"The next best are the Pirelli MT21's. Cheaper, good traction if you have them pumped up, when they let go it is very predictable. These will start to slide a little long before they let go completely."

Anything else you'd add as advice for me?
I'm up in Seattle. Just went to the M/C show, it was PACKED.

KLR's get great traction. I'd put a TKC on the front and any dualsport tire on the back. Good combo of wear and traction.
