I'm trying to decide what tires to put on my daughter's NC700X. She wants to ride off pavement a fair amount and being a new rider, I want her to have all the advantages I can get her. I was thinking about going with TKC80 front and Shinko 805 rear for her bike to give her confidence off pavement.
Just wondering how this setup works on pavement with the NC700X.
TKC80 for the front handled my AT well on all types of terrain as well.
The rear 805 combination is OK but as the tires wear out (around 1k+ miles),
the noise and vibration on pavement, is something you have to endure.
IMO, if you and your daughter want to ride "offroad" and enjoy it,
a proper introduction to trail riding would be more appropriate on a more appropriate sized bike:

I ride rough and tough off-road parks with sand, rocks, ruts, and hills on a 218 pound, 144cc trail bike. It teaches me to handle all types of terrain, and it also makes me a better street rider. Knock on dirt, I haven’t dropped a street bike for the last 30 years.
Good to know. I rode from san francisco to whisler, bc (canada) on my nc700x back in 2017 on pilot road 4 tires. however it was all pavement. Planning a trip this year from san francisco to fairbanks, alaska. Reading this thread to find out if i really need to get tires shinko's or tk's. So far, i read that its very do-able on the pilot road 4's
Having a small dirt bike that you ride regularly on dirt can and will make a huge difference in your confidence-level when riding dirt roads on your NC. :-)
