Greetings all, Just thought I'd post my thoughts on these tires as they came stock on my '19 R1250 GS hp. I did not see much posted about these and I'm guessing they're not very popular. I know BMW has a host of different tires they will use as OEM so if anyone is thinking about using these, it may be helpful.
I ride fairly aggressively and 90-95% on road. I noticed after 1,000 miles that the rear was already showing noticeable wear. At about 2500 miles, did a weekend trip up near the tail of the dragon (overrated in my humble yet accurate opinion) and by they time I came back, the rear was ready for replacement.
I did use these tires on some off-roading and they did fairly well but the trade off for me on road was not worthwhile. I found these tires to be extremely noisy and given the aggressiveness of the tread, they do compromise some cornering ability. On a scale of 1-10 for my riding style, I would give them a 4.5 given the cost, longevity, and on-road traction.
