Front tyre choice for trails

Ok, a controversial choice of topic.

What front tyres are people using for mainly off road work?

What tyres are being used for the road/trail 50/50 mix?

I'm thinking the Mitas E07 for mainly off road (but still highway capable) and the more aggressive Pirelli for 50/50. Good reviews?

Any opinions appreciated.

I've tried most of the "dirt" tyres in 21 & 17 inch on my DR650, I'm just wondering how they faired on the F8 in the general experience of members.

The F800 doesn't seem to be as harsh on my limited 5000 odd kms of experience with it anyway.

Maybe it's the way I rode the DR? Maybe it's having the wife on the back of the F8? Maybe it's the fact the F8 cost 3 times what the DR did?

Maybe it's because I haven't put dirt tyres on it and gone and played in the dirt yet?

Yeah, it's probably the last one.
