My R1100RL and a Question About Tires

Here's my '99 R1100RL after a few modifications to better suit it to my riding style and requirements:

It's got the tubeless wire wheels in a 18" on the front and a 17" on the rear.
Front tire size is 110/80 - 18 and the rear is 150/70 - 17. Currently has Dunlop Sportmax radials fitted.
I would really like to install some dual sport tires like the Shinko 705 but am having trouble finding any in these sizes.
My goal with this bike is to be able to ride gravel roads with the ease that I ride asphalt.

Any ideas on tires that would accomplish this and are available in these sizes would be greatly appreciated.
