    Hi there,

    i just bought new tires to do a 2500km offroad trip (mostly gravel roads, but proper offroad stuff too). Because of good recomendations i decided to go for the K74 / K69 combination, but now that i have them on the wheels i am really concearned how long they would last...
    I first have to do a 300k highway run until i hit the track.

    I have never run aggressive tires like that before on my bike. Usually i run K60 Scout tires...

    Will these tires survive that? How much milage can i expect out of these??
    What would be a good pressure for these tires on road / off road? Any other recomendations for these tires?

    Thanks a lot and cheers!

    PS.: My Bike is a Yamaha TT600S

    can't recommend them. There are not made for any street use at all. Even with the mere 26 hp of my NX250 the treads got ripped on the street.
    The Michelin Anakee Wild or the new Brigdestone AX41 are way better for on/offroad use.
