    I am not sure what bike you are even riding this month so I will guess it's primary street orientated.😉 Your rim size will most likely limit your choice. The 90/10 tires are surprising well suited to gravel and dry two track off asphalt roads. I ran the Standard Metzler Tourance tire on my 04 VS for 8 years in sand, mud, desert and loved them. The Bridgestone Battle Wings are my 90/10 choice now and I have chased Jschaf & Durk around the curvature of SE Ohio asphalt with no Issues. Pirelli Scorpion also makes a good 90/10. If you feel more off road capabilities are needed then I recommend a additional bike is a must. More aggressive off road tire will bring your speed and confidence level up off road but then you will be limited by suspension and ground clearance. On asphalt the 50/50 tires and to some extent the 80/20's I have tried "fall in" quickly on asphalt corners and may require a adjustment to your style. The Metzlers and Bridgestone are very forgiving and provide solid feedback when pushed to there on asphalt. Good luck in your quest.👴 (YMMV)

    You will sell it and get something else before it needs tires.

    My bike Sunny has been entered into the "Cool Ride 2019" contest at the Overland Expo West ADV Rally taking place May 17-19th in Flagstaff AZ (I'll be attending) If I win, I get a free pass! Take a moment and go vote for Sunny! https://www.overlandexpo.com/cool-ride#view=gallery&for=eLV0JkwRBy8

    Great, once the stock ones are done I might try those. I don’t plan to be riding aggressive on road any more and want to occasionally try to go through fire roads and light off roads just to get to a spot for good pics etc. Not yet ready for full on off road more yet.

    I'm not gonna tell you anything you prolly don't already know, but the Shinko 705s are pretty much 80:20 and they can be railed just as hard as your skills and lean angle will allow. Not good in anything more technical than 2-track dirt or gravel and useless in mud. The 804/805s are more aggressive and prolly a better choice if you actually want to do both on/off-road. Surprisingly capable in the twisties but don't expect great life out of 'em. Even more capable are the Dunlop D606s but more of a 50:50 tire and not appropriate for the large heavy DS bikes.

    Got a chance to enjoy a nice curvy asphalt Z1K ride with the wife & Spyder out to "Boondocks BBQ" in McConnelsville and back home in Hocking Hills. Weather was great and the spring vews into the wood line with the lite green color starting to bud out was just right. Still have to watch for the winter gravel in corners but the best part was that "Max Power" and his wife "Mid Range" were test riding my Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom the entire day and seemed to enjoy a well sorted bike on a mixture of roads. 100 mile lunch ride. 78, 555, 669, 216, 595, all in great shape
