    How about Pirelli MT-21s? I ran them on my KLR. Of course the front was 21", but the rear was 17", worked well offroad, and DOT.

    Back when I had a WR250R the MT-21s were my favorite tire. I'd usually do a MT-21 front with a MT-43 trials tire rear. Just a great all-around dualsport set up. If I get dirt wheels that's probably the tires I'll go with.

    Several people have put a 120/80/17 rear on the front. Not sure the tire is as much the problem off-road as the width though.
