I'd be hesitant to go any more knobby than a MT-21 on the front unless the riding was 100% dirt.

Mark has a good point. Have you ever wrassled your ADV around a berm...holy shit, it just wants to go straight over the top!

The MT18 HD will support the ADV just fine. BUT, your braking distance on pavement will be scary. It is only for connecting trails, not for commuting to work. They are DOT, with a 103 or 106 MPH rating.

As for the rest of these guys, they actually think the D606 is really an off road tire
