The tires are awesome. Made my son's DRZ400E, with supermoto 17" wheels much safer on the dirt and fire roads of Humboldt county CA. They also have great traction on the wet and rains roads.

Without considering price and potential short life span it’s the best tire in ithe adv ride category.
Had 4.1x18 installed on the front, and the 180 55 17 on the rear of my Ducati Scrambler classic. They look and perform great!
Bought the combo set for my 2008 DR-Z400SM for a good price.
Shipping was ultra fast.
Came with a 3-year warranty provided by Continental with 150 mile free towing !!!
Got to love that right!
This tire came stock on my bike and after wearing it out I decide to replace with the same tire for a trip I took. Worked good on pavement and gravel roads in the dry and the wet.
I installed these on my 2017 Africa Twin for a back-road / dirt-road ride in Maryland and West Virginia. I was surprised at how smooth they were. Being knobbies I thought they'd ride rough, but they felt as smooth as street tires and were very confidence inspiring in the curves. Maybe they felt smooth because the Africa Twin is so plush, but I was more than impressed with these tires. On the downside, we did about 500 miles and the wear was very noticeable. I tried to keep an even throttle to minimize wear, so I can only imagine how quickly these would wear out with some aggressive riding. As soon as I got home I put on a new set of TKC70s and will save these for my dirt-road rides.
Great tires, but wear quickly.
Last summer, I used the TKC80s on my BMW R1200GS for riding the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route, on the highway from Portland to Lakeview, Oregon, on the dirt and gravel for 700 miles from Lakeview to Walla Walla, WA, and then again on the highway from Walla Walla, WA to Portland again.
I liked the TKC80s so well that I put them on my Suzuki DR650 for the Washington Backcountry Discovery Route planned for this year. I will ride the freeway from Portland to Seattle, and then The North Cascades Highway to go east and north into Osoyoos, British Columbia. Then ride 600 miles of dirt and gravel south from Canada to Hood River, Oregon.
Helpful hint: if your bike requires innertubes, get the T-type tires.
Tire is wearing great! Continental tires have never let me down in 20 years! Choose a brand that you can afford and trust at the same time.
