There has long been a debate about which tire is the best to use on pavement and off-road. Here is a little video discussing my thoughts on the subject and my recent use of the Motoz Tractionator Adventure tire.
Below are some comparison photos of the Tractionator and a TKC80 which were ridden on the same ride and used the same. The Tractionator was on my GS and the TKC80 was on a KTM 1090 that followed me. Both these tires were brand new when we left on our trip and when we finished the Idaho BDR, we had ridden 1540 miles

I hope this helps you in your decision on what tires to buy and like I said, there really is no bad answer to what you use. It's a matter of preference and cost analysis, of which I've will be choosing the Motoz from now on.
