Argy, harder rubber compound tyres would be better, I know here in NZ the gravel can be quite sharp and can cut soft compound tyres (the only reason I would avoid unsealed roads) I have done many years of Adventure riding (in NZ it's just fantastic) If I had room in our bike pen a full rigged Tiger would be good (my Girlfriend would object to me kicking out her Harley)
