Great on the road, too.
Bear in mind these are knobbies. I ride an R1200GS in the mountains in NC, and spend about half my time on logging roads and forest service roads. Am using the TKC80 on the front end and a Heideneau on the rear. On dirt, in mud, on gravel, this TKC tire does exactly what a knobby is supposed to do. Good traction. I have stayed up when other riders on lighter bikes have gone down. However, what really impresses me is the TKC performance on pavement. Hairpin turns? No problem, 70 mph, no problem. (Not at the same time, of course). I can literally scrape a toe on the turns, lean the bike that far over and the TKC holds on fine. I don't believe there is a better front tire for what I like to do.

Best long lasting knobbies
I've had Tourances, Heideneau K60's, and Michelin T63's on my but none have provided the performance on and off road the TKC80's do. Sure, they hum pretty loud while slabbing it but then again, you should be off the beaten path with a dual sport.

My last TKC front last about 14,000 kilometres and I could have gotten another 1,000. Only the K60 Scout can beat that but it won't be nearly as competent off road. The TKC is quite grippy on the road as well so you don't feel like you are giving anything up for the knobs.

Excellent choice for on/off road
I have these on a V-Strom 650 and rode them 80/20 on/off road. Sure, these tires are ideal for 20/80, but I heard they offered good traction on pavement - and they do. Road noise is not that bad, they are far quieter than I expected for a knobby tire. Traction on both dry and wet pavement is very, very good. Off road use brings no surprises. As everyone knows, the tread life is not as good as, say, a Tourance, but typical for a knobby tire ridden on pavement. These are my favorite choice for knobbies on a dual-sport bike.

Great 60/40 tire
For an aggressive big bike, big block tire I love the TKC. Provides great off-road abilities and is predictable on-road. It doesn't have a long life but it is a great 60/40 tire that offers confidence on or off road.

This tire works very well in offroad conditions
I was looking for a tire that was a little more aggressive than the 50/50 tire. This tire so far has worked great. I have been thru sand with it and works way better that a 50/50 tire. It will be hard to try a different tire after these.

Great on Dirt and Gravel Roads
Bought these to replace the stock tires on a Yamaha Tenere. Great for off road stability and traction with minimal compromise on the pavement. Should have switched to these right away, has made a huge difference.

Better than I expected
I am a hard core Dunlop 606 guy but I recently bought a Honda Africa Twin that I was going to ride into the Copper Canyons on my way from Calif to Conn. I had always wondered what the TKCs were all about so I put them on since I expected a lot of highway travel.
I have to admit that I was impressed with them. As a good all around tire with a 50/50 (Street/Dirt) bias I have to give them credit for getting me through some tough terrain.

Not as grippy in the rough as the 25/75 Dunlops, they loaded up in sand and mud. Otherwise they did fine.

Mileage was impressive as I got 4000 miles out of them before they were toast. I probably would have changed them sooner but I had to wait until I got back to the US. However, even at the end they were still giving me good highway traction for cornering and braking.

awesome tires and great service to boot
Got my tires within days of ordering at a very competitive price. Tires balanced out great. Have not had them that long but in the dirt and on the pavement have been impressed with the traction, wet or dry.

Looks great as well as performs
I decided to switch out the stock Bridgestone Battle wing tires on my Triumph Tiger 800xc for a tire that was more suited for off-roading. I read lots of reviews and decided to buy the Continental Twinduro TKC80 Dual Sport Tires. They look great but definitely have a different ride than the stock tires.
When I arrived at the shop in the morning to get them installed it was cool and overcast but by the time the tires were installed the pavement was wet and it was lightly raining...not perfect conditions for the test ride. I noticed some vibration when I got it on the road which after about 20 miles seemed to dissipate. No problem with traction on wet roads but I must admit I was more cautious.
Next day I took it to the C&D canal and did some light off-road in sand and gravel with great results. I felt much more confident in these conditions than on the stock tires. My only complaint is that in a full lean the knobby's can bend and cause the bike to quickly shift (inches). I was more prepared the second time and understood what was happening.
I would suggest that you also order a Front Fender Riser if you have the Triumph to give a little extra space between the tire and fender if going offroad.
Overall I am happy with my selection.

Are this tires shoing M+S stamp rating on the side?
Due to European regulation I have to install tires that have this stamped in the side of the wall or I will be paint fines in the winter.
A shopper on Dec 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes mine have M+S on front and rear.
I have a Triumph tiger 800XC. The owners handbook says I need a tube type tire. I'm interested in the Heidenau K60 scouts. Do you have these for my bike?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I had a 800gs and ran the K60 scouts on the rear and the TKC 80's on the front. It was a great combo! I got almost 12000 out of the scouts and the TKC's really bite where I needed it off-road. At real slow speeds (like putting in traffic to get to a traffic light) the scouts can feel a little weird and wiggly, but I found this to be pretty normal. I have a friend that has the tiger 800xc and did the exact same thing and he loved both tires. I will do the same for my new Yamaha Super Tenere. You can't go wrong with this combo.
Can I use the TL with a tube? I don't see the right size in the TT. I have a DR650
A shopper on Mar 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I've used this tubeless tire with an inner tube on my KLR 650 with no problem. It's just tubeless tires have a hard bead to break, making it a little more of a pain to install the tube.
I have a ktm 990 Baja..does the rear run a tubless tire? Wanting to get the 150/70/18 tkc 80 but not for sure what to order tubless or tube type?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The 990 does not run a tubeless system from the factory, but the 1190R does, I'm pretty sure, and it has the 18/21 tire combo. Continental's website says they make a TL (tubeless) version of the tire, so make sure you get the tire with the "TL" designation. My rear tire actually says "tube type" on the sidewall. There are aftermarket ways to make your OEM rims tubeless, via a special rim strip, which could be an option. It is being done more and more of late, but will add the one-time expense of this modification, which isn't exactly cheap, but I've been considering doing the mod myself. Do let me know how it works out if you take it on!!
I'm looking to put the tkc 80 on the front of my 2013 F800GS. Can anyone answer what the difference is between the 90/90-21 TT 54S and the 90/90-21 TL 54T?

Thanks
A shopper on Mar 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: TT + Tube type; TL = Tubeless. S speed rating = 112 mph, T speed rating = 118 mph.
I really want to try this tires on my Buell xb12s , its mainly just for looks my daily commute to work and back is 10 miles . Would you guys think the tire will hold on pavement or would you even recommend putting this tires in a sport bike ?
A shopper on Sep 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you take it off-road yes. Otherwise for street they aren't as good as a dedicated road tire.
The knobbies break traction with a high torque
V twin motorcycles. They are like a 50 % street
50% dirt tire.
Do Conti TKC80 tires come in a Tube Type version? I only see a 90/90-21 TL 54T listed on your website? Can a tube be placed in a tubeless style tire?
Josh K on Apr 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Funny you ask. I carry a tube with me even though these are tubeless tires because one of the service guy's at Bob's BMW suggested I do this several years ago prior to a trip across Labrador during which I bent a front wheel and it would not hold air. The tube saved my trip and ran for another four thousand miles without vibration or problem until I got the wheel straightened at Woodie's in Denver. I always carry tubes when traveling to remote places with tubeless tires. I'm not sure how I will use them on the new GSW wheels though as the valves are in a funny location.
Ok this may be a stupid question but my cousin runs these on his ducati and he loves them. I just got back into the dual sport scene after an accident. Just got alittle cfr250l. Yes I know its a womens bike but it was cheap and I would rather wreck that then a big money bike. I understand these are made for bigger bikes but is it possible to slap them on a 250?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes if you have the rim size that they sell. Also be careful with the width. These are for the bigger bikes with wider swing arms. So measure the width of the swing arm up front, check to see if it will clear your chain, and not be too wide for your rim.
I'd like to find out about the total mileage you get out of the TKC80 vs. Michelin Anakee 2?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: KTM 990 ADV. TKC-80's getting 2500-4000 miles on rear depending on how "sporty" I get in rocky terrain. 5000 on fronts. Fronts cup after 3000 if you don't keep the pressures at recommended levels. They're fun and versatile. Not noisy or too vibrational. Still my go-to choice.
Looking to put this on my NC700X. But the back tire is 160/60zr17. What would be the best fit given the lack of an exact match?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If it were me I'd go with the 150 rear and not the 170. You won't have to worry about fitment and it's nice to go a tad smaller in the rear so you can get the tire spinning quicker when needed (off road that is). a 170 rear tire off road is pretty monstrous. Dirt bike tires rarely exceed 120. Your bike isn't heavier than a 1200GS and they spec 150 for their rear if I recall correctly. My KTM 990 also specs a 150 rear and I've been toying with going 140. They are a nice handling tire off and off piste so have fun! Keep slightly less pressure in them if off road for long stints. Proper tire pressure is key to longevity in the TKC.
