K60's

Without a doubt the best tire to do a trip of this kind with are the K60's. Why? Mileage is fantastic!

Lets face it on an overland adventure you need a tire that performs well in all kinds of conditions and that means a compromise in what the tire can handle.

Can you lay the k60's over hard in the corners? Yup, but of course not like a street slick, nor will they handle the mud like tkc 80's. What k60's will do though give you great performance in most conditions and incredible mileage.

We are currently on a global ride and our first set of k60's we got 14k+ miles out of. First set still had life in them when we swapped them off for fresh ones before leaving the US for Mexico.

Hell I managed fine with the continental sport touring front in the rain on the Dalton too, but my bike is small and light.
Hey Skierd, good to see getting to ride some of the great roads in the Great North. On my bucket list for next year. Stay well and keep that WR rubber side down.
