If you are 80% street, have a look at these. Great reviews and if you air them down a bit they are pretty good off road tires   and cheap !

If you want premium rubber that can handle some gravel roads . the Conti Trail Attacks are awesome. I ran a set on my KTM 950 and they were very good in the twists and still had some grip on gravel. Excellent in the rain.

DR peeps?What tires would you all suggest? I'm probably 80 percent road tire and the rest is shitty gravel/B road.



Not a DR rider but my 525 does well with a Pirelli MT 43 on the front and a Heidenau K60 on the rear. Good street manors, smooth and good grip. Gets along does fine offroad in rocks, gravel,  & hardpack, bascially everywhere that you don't really need a knobbys ability to dig deep.

I may die with nothing to show for it but there will be a heck of a garage sale.

I tried lots of tires on my KLR 650 (Avon Distanzas, Anakees) but found the best dirt/street tires were Mefo Explorers.

I'm glad everyone has enjoyed this thread.I'm going to be a cheap bastard and use up these Bridgestone Trail Wings.They are toast,but I can put off tires until spring of 15. :lol:I've been in contact with Warp9 about more DR offerings and I love their stuff.

I just love this bike except for the seat.Just kills my ass.I've been waiting for Yamaha to come out with a new mini Tenere.And I might just put my money were my mouth is.I've seen pics of a new FJ09 and that bike is nothing like a smaller FJR sport tourer.

Until then I'll (Putt)along with my DR.

Finally put on the wind deflectors.I have had a lot of motorcycles over the years and I can say this slow ass DR is probably one of my favorite bikes ever.
