Zuber, we haven't met yet - but could you say just a little about what you like about the Pirelli's (which ones?) and TKC's? I'm new to riding, have a KLR that for now I'll be riding mostly in fairly easy dirt/gravel (riding pavement getting there) and am trying to decide between MT21's, TKC's, Kenda Big Blocks (K784), Michelin T63's, and D606's.

KillerD and Limited Slip recommended the T63's because of good street performance, though they reminded me that opinions about tires are all over the board. LS also said my current Avon Gripsters would be fine, given what terrain I'm riding and my (low) skill level. Mostly I want to get set up for a 1000-mile or so trip this summer almost entirely on gravel and dirt.
