There are a lot of good 50/50 tires out there and there are a lot of decent mileage/low cost ones out there too. Like a previous poster said, all you need to do is get off the internet and go find them.
While it's on the dirt side of riding, here's a link to a Kenda Trackmaster forum that also has information on a host of other dual sport tires -> http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3107
Several of the DSers I rode with this weekend were on the track master. Great tire. Takes you where you need to go, even on a big bike.
