Continental TKC70 Rear Tire

This tire is going on my BMW R100GS. It is replacing my Kenda Big Blocks tire. I am using this tire because it is less of an offroad tire, yet it will work on gravel roads if I happen to come across them in my journeys.

TKC 70s - Two rear tires per each front tire?

I have just changed out the rear tire on my 2013 Super Tenere' with a second TKC 70. I rode the first one for about 6500 miles but it was becoming too bald for an upcoming 3500-mile trip to BC and back and it was cupping. The front tire is also a TKC 70 and it has about 4750 miles on it but it is also cupping. I would like to get at least 12,000 on that front unit, but I doubt that will happen. The TKC 70s are a good choice for my riding habits, but 90% of my mileage is on pavement. However, when I do get onto the gravel and some dirt, they are a big improvement over the Metzelers that were on the bike when I bought it slightly-used. I think that high inflation pressures are beneficial with the TKC 70s, and I ride with a fairly full load which may be just a bit too far rearward. I think that is why the front tires are cupping because I can feel a slight wobble at high speed which I believe is due to a light front-end, and I am making some adjustments to correct that issue. I will begin travelling with my small tank-panniers and also move my Jesse side-panniers as far forward as possible to reduce rear-end loading while increasing front-end balance-point loading.

Best of both worlds

From pounding out miles on the highway to sandy jeep trails to the million dollar highway and tearing up corners. These hold tight to the ground. I have really been impressed with how well they handle and perform far better than I expected for an adv tire. For me they have held up very well. I am at about 4000 miles on them and it looks like I will get about 1000 more. I have notice that I get the traditional cupping on the front but have not noticed it cause any problems in any condition.
