    I've been looking at tires for the Scooter Cannonball. The Heidenau K66 4-Season tires seem like it should be a good choice. Anyone have experience with them - longevity, mud, any other comments?

    I think you are referring to the K60 Scout. Good all around tire. Beware of anyone who says they got more that 6000 km out of them. They must be riding on feathers. R1200 GS would be lucky to get 5000 km...:rofl

    I think you're unaware that Heidenau makes a line of scooter tires as well.

    They musta mounted them backwards-I've got the K-60's on my Triumph 800XC and they have over 8000 miles (not KM) with still a couple of thou left to go

    The copper coil is 44 ft of soft 3/4" copper pipe that serves as the heating loop for my water heating system. It is a thermosyphon that preheats the water in a dummy tank that feeds the electric water heater. Typically the water entering the electric wh is already 110 degrees F instead of 48 F. directly from the well. Saves me a lot of money.

    No, I mean the K66 4 season http://www.motorcycletire.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=HN-K661308015 one Modern Vespa rider says she's got 10,000 miles on the rear. The larger wheeled Sports City should get better if how City Grips wear on the two bikes is any indication.

    scootrboi, lovely Heinkel, never heard of Michelin Reggaes before but if we get a small wheel scoot to keep in Colorado I'll make a note of them since our house there is also requires riding on unpaved roads to go anywhere though shorter than your off pavement.
