I want to get something more dirt oriented for this bike, but the tires don't seem to wear out and I hate to toss them before they're used up. Definitely a long lasting tire.

I have IRC GP-110 tires on my XR650L and am very happy with the grip on the street from those, as long as the tire pressure is up over 30 psi. They work quite a bit better on dirt roads than the Conti tires. They're not as good in dirt as TKC-80's which I also use on that bike. I know that the IRC tires wear out faster than the Trail Attacks, but not fast enough that I'm concerned with wear. I plan to try the Shinko 705 next on the XR. Who knows, they might be good on the KTM too.
