For touring I like a mild rear with a semi-mild TKC-80 on front. Ebay had some good close out prices on the old Anakee, $63 shipped ain't bad so I put one on the rear to replace my worn out TKC that was on the wear bars with just over 3K.

I was surprised how well the combo does. I run forest roads for most of my "off road" and ride mostly gravel with very little mud so, the combo works very well. I've been runing the original tubes for the most part, but I did break down and get a Dunlop HD for the front and a IRC HD tube for the rear as spares. I've yet to loose a tube on the DR from riding, the front is the original and the rear was replaced with a $14.50 dealer tube due to a self inflicted pinch with a tire iron....
