Looking at 50/50 tires. Guidance?
Recently a buddy picked up a KLR 650 so I am looking to ride with him off road. Obviously I know his KLR is a better off road machine but I want to try to hold my own. In addition, my son has a 50 and wants to start trail riding. Here is how my bike will be used: commuting 3 to 5 days out of the week (30 miles a day at hwy speeds)and I will be trail riding with him on the weekends. I live in NE Florida so most of the off road terrain is sand/dirt/mud. There are no rocks to contend with. What tires have you had experience with that you would recommend for my application

I tend to buy my tires locally rather than online since my dealer will install the tires for free if you buy it from them. However they don't carry The Heidenau or the Mitas. They are available online though. Again, I am hoping to hear from personal experience if possible
