Thanks, I will check out those tires.
really like the mefos on gravel and semi sane, single track. wore a set out at about 15k clicks, still had more life in them, but wanted to try out my new k/60's. usually i don't pay much attention to small differences, but i found the mefo's out performed every other tire for my type of riding by such a large margin, that if i ever wear out the k 60's (very tough tire) it'll be back to he mefos for sure.
I like the Mefo's but just to damned expensive.
Been running an Explorer on the front of my BMW G650X Country and Agree with Kamlander on the gravel and summertime roads. Now I'm about due for a replacement and I can get an in stock K60 a lot cheaper just down the street, but if it won't be as good as the MEFO, then why bother or are they close enough to call it a wash??
My bike has a 2.5" wide front rim and I run the 100-90-19 Mefo, with the K60, I can also get the 110-80-19 size. Any thoughts or pro's and con's of the size change while still on the 2.5" rim? Stay with the stock 100-90-19? Stay with the Mefo? ???
Great post; thanks! I'm shopping for a rear tire for my KLR and Mefo made the short list, but I choked at the prices I'm finding.
Especially appreciate the Heideneau K60 Scout lead; I'll let you know what I buy and how it works out.
I am currently running the D606 front and rear and the bike sounds like a monster truck running down the road. Do the MEFO's do the same thing?
The plan is to have 2 sets of rims the D606 for aggressive days and maybe an 80/20 paved/dirt for everyday riding.
Found the mefo's to be very civilized (not very loud at all).Exceptional tire. Liking the k60's as well, but they do howl a bit. Will be going back to the mefo's when the k60's are done. Worth the extra money imo.
I'm currently running Mefo Explorers on four different bikes. Much quieter and smoother than the TKC's I used for the last decade and they last 2x-3x as long. Infinitely better stability on wet pavement, too. I rarely get into anything more technical than gravel, caliche or packed dirt roads and the Mefos are very confidence-inspiring.
