The Scorpion Trail is a street oriented tire not unlike the Dunlops mentioned earlier. The Dempster gets muddy. Even on dry days you get 200 yard lengths of mud.

That TKC 80 in a 120/70/17 would do the job, though.

Edit, this link says conti introduced the 120/70/17 this summer due to demand for the Duc MTS

That'll do!
Yeah, they seem to be having a hard time keeping the TKC in stock. The Kenda Big Block is another alternative, but people are buying those up faster than they can make them too. I looked for both of those for over a month for my XL600, and finally gave up and bought a mismatched set of Dunlop/Pirelli knobbies that will probably go 1500 miles.
