Apologies bud, Ok...

Hope this helps. (horses for courses..)

- how much tar do you ride with your KLR? (wet often?)
- do you ride any off-road?
- what is your average fuel consumption?
- what do you weigh?
- do you ever ride 2 up? (what does he/she weigh) :evil:





www.sharwoodsbiketyre.co.za/ - they deliver in SA and are currently well priced.. IMHO.

I currently have Micheline Anakee 3's on as that is how I bought the bike. They are however probably 90/10. I would prefer a more 50/50. My question still is if the Heidenau K60 is a good tyre or not?

- how much tar do you ride with your KLR? (wet often?) 50/50
- do you ride any off-road? yes (see above 50/50)
- what is your average fuel consumption? no idea
- what do you weigh? 100kg
- do you ever ride 2 up? never

Only problem with 50/50 tyres you do not get miles! 70/30 is better (Sirac)

I've never had them on my bike, but my friend has them on a F650GS Dakar. The tires seem to last forever, which indicates a hard compound.

So my gut feel says that they should be very good for dry weather and long distance. Likely also quite puncture resistant. I don't think it's the best choice for wet roads, but a good 50/50 all in all.

I think it will run similar to Mitas E07, but with a little less offroad capability due to less aggressive tread pattern.

Bridgestone TW 41 for the front and TW42 for the rear. Very underrated tyre at a very good price which includes new tubes.

My only concern on the K60 is the center piece which looks very slick.

This tire looks very promising. Where do you buy them in JHB?
