Bob,
Ya, I guess the M-12's last on yer 690....cuz it doesn't run

The Pirelli XCMH is similar to the M-12 re: loose stuff.....and aggressive dirt-knobs....

Just looking for the right "in-between " front tire.....maybe the Mitas options will work well:

A friend, Colin, runs this outfit....and I have liked Mitas E09 Dakars in Baja on 450 EXC:

These last better than Conti TKC's....
