90% pavement tire recommendations?
I'm currently riding an '07 DRZ 400 SM but am on the verge of buying a new KLR, 2011 or 2012. Thing is, I spent the past 7 months in Moab, UT, riding most of the great trails out there on my DRZ with off-road tires. Now, we're back in AZ and I anticipate doing a lot more pavement, probably primarily, at least for a while. So, my question is: If you would be riding primarily pavement on a KLR, what would be the best and safest tire for pavement riding, city streets and highway? I want more "contact patch" on the pavement than off-road tires provide...... Also, since I've never owned a KLR before, I'd like any thoughts you may be willing to share re: riding the KLR on pavement/highways. Cruising speeds, seat mods. etc. Thanks to all in advance. Ride safe!
