I have tried most all of them and my all time favorite is the Dunlop D606. The Pirelli MT-21 is a close second but has about half the tread life of a 606 and that's why it's second IMO.

I would add the Metzler Karoo and the Kenda K270(this is a cheap and very good 50/50 tire).

They do, the only drawback being that they have gotten rather more expensive over the past couple of years. Those are the tires on my bike, Rick, and they handle both interstates and rutted dirt pretty well.

Karoo
Multipurpose off road tyre with maximal adaptability that makes everything possible:
from the sand of desert rallies to the asphalt of road touring
Knob distribution developed for impressive traction in off-road use together with great high speed stability on-road.
Handling characteristics with smooth corner entry and stable leaning for optimum control when cornering.
Excellent mileage capability even if used on-road and great adaptability to different bike's load conditions.



Size Range

110/80 R 19 M/C 59R TL
90/90 - 21 M/C 54R
150/70 R 17 M/C 69R TL
150/70 R 18 M/C 70R TL
130/80 - 17 M/C 65R
140/80 - 17 M/C 69R
140/80 - 18 M/C 70R

Karoo doesn't come in exactly the right size front tire ?
