Karoo 2 (not Brown Dog's 'T') and K60 Mefo/Hidenau

I got 6500 miles out of a Karoo 2 (with a Tubliss insert) on a ride from Beyneu, Kazakhstan to Ulaan Bator, Mongolia. There was alot of bad tarmac and a helluva lot more dirt/sand/gravel.

The Karoo 2 is CHEAP, like the T63. The Tubliss extended life, in my experience, another 2000 miles.

The Karoo (T) on my Husky TE630 is fantastic on street and I chase sport bikes into every corner I can.

It's hard to add to the K60's reputation. On this run, 12,000 miles and I'm still a long way from the wear bars. That's on a 2.5" rear rim with a 140/80.
