Heidenau K60 Scout Rear Tire
Long milage 7000Miles on this tire in all conditions!
Put on both rear and front K 60 Scout tires before leaving Montana for Alaska on my KLR-650. First day and three weeks of rain and snow later we reached Prudhoe Bay AK. The Dalton highway was mud from start to finish. In all we put on over 7000 miles. The rear tire worked great in all conditions including snow (4-6") and 6-10" of mud. They do get a little flat near their end life but didn't seem to effect cornering on the pavement. The front still looks brand new. The front tire seemed to dig in somewhat on really loose sand and dirt, but was easy to adapt too. This leg completed my ride to both the north and south tips of the Americas! These were the best tires I used on the whole 25,000 mile journey.

Great 50/50 tire
I ride a Yamaha Super Tenere and put new front and back Scouts. I haven't taken them off road yet, but they are much smoother on pavement then I had expect. No real road noise or vibration when you are at speed. Great tire and they look great!

A better road tire than it appears
I purchased a used GS that needed some new tires. I road the existing 90/10 style tires that came on the bike and knew they weren't aggressive enough for fire roads. I was concerned that a 50/50 tire would be too big of a compromise on the road, but reviews I read and the Revzilla video explained the wide center pattern was designed for on road stability. I've had the bike on gravel, dirt, interstate, and mountain roads now and I'm very pleased. They stick as well as the 90/10 on dry mountain roads, smooth at 70mph, but a little slippery on wet mountain roads. After riding on every surface I anticipate being on with my GS, I am very pleased with my purchase of the K60 Scout tires through Revzilla.

Great on street and dirt
These tires replaced my Dunlop TR91 Trailmax tires. The Heidenaus feel more secure on the pavement and way less squirming about on the dirt. I went for a ride today on wet city streets and they felt more grippy than my old Trailwings ever did. Plus the chunky tread looks great on my Scrambler. Highly recommended.

Good tire, but be prepared for low-speed vibration your first few miles.
Purchased to use on F800GS with TKC80 upfront. I replaced a TKC80 on rear as it was worn and I am doing more on-road riding. With the first miles I experienced a good deal of vibration at low-speed. So much so it was causing the ABS to act weird...like when riding on washboard terrain. It is better after some miles, but still has vibration below 20mph. Rides well otherwise...on and off road. I do a lot of dirt roads and it works well. Nice all-around tire for me. If you have an F800GS you might experience the same. There is a thread on ADVrider that discusses. Glad I read it. Otherwise I would have thought something was up. I will give a long-term review after more miles.

I put these on my Tiger800XC to replace the OEM tires over 9K miles ago. There is some bumpiness at low speed on the highway.
I put these on because, living at Lake Tahoe and riding all over northern NV and CA, on both highway and some dirt/gravel we have all types of weather. Trips from Tahoe to Seattle, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley and Moab with rain, snow, hot and cold, slow and cruising at 80-90 mph these have been great. The front looks like new after 9K miles, but the rear is nearing the end of the trail. That's probably because I'm usually fully loaded with gear on the longer rides. I'm about to replace the rear with the same tire. I get some bounce at low speeds on pavement but that smooths out at higher speeds.

I have the 150 size tire on a GSA 1200, which we all know is a heavy and powerful bike.
5000 miles on the tires and they look to be good for another several thousand. I've been in heavy rain with hail and sleet for days on end with no problems. These miles have been mostly on asphalt with some good gravel and dirt roads.
I will be putting another set on when these wear out which should be a strong endorsement.
