Hey everyone, I know it is tired topic () but indulge me. The age old dual sport question... So I currently only have the F800GS and ride everything from twisties with my sport bike friends to getting out to some dirt trails this spring/summer. I need a new set of tires. I went from the stock battlewings (which in retrospect were terrible) to the Metzeler Tourances which I liked a lot on road and for fire roads and easy single track. However I am looking to ride with some guys on smaller 'Dual sportier' bikes soon and thinking about getting something more aggressive. I think we may get into trickier terrain and I don't want to hold them up too much. I am worried about sacrificing street performance though. Yes I have read through the many tire threads here, but still don't know what to look for next. Curious to hear everyones thoughts on what they have. Their solutions. etc. Avon's look about the same as my Tourances, so both are an option but it isn't more aggressive offroad. I could just go with this choice again and suck it up on my occasional dirt trips. Heidenau's look good but sound like they are kinda squirrely from the reviews, and really are a pain in the ass to find. TKC's great offroad but not so good on the street and frankly probably wont suit most of my riding commuting here in the city and my shorter trips to the asphalt curves. I am starting to think I just cant avoid buying two sets and running TKC's or Heidenau's for dirt trips and switching back to a 90/10 the rest of the time. Is that the best option? What say you? Do similar riding? Found a balance you like, or are you switching? Dirt front, 'streetier' rear?
