    So I am running the Heidenau K60's front and back. It seems the front is a bit wimpy on width. The only really wide front tire I have seen is the Continental TKC 80. However I am looking for something that has a bit more road like manors than a knob.

    Does anyone know if the Continental TKC 70 is as wide or any other preferences similar to the Heidenau front but wider.

    Are we talking about an F800GS here? Your profile doesn't say...

    I've played on some curvy roads with another rider on a Versys, and seemed to corner fine with the TKC80. You don't buy a bike with a 21" front rim to keep up with supersports. :wink:

    I think tires are only going to change your performance a small amount. After that you need a different style bike. Just my $.02

    Yes F800GSA. I'm not concerned about sport bikes. I have had many and enjoy the F800 it actually handles quite well for what it is.
    The TKC is certainly an option to try or possibly the TKC 70 if it has the wide profile.
    It always worth looking for the better or best of what's availible IMO.
