Continental TKC70 Dual Sport Tires Bridging the gap between the more off-road oriented TKC 80 Twinduro Tires and the Trail Attack 2 Tires, the Continental TKC70 Tires make an excellent 60 on-road and 40 off-road option. Featuring innovations you've come to expect from Continental like 0 steel belt construction for superior stability and comfort even at high cruising speeds and Continuous Compound-Technology, the TKC70 tires adapt to changing conditions with ease. Specifically designed to help alleviate the complaints of short wear-life of the TKC80 Tires, the TKC70's are equally at home on light trail work as they are on slab. The usability of a slightly more street-oriented design is apparent and provides a high level of grip in all wet and dry conditions thanks to Continental's Rain Grip Compound. Aggressive siping and self-cleaning grooves add to the inclement-weather prowess of the TKC 70. When the open road calls, expect excellent mileage for long trips on asphalt and quiet, high-speed stability due to the central band on the rear tire. An ideal ADV Tire choice for larger displacement bikes like KTM 1190 Adventure Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 BMW R1200GSW Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Yamaha Super Tenere

I recently installed a set of TKC-70's on a 2008 BMW R1200 GS Adventure. The prior two sets were TKC-80's. Though I only have approximately 300 miles on the tires the most dramatic difference has been the handling on paved roads particularly in corners. Compared to the Metzler Tourance the TKC-70 feels better planted and inspires confidence in corners. Upright riding feels comparable to any tire with a rounded profile. The obvious difference in performance is in the dirt; the 70, lacking the large square knobs as the 80, does not dig in soft loose conditions. However on fire trails and pack dirt conditions the 70 is right at home. And with the solid paved road performance I have been very happy with the TKC-70!
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Interphone F5 has been, by far, the best motorcycle Bluetooth headset I have used ( ScalaRider, Camos, Sena). The initial setup and pairing to my iPhone could not be easier! It did, however, take a bit of time to understand how to scroll through the Interphone menu to locate the feature I was seeking. And although scrolling is somewhat time consuming, a rider can easily access music, phone and intercom. Battery life was great during my Los Angeles to San Francisco ride along the coast. The headset speakers worked well, though hopefully someday the fidelity will improve and offer better low end and midrange. The BMW R1200 GS Adventure which I ride has decent wind protection but even on some of the windy coastal areas and at 80 m.p.h. the headset speakers performed well. The intercom sounded great during the setup though I have yet to test rider to rider sound quality at freeway speeds. All in all, the Interphone has performed just as advertised and with the ease of use and audio quality it will have little competition.
Yes, I recommend this product.
