Pirelli Scorpion Trail Dual Sport Front Tire
A good tire for mostly street riding, able to handle fireroads
I run Scorpion Trails on my Buell Ulysses, and regularly take it down fire roads and trails. These tires are great on dry gravel, but do not handle well in mud. They're great on the road, which is why they are the tire I use 95% of the time for this bike. When anticipating riding in mud, I switch out to TKC80's.

Good ROAD Tire
This came stock on my Tiger800 and is a pretty good road tire. When I say road, I mean nice, smooth asphalt. For me, any imperfections, potholes, seams, etc. are a nightmare with this tire. The tire has caused me to lay my bike down twice at low speeds. I think it is great for nice road use but I have no confidence at all on rough surfaces.

Great mixed use tire.
Bought this as a replacement rear for my Honda CB500X. First one wore out at only 4200 miles. Been keeping this one at 42psi and it is wearing much better with 2000 miles so far. For the price I'd prefer a dual compound for better durability. Tire is only labelled as 5% offroad but has surprising grip on dirt and loose gravel.

Good for what it is
This tire is good for what it is. It is not a real off road tire nor is it a sport tire. It is a comprise of the two leaning much more to the road/sport category. I don't have any real complaints. I got a about 14000k out of mine. That was probably 35% city and commuting with the rest touring and weekend hooning around on the curvy roads. I ride a 1200 Multistrada.
It handles well in the rain. I never got any shocks when riding in some pretty heavy rain.
I only had it off pavement a few times on packed beach road with quiet a bit of sand. They seemed ok fir that. I am not much of an off road type rider though.

Good all around tire.
Bought this tire for a friend's F800 GS. Really like the overall performance for 80% + road with long dirt / gravel tracks.

I got these tires as stock since Feb 2013, I am planning to change tires to something more off road than as to road bias tires. After 20,000KM on these tires, its threads shows it can go for another 3-6 more months if I don't abuse it. I've been on 1,000km trips two ways on these tires for 10 hours straigh on each way, that's 2,000KM/20hours! Still the tires shows its strengths. Downside is, when its raining, you have to careful on the bends and braking, it's slippery at times. Besides that, these tires has made memories!
