    Hey folks,
    I’m doing a tour right now and the stock rubber on my Africa twin was smoked. The shop I stopped at had these two tires, so I went with them. I did want something more aggressive than the stock tires. Do you folks think this combo will perform ok, or was it a mistake?

    Thanks for your input

    Well, since no one seems to know, I’ll update in a few thousand miles!

    I have run that combo on my Triumph Tiger 955i and also on my Yamaha Tenere. Works just fine.

    I typically run a K60 front with either a E07 or Anakee III rear, mixing tires is fine. Adjust your riding style a bit depending on what you've got on, don't sweat it. :)
