnoticeable to significant depending on the speed and pavement surface. I wore ear plugs on pavement which makes the noise acceptable. The tires are heavy duty and handled the sharp loose rocks I encountered without any sign of distress.

These tires have come highly recommended
Just installed on my 2013F700GS. To be fair to the tires, it's February in New York. Cold and poor road conditions are not the best time to review tires. So far after 100 miles I don't feel confident with these tires, the solid center strip might be why. Dry conditions they find every crack and wet the rear feels loose. Im hoping they feel better once broken in.

Overall A Good Tire
I have mixed feelings about this tire. While at around 200 miles I had a pretty scary slide on them on concrete in rain on a commute into work. I didn't crash but I also didn't execute a flawless left hand turn (against traffic) either... Fast forward about 2k miles and these tires have given me no more issues. They don't exactly shine on any given surface, but they also don't struggle. As for performance, on dirt anyway, they are average to good, on street they are good to very good. On wear - I'm at around 2k miles on them and for the most part they seem to be wearing pretty well. The front will easily out last the rear by 2x. The rear tire is still doing good, but even with the hardened rubber in the center and solid tread pattern, it is starting to wear a bit flat due to mainly street use. These are very good tires, but for the money it may be worthwhile to keep your options open and shop around.

I have over 1000 miles on these tires now and they still look brand new. They offer great traction on and off the pavement.

Great tire good mileage
Going to my second set, put over 18,000 miles on this set! Great wear, little noisy but overall good road traction and works pretty good off road too. Hats off to Revzilla, got the order quickly and without any hassle.
