Front tire choice

I know everyone is sick of tire threads but I am in a wierd spot.
I am building a custom BMW R1100 with inverted telescopic forks on and a 21" front wheel instead of the telelever and 19" front.

Since almost no one has a 21" front tire on any BMW GS or GSA I have no reference for what is a good front tire for a heavier adventure bike.

Even if there are guys who ride dirt on GSs they seem to like a street bias.

What are you Orange folks using for a dirt biased tire on your big bikes?

I know I should not waste my time with my piggy, but it is what is.

I used D606 tires on my 530 excr and was not a fan in the dirt. they were just mediocre on street and on dirt. I usually used a 606 rear with a D752 front...not street legal but it worked great on pavement and was the best on dirt by far.

I am running a Kenda Big Block on the rear for a starter, we will see how that works, but I am curious on the front.

I know I do not belong here on this page, but I am in a wierd middle spot. Thanks for any input you folks have, I do love my Orange
it is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission
