Dunlop D606 Dual Sport Tires
good all around knobby
This tire is a great all around knobby. It's strength is in the dirt / gravel but it handles really well on tarmac as well. You will have to allow more room to stop on tarmac compared to a street oriented tire for the simple reason there is less of a contact patch on the road, but thats the reason it's so good in the dirt. Life is average for an aggressive knobby, 3000 miles for me. The majority of my riding is dirt or gravel so this tire works really well for those conditions. Revzilla is a great company!

Well made tire, easy to spoon on and seat the bead, unlike other cheaper tires I've tried.
Bought these as a 3rd set of tires for a 2012 KLX250, they were super easy to mount, unlike other cheaper tires I've tried. I studded them and am using them for winter commuting. Even with the studs these tires have great traction for a knobby. I didn't even need to balance them(I would if I had to slab it for more than 100mi), they seem well made enough that there is no noticeable unbalanced feeling.

Works for me
'09 KLR (yeah, these are pretty $$$ for a KLR ;-). Aside from the howl on pavement, no negatives. Trust them to take me where the cell towers don't reach, and get me home again. Regardless of the weather, or the surface.

Excellent choice for the more aggressive adventure rider
Excellent choice for the rider that wants to spend more time offload than Tarmac. Don't get me wrong, this tire grips the pavement really well and will provide more confidence than it really should. If you are looking for a tire that can ride the highway and then do aggressive dirt riding this is a great choice. If you are doing more street use and just fire roads, I would choose a different tire (heidenau K60) as it will last much longer due to its tread design.

A reliably good dual sport tire.
Surprisingly good traction on and off road. I buy at least one of these every year.

awesome so far
Klr650, was running IRC GP1 prior to these, got 2700 miles out of those. The 606 feels way better in the dirt. Rode trail with then and was impressed with their bite. Feel stable in the street as well.

Absolutely awesome tire for a DOT knobby, performed flawlessly offroad in all conditions from gritty sandy hill climbs, big boulders, wet grass, deep sloppy mud...they do it all!

May Melt on Big Bikes
Works great if you really do ride 10% street... if you roar down the highway on a big bike KTM 950 / 990 these lugs can "melt" off the tire. That being said, these tires ROCK on my 450!
