Dunlop D606 Dual Sport Tires
Great for a 30/70 or dirtier adventure or if you trailer
These tires are excellent if your next adventure is almost entirely dirt. I used them to do the COBDR and UTBDR back to back. For that purpose they were great but they don't wear well at all. Riding the 200 miles home on asphalt was scary with the squared off knobs. In other words I wouldn't buy these for my normal 60/40 mix because I'd be changing them in a few weeks. they are easy to mount and provide great traction in all surfaces except asphalt.

Best adventure riding dual purpose tire (70% dirt/ 30% road)
This is a fantastic tire. The only rear tire I use. Grip is excellent and tread life is great. I get about 5 - 7k miles out of em. This is the first time I've used the front 606 on the bike. Some reviewers hate the front 606 so I've stayed away. But I must say that I've very pleasantly surprised. Great grip and the wear is similar to the rear. They are pricey compared to the cheap ones but I think this setup is worth it. I use them on my '05 DR650

Great off road dual sport tire
I put this on the rear of my DR650, as others have said it works well off road. It rides fine on the street as well, no il handling characteristics. I got a solid 2500 miles out of it before it was shot. This is the tire I will use on my TAT trip, gonna put a new one on about halfway. I use my bike to commute daily to work, round trip about 8 miles. The rest of my riding is off road on the weekends, I go ride about 200 mile each weekend.

Wow! Whata tire! Did 275 miles on asphalt and broke them in on the way to Hatfield & McCoy trails and two days of off roading were awesome. The bike stuck very well. In and out of holes, weaving through big ruts with no problem. Great traction on and off road and DOT!

Tire holds up on street, and off road. It tracks well at high speed on the road, and even does well when it is wet.

The tires were fresh and arrived in a couple of days.

Great DS Tire
I've used this tire for the Western TAT, Death Valley and Centrail NV desert. I'm usually running a 606 rear and TKC80 front on a DR350. Excellent in the dirt and good grip on the street.

Probably the best knobby for an enduro bike.
This tire was purchased for a Suzuki DRZ 400 which I use for the back,back roads. I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina. There are a lot of gravel roads and some trails, but it still takes a lot of pavement riding to get to them. For this tire change I chose to go with an off road tire. I have been very pleased with the Dunlop 606s. They have great traction on pavement and allow me to keep in the gas on curvy gravel roads. The downside is that while the front tire shows no wear, the back is probably going to be gone in 1500 miles because of all the pavement riding.
