Heidenau K60 Scout Rear Tire
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.

On the fence? Buy these tires.
It's hard to shell out this much money on a set of tires but they are worth every penny. You can feel the sure footedness immediately on the asphalt despite the hardness of this compound. And the same goes for gravel and dirt. I immediately felt more confident on my bike. These are quiet tires until you hit about 60 then they hum pretty good. The noise went away after about 150 miles. The sidewalls are THICK and hold up very well when deflated for off road travel. Put these on my KLR and when, (if) they wear out I'll buy another set. So far I've put about 300 street miles on them and there is almost zero wear. On the fence about buying these high quality tires? Buy them.

Very pleased so far.
I put the 140/18 (no center strip) on my Husky Terra and so far I'm very pleased. Only have about 700 miles on it so far but it's performed well in all conditions including deep clay and mud in the mountains of VA. If I get anywhere near the 10K mile mark that others have been reporting I'll be very happy. Sure there are other good tires for less money but but who wants to change them out every 3-4K miles?

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 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.

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
