Back in 2001 I put some TKC80s on a Honda NX650. This tire was virtually unknown in the U.S. back then, I had to do a lot of TKC80 research on Euro (mostly German) web sites before I finally took the plunge and ordered a set.
Holy crap those tires stick great on pavement as well as dirt. I mean those things just freaking hang onto the pavement like velcro, it's unreal. And then you go offroad and start the mud-slinging, they work great there too.
I think I did about 2k on those tires before I sold the bike, the front looked almost new while the rear was about half-gone, probably good for 4k-5k.
I will probably pick up a DRZ400S one of these days, when I do the first mod will be a set of TKC80s. 8)
