    I have an XR 650R and would like to fit it with more road going tires. Is there something like 60% road 40% off road type of tire you could recommend me?

    Have you considered the Continental TKC80?? Surprisingly good stiction on pavement and enough knobs for the dirt....first wear is quick, but the last half of tread lasts longer than first half of wear. The Metzler equivalent wears quicker but may be a more aggressive tread.

    I have a BMW R1150GS with Metzlers on it. They are the best tires hands down. I have tried the Bridgestones and the Michellens but hated both of them. The only tire i would ever put on my bike are Metzler Tourances. I am sure they make a size for your bike. They have extremely agressive models as well.
