Other than the 244, I have only ridden 606's on this bike. This is my daily driver too and while the 606s are a bit noisey on the road I am fine with it. Ride the desert a few times a week coming and going to work, so the knobbies are not a problem. Looking to try different tires and this would be the time to mount up a new set.
stick with what you know. Dunlop 606's are actually a good tire for everything. they do fine in sand.
Rocky Mtn ATV/MC has good prices on those.
also look at Maxxis Desert IT (harder compound)
or Cross IT (slightly softer compound)
not DOT legal but they are a great tire.
