What are the worst riding conditions you'll encounter? Buy tires suitable for the worst.
For pure street tires, Michelin Pilot Road 3 and Bridgestone BT-023 are working great, with maybe a wet road edge to the PR3.
For the type of dual sport that came on the bike, Michelin Anakee 2 is my favorite, and the Shinko 705 and Full Bore Adv. Touring are also an open tread, cheap but short lived rears.
For rougher stuff, the Heidenkau K60 Scout and the (available in Canada) Mitas are good choices. For full knobbies, TKC80, KAROO, or Kenda Big Block are good.
