Scorpions handled well on my 950 (was grinding pegs in the twisties) but the tires didn't last very long for me (3500 miles) and I usually get more mileage than most on tires. I'm curious about your mileage on the scorps though.

I might stick a super explorer or K-60 on the back when my stock tires are used up. I was able to rail the corners on my K-60 on the 950 and got 8200 miles out of the super explorer rear. Super explorers felt really good in the dirt, the k-60 was a little squirrley but I could rail on the K-60 on pavement but couldn't on the SE.
