The Versys is the third Kawasaki I've owned. I rode a 2003 Nomad for 12 years and put about 100K on it and a KLR that I rode for several years and put about 25K on it but I liked the, ready for the obvious, versatility of the Versys. I bought a 2016 that was new and want to find out what kind of tires are best for desert dirt road travel. There are more dirt roads in AZ than paved and some towns are only accessible by dirt road, so think, graded, sometimes washed out but not too bad. Any ideas? I was looking at the Shinko 705 or Pirelli Scorpion STR but am open to suggestion.... and experience.
