I liked the K60's. I had almost 6K miles on them when I took the rear off. There was probably another 2-3K left. I replaced the rear with a Karoo3 because of the plug I had to use last weekend and because I'm taking off July 5th or 6th for a two week trip. I would have replaced it with another K60 but RevZilla was out of stock. When I saw they had the Karoo3 it was a chance to try the new tire. The only thing I didn't like about the tire was its wet road performance. The continuous center strip was very slippery on wet pavement.... But that was it. I loved everything else about the tire especially the off road (dirt/gravel) performance. Tire wear is incredible considering how we ride. The dry pavement performance was also very good. It never broke lose on me. I would recommend the tire and think it would be a great addition for the Tiger. I left the Heidenau front tire on the bike. With 6K it still looks new. No complaints regarding the front. I'm very happy with it's performance wet or dry, street or dirt/gravel. I hope that helps.
