Tkc 70's or attack2

Is anyone running TKC70's or Attack 2's? If so what kind of mileage are you getting? I don't have time to get K60's!

went with the TKC 70'S so far so good. 1st impressions, good road feed back for a dual compound tire. They lay in the corners well. You can really feel the dual compound when transitioning from straights to corners.

Any indication of wear yet? I'm thinking they might be my next tyre but they are fairly new so user experiences are few and far between at the moment.

Here's the TKC-70 thread. We are just starting to have data on wear but from the little we have it does sound promising.

i wonder how well the rear tire handles wet asphalt. with the solid center it looks like there's no where for the water to go.

By all accounts, wet asphalt is a forte of the tire.

Well the wet is good. But they don't like high speed (above legal speeds that is) which they are not meant for anyway. But they do handle, corner and straights very good and stable. We here in Texas have some 85mph roads. They were good and stable up to 90, but don't like it much more than that. That being said that is probably one of the only roads in America you can legally do that. Again the tire and bike were not meant to travel at those speed especially all the air you push with a full set of cases on it. Long story short. So far great handling tire. can't wait to see how much milage out of it.

For what it's worth, an Anakee 3, pending road surface, is good for 6k on a GS. For an Alaska run I'd plan for 4k (*road surfaces are exceedingly harsh in Canada and Alaska).

If you're on decent surfaces, 6k is not unexpected.

The best mileage I ever got was on a set of Trail Attack 1's (11,000 miles) where the first 5k were a 100ccc of straight highway droning.

I have the trail attack 2's with about 4k miles on them and plenty of life left. I was extremely happy with them on a 1500 mile ride of almost all backroads, and 500miles of the Blue Ridge Pkwy (or whatever the total length of it is).

I love those tires for the street, and change them out with 908's for the dirt. I would like to try the 70's though if they are decent on gravel.

As fun as it is to slide the rear out in gravel corners, they aren't to confidence inspiring on twisty gravel roads when common into a corner a little too hot.

I just replaced a set of Anakee 3s on a Super Tenere at 17,000 miles of mostly commuting and highway. I got the same out of the previous K60 set. Replaced them with TKC 70s and am MUCH happier.

Observations so far:
