Misc. Reviews

Here is a link to some tire reviews from a rider who has tried quite a few on her BMW R1100GS (same tire sizes and similar bike size, weight, and use as '93-'06 Tigers)...

I'm thinking real hard on a set of 80's for the off-pavement in NM, CO, UT, etc.   Does anyone know how they stand up to staight-lined boredom at ton+ speeds out on the desert superslab?

Also how are they in regard to drift in the twisties on the macadam?

They're surprisingly competent in the twisties on dry surfaces.

No so much on wet pavement.  I've noticed the rear slips a bit more than I'm comfortable with... reduce speed and be very smooth, no problems.

Furthermore, the TKCs are only rated to 99mph.  Although a good friend tells me they're quite stable for short blasts up to 115 on dirt. :lol:

So the negative is that they are not rated for super-high speed and are squirrely in the wet corners.  This would be expected.  How are they in regard to wear on the straight-line super-slab? Average?

On a beast - I have heard about 3-5k miles on a rear.  Dirt/gravel may extend this, but I would guess that extended desert slab will bugger the center quickly.  An option is TKC on the front, and a more slab friendly one on the rear.

I just took an "experienced" riders class in the rain on TKCs.  I pushed the quickstop drill extremely hard, and I think that my record for the 4 hour class was having both wheels locked for about 2 feet before recovering.......   :lol:

I just put a set of these on my '03.  So far, very good.  I've only put a couple hundred miles on them but so far, I am impressed.   :thumbsup

The Distanzias are lovely, I'm on my second set. The front is more v shaped in profile so they tend to drop into corners but I like that.
