Sorry for the lateness in replies.
Thanks everyone for their recommendations!
I checked a few of those, I like the Mitas, but they don't have the size for the AT, well not legally for the German roads anyways...

Anyone tried Heidenau K60 Scout?
Opinions? Wet roads? On road? Off road?

Hi,
I've just returned from Wales doing a 2 day off road course on the AT, all 16 of the brand new AT's had Karoo 3's fitted.The terrain we rode on was very very muddy and well rutted and steep in some places the tyres seemed to handle just about anything you threw at them and they felt good on the road too.....I'm fairly new too off roading but it's pretty amazing what a 1000cc adventure bike can do with the right tyres and some good tuition......
Big thanks to the guys at the Honda Adventure Centre in Wales

I read reviews that they are now the longest lasting tyres.
What are they like on road?

Karoo 3 are brilliant all-round tires. Had them on my Terra as well as the 1150GS. One front lasts 2 rears, or thereabouts.

Heidenau K60 are reasonably good for 3ooo k's and then horrible for as long as you can bear them!! The rear tyre particularly, square off and while there will be plenty of thread remaining, you spend every ride just wishing that the damned things were finished so that you could get your beloved bike back!

Thx for the feed back.
How many km did you get out of the Karoo 3s rear?
I don't plan to go off road every time I'm out. But it's good to know I have tyres that are capable and ready to go. The OEM just doesn't cut it on wet roads or anything beyond gravel I feel.

About 4-5.000 k's on the GS before they were toast (had 2 sets) and have run the Terra for about 5.000 k's now, and reckon it'll do another 2 or 3 k's before it's had it time. Just traded in the Terra and picking up the AT in a couple of days. Have bought a Motoz Tractionator Adventure for the rear, but they are sold out on the 21' so will probably just stick with the OEM's while I run the bike in and put the Motoz's on next.

Cheers

I had karoo 3,s on my old gs800 and found them very good, but will try and fit anakee wilds once my oem tyres need changing too see what they are like! But would be happy to go back to the karoos if no good.

I was running a TKC80 front and K60 rear on my Tiger 800, but an am planning to try a set of Mitas E-07 Dakars on the AT, when I get it.

I use now Mitas E-09 front and rear for more than 300 kms.
Good tires. 80% off-road oriented.
