Serves it's purpose.
I bought these mainly for a trip from Delaware to Laurel Fork campground. I just wanted the best off-road traction possible for inclement weather. The only bad weather I had on the trip was during the paved sections and I have no complaints. Sure, they don't handle as well as a street tire but this is a knobbie, just slow down. Its worth the trade off to me to have the off-road confidence. You can ride a off-road tire on the street all day. But when your running street tires and hit mud, well, it doesn't work the other way around. I got a good twenty-five hundred miles out of mine. I pulled a loaded trailer for about 1500 of those miles, and maybe 600 of them off-road. I did have a chance to use them in some thick mud on my 650 strom and they performed excellent! Just ask the guy who was a bit too close behind me! I recommend this tire and Revzilla.

Not so good on road. Great off road.
On road: I'd give the tire a 3 star on road. I know they are close to a 20/80 tire, but they don't hold tight corners very well. Taking real tight corners I have felt the back end slide out a bit, which is a bit unnerving. They are loud and you get that drifting feeling at highway speed. Vibration is very noticeable. On 50 mph hour winding roads they do well on dry pavement. They are wearing fast and I expect to get less than 2k miles out of them.

Off road: I'd give them a 4 star rating here. Not quite as good as the D606s off road, but still impressive. Took them on a bunch of very wet muddy roads that a car without 4wd would not make it down. They did surprisingly well and gave me more grip than I thought was there.

Overall: If you are looking for a cheap dual sport tire this is not a bad option, if you don't ride much at highway speeds (65-75mph). They do just fine everywhere else. 3/5.

Better than expected
coming from enduro/off road racing I was looking for more of a knobby type tire for the dirtier sections of my adv riding.

Picked the front and back big blocks tires for my Super Tenere.
first ride with the tire was a 600 mile dual sport ride consisting of tar and gravel two lane country roads.. Dirt ranch roads and a few highway 4 lane runs. I'd say 60% road 40% dirt.
these tires had a good predictable feeling on both street and dirt. felt real stable around sweeping street turns.. and gripped well in the dirt. had some mud holes and slippery areas in the dirt that the tire worked well.
Not sure yet on mileage and durability but these tires looked really good after the first run...
only issue I had was the front tire lost air over the night and was flat.. I use slime in the tires but didn't see punctures.
I filled up the tire and it held air for the rest of the trip... I'll be checking tire pressure for now on to see if this is an on going issue.
Over all I was very pleased with handling performance.. I came of the hidenoau k60's and believe the Big Block has a better feel on and off road..

Bang for the bucks
I can't complain, it maneuver really well off road (trial on sandy / muddy terrain) and after getting use to, seems a pretty good tire at speeds below 75 mph.
I would recommend it for sure (cheaper than top brands).

Great all around tire for ADV bikes!
First thing, My Triumph Tiger 800 XC should of came with these from the factory! I've ridden my Tiger in the spring through snow and just over all bad ground conditions and they were great. I just rode from my home in northern Canada down to Sturgis and then carried on to Las Vegas and I felt these tire worked very well, I did some dirt trail riding in Utah on my way here and they were awesome, even with my bike fully loaded for the trip I was confident that I was on the perfect tire for what I was doing.

good tire for a large adv bike but the usual treadlife issue is there
i like the kenda big block rear on my f800gs. it hooks up in everything i've put it though without an issue. sand, mud, dirt, rocks -- it does it all well, no confidence issues. they work well on the road wet or dry.

where this tire lacks (as well as the tkcs, mitas e09 and every other aggressive knobbie put on a big adv bike) is tread life. i get maybe 4k miles out of a rear. this is to be expected unfortunately.

Great tire - Turned my Super Tenere into a sure-footed beast!
I got these Big Blocks for summer riding on forest roads. My first trips on the bike's stock tires did not inspire confidence and I wondered if my my Super Tenere was really going to be able to go off-road a all. The Big Blocks made all the difference. The bike tracks well now and goes right where you point it. Grab a handful of throttle and start grinning because you'll love these tires. If you're going off-road with a big adventure bike, this is the tire to have.

happy
i thought it was going to be to big but once i got it mounted it was pretty much true to size.

I have only put about a tank of gas on this tire but im definitely happy so far and it's a lot less than it's rival the conti TK80 i think it is. i went with the front and rear and im happy so far but i shall see as i put more miles on it.

Great price, Great tire
Got a matching set of the Kenda BB's for my F800GS. OEM's were the Anakee 2's....not good out here in the desert/fire roads of SoCal. Didn't want to break the bank on a set of knobbies to see how they feel on the street/dirt. I have had these thru deep water crossings/slimy rocks, mud, sand, desert fire roads, single track, huge uphill climbs, rocks, (little smaller than a helmet, but big enough). Hooked up fine in mud/sand/fire roads/uphills. Slimy rocks were an issue, but those are even an issue on my 520exc and 500cr. On the freeway, the rain grooves make front end twitchy. Fine in the local canyons, almost forget I'm on knobbies in the canyons. Same speeds as on freeways, in the twisties, were there are no rain grooves, the twitchiness goes away. The rain grooves of the freeway make it a wild ride. Not sure if this is true of all knobby manufactures. Jut over 900 miles on this set. No bad wear so far. I like'em!

Longer Lasting than TKC's
I have tried many different tires on my 2013 BMW F800GS. I my opinion the Kenda Big Blocks are the best tires for the buck. They last 1000-3000 miles longer than did the TKC 80's. The off-road performance is very comparable in the abrasive Arizona Desert. They also work well in mud and sand. Basically you get two tires for the price of one TKC 80.
I recommend these tires!

I needed new tires and these Kenda's fit my needs well, About 50/50 riding. they handle well on the road, a little slick on newly wet pavement, but can handle anything you throw at it.

These tires work very well off road but are not great on road. very noisy and hard to get balanced right. tires seem to wear quickly as well. good tire for the $$$

great dirt tire for the price.. these will take me places on the s-10 that I shouldn't be.. only problem is I can wear one out in 1500 miles.. but for aggressive dirt riding on a big adv bike.. this tire is hard to beat.

I like the tread pattern for studding for winter commuting.

1500 mile trip on my GS on mainly logging roads to include about 750 miles of road work to and from. Wanted to give them a try given the cost vs others.

is the kenda BB a tubed or tubeless tire? Im looking for a rear for a ktm 990 (tubed
and
A ktm 1190R tubeless rear
A shopper on Dec 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I believe the Kenda Big Block tire can be used in a tubeless setting. It is a harder compound than Conti TKC80s, but the KTMs will probably eat them up pretty fast based on a riding buddy of mine's experience...more so than my BMW F800GS.
Are your Kenda K784 Big Block rear tires size 150/70/17 the "new" compound that came out a couple of months ago or are these the old compound?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The tires I ordered from Revzilla in September have a manufacturing date of 1713 (17th week of 2013) Would seem that they are the new compound.
What are the following for the Kenda 784 Big Block Front 90/90-21 & 130/80-17 tires : speed rating & weight capacity ??
A shopper on May 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: they take high speed way better then TKC80's With the Kenda's I get a speed wabble at about 95 mph. TKC's start around 80mph. Weight I've been two up all through Death Valley with gear they handled great on and off road. BTW I'm ridding a KTM 990 adventure
