Recommendation for tires?

Hi everyone,

I've read some forums and can't really decide what are the best tires for my use.
I know everyone has their own opinion on tires, but as an adventure rider newbie, I will basically rely in opinions of others before I test it out. I plan to take the AT as my first light off road ride lessons, and slowly learn how to do it properly.

Before my current AT purchase, I have only ridden on road tires. Riding mostly B roads up and down mountains on naked bikes like Sr500, Street Triple and Triumph Bonneviles etc.

What is the best option for mostly road use, but with ability to take it light off road, woods, gravel, etc?

I read Contiential TKC 70 seems to be pretty good? And Michelin Anakee Wild (which are not released yet for the AT).
Is there really a Do It All tire?

The OEM tires doesn't really promote confidence, since I had a near off already on light mud. They're ok on the road, bit tricky in even wet paved road.

Any opinion would be helpful.
Thanks
Rich.
