Put a set on my 2009 R1200GS. Done around 400km so far with a bit of off-road. So far they are amazing. Handle well on the highway, great on gravel, hardpack and a river crossing. The best part is that they are very quiet on the road and run straight at speed. For a knobbly, they don't seem to wander too much on tar snakes and the bike is stable in corners without the drop-in i had found with the Anakee Wilds. For doing everything pretty well, they look to be a new go-to tire for big bikes: on and off-road. I'm impressed. I have no idea how long they will last, but they have a harder compound than the TKC. Anyhow, so far I'm very happy with them. Oh, one other thing, it's the first set of tires where I have been pleased with front and rear as a matched set.
Put a set on my newly purchased 2017 R1200GS for a pine barrens adventure camp and 2500 miles trip on the Mid-Atlantic Back Country Discovery Route in Eastern US.
Coming from a metzeler tourance next, riding on tarmac was initially awkward with the noise, vibration and different steering, but I got used to the tire and now really like the handling. Wet traction is a bit sketchy, thus best to switch to rain mode.
Off-road the AX really shines - great traction and handling in sand, deep gravel, mud. Very confidence inspiring at pace and hard breaking - the front bites and tracks solidly (with the expected limitation of a 19 inch wheel in deep sand).
Changed the rear at 3000 miles, front got 4000 and probably 500-1000 to go.
