I had Metzler Tourance on an XT1200 that looked good and worked well in wet and dry conditions.
The tyres I currently have on my ATAS are Pirelli Scorpion Str. They look fairly aggressive but handle really well on the road. I think they improved the look of the bike and I have more confidence on the road and off.

Continental Trail Attack 3 is a great tire is you are looking for a 90/10 type. They warm up fast and have excellent grip on dry and wet.

If you are looking for something a little more aggressive the Pirelli Scorpion MT90 AT could be a good choice for you in the 80/20-ish category.

I have the Bridgestone and have put 12,000 kilometers on them, mostly on road. They are good but not great.
I have heard amazing reviews on the Pirelli.
I will go that way when the time comes.

I had a scorpion trail ii on my previous bike. The best tyre i have ever had on road. Off road itís ok if the road is hard packed but confidence diminishes quickly.
Currently running on tkc70 seems a good trade off between on and off road except for the front tyre that is cupped badly after 1500 kms in the Alps. The dealer told me I should be not that enthusiastic in bends as it results in uneven tyre wear due to hard braking and cornering. He also said all tyres do that. Oops. I have bever experienced it anyway only with this one.
So I am trying after careful research a pair of anakee adventure, mitas 07 or go back to scorpion trail ii.
