I am running TKC 80 front and K60 Super Scout rear. Very happy with the combo.

K60 on my ADV - Aired down for extended gravel road riding (25 psi or so), very good on the street.

Ktm adv 950

The Karoo2 (not the T) with a Tubliss setup has worked REALLY well for extended runs with tarmac and lots of mixed off-road. 10000+km.

The MT21 is really nice if you don't need alot of distance.

The K60 rules the rear.

I've gone through a couple Pirelli MT16s on the front. I like them a lot. They're a pretty sturdy full knobby and wear better than you think on the road. I got about 4000 miles out of the last one. The knobs are reassuring when you're in the dirt.

REALLY interested in trying this, but not sure about the non-DOT status. 80mph is a pretty low speed rating, not that I spend a lot of time over 80.
When in doubt, take it as a compliment.

What kind of pressures do you like for the rally pro on the front?

When in doubt, PIN IT! It may not help, but it'll sure end the suspense...

The Pirelli Skorpion Rally is my favourite option atm: it's my third one and it's great in both gravel and tarmac.
I concur. Regarding the MT-21, it doesn't hold that well in dirt and is squirmy on pavement if you like to ride aggressively. It's not reliable in the wet either, breaking traction without warning.
