New K60 on my bike (currently at 82K miles and has seen lots of different tires - these, T63s, TKC80s, Mefos, IRC GP1s and GP110s, D606s and a couple of others). Of everything I've tried these are my favorite...
Overall shot of bike:
The Heideneau tires don't look as aggressive as the T63s (which I've run as well) but seem to grip about as well off road to me and the K60s are markedly better on pavement, wet or dry, IMO. The T63 rears I've had on my Dakar lasted about 2,500 miles and the front about twice that, but really cupped up badly in the last 1K miles or so. For me the K60s are a much better value since they go over twice as far with better overall performance. They also cost more - $150 for the rear vs. about $70 for the T63. $85 for the front vs. $70 for the Michelin.
