There seems to be a big Michelin PR3 fan club on this site, so before the chorus starts, let me say that I'm happy with Dunlop Roadsmarts. They will give you good mileage and good wet grip on pavement, but they are street tires, so dirt use will be sub-optimal. Sounds like that's less of a concern for you now that you have another bike for the dirt.
I think a lot of people here have been turned off to Dunlop by the stock tires that came on the bike, but those are an old design. I think Roadsmarts are a good sport-touring choice and the Q2 has long been my favorite sport tire, so don't judge all Dunlops by the ones you got when you bought your Versys. I can't wait to try to the Q3 on my sportbike, having heard such great things about them from the people I know and trust who have tried them.
I've been known to put a new Q2 on the sportbike for a track day and remount the old front Q2 on the Versys, along with the Roadsmart rear, and get thousands more street miles out of it. I know, some sticklers say don't mix. But at the pace I ride the Versys, I don't worry about it much.
Whitehorse Press is going out of business so it's time for a final sale. Signed copies of my book are now $10 with free shipping in the U.S. while they last.
