Controversial Topic, I Know...

Looking for some tire advice...

Heading out to ride the UTBDR in June on my 2003 KTM 640 Adventure. I'll be riding for 9 days with a buddy and camping most nights. The bike will be loaded. It will be equipped with a Rekluse clutch by the time I leave on the trip.

I currently have a set of Pirelli MT 90 Scorpions on the bike that replaced a set of Mefo Super Explorers.

The Mefos wore like iron on the bike, but when I went to replace them I had purchased a Husqvarna TE 310, which I now use off road, so I decided a bit more tame of a tire would be the better option for the 640.

However, now that I have this trip planned to Utah, I am wondering if I should opt for a more knobby-based tire for the trip...

Thoughts? Recommendations?

Any experience with the MT 90's in sandy terrain?
