My friend who had them on his XR600 ran the 606's on the freeway and the woods just fine,his only shortfall on the freeway was he had bead locks,but the tires just wore like a knob does on the freeway,I say this cause I followed him all over on my DR350 with Kenda Big Blocks and my freeway time was scary,just my experience with the kenda .
What would you do if you weren't afraid?

I've run through quite a few TKC80's on my 04. Think they are hard to beat. One of these days I may try out the Kenda K270 to see if the mileage really is that much better.

My dad has a D606 on his 08 and I hate the thing. Howls worse on the road than my F-350 4x4 with off-road tires going down the interstate. I'm amazed one tire can make so much noise. Seems like it is wearing quick and the rear end gets squirly quick if you are on the rear brake hard. Does work decent off road, but I don't feel it holds much if anything over the TKC80 off-road and the TKC80 has much better on-road manners.

For what is worth, I went with the two set of rims route. I have a mefo set, and a t-63 set. The mefo set is not as good in the mud as the tkc80 tires, and the back is a lot slipperier on wet pavement. They also aren't as good in the mud. I have about 1500 miles on them, and I really can't see any real wear. The t-63 set is really pretty good in the mud, but give a lot of vibrations on pavement, which I avoid with them if possible. They seem to be wearing quick, but they're cheap. If I had to use just one set of wheels, the tkc80 would be it. They cost about the same as the mefos now anyway. The KLR doesn't see a lot of miles now that it has stable mates, and I could easily get a few years out of them.
Friend: That was some trail shortcut. Me: Yep. See how fast we got lost.
