Dual sport tires for t120

Hey everyone, ive looked through alot of the tire talk on the forum and javent seen much about replacing t120 tires with a dual sport tire. I like the look of the knobby wheels and hit gravel roads on some of my rides. I ride daily commute which is all pavement so i dont want to lose too much traction and have been looling for something no less than 70 % on road 30% off... Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or even knows of any tires that fit the t120. Ive found that these tire sizes are a pain in the dual sport tire world. Any help is much appreciated!

They are available in the proper sizes for the T120.

I'll second the vote for Continental TKC70. If you want even more off road worthiness go with a TKC80 on the front.

Just ordered the Heidenau K60 Scouts. Come well recommended and look cracking on the Bonneville.

Ask some big dual sport riders like the GS or KTMs see what they use . They weight about what a T120 does. My friends swear by Shinkos and they ride tens of thousands of miles a year. They do highway and real off roading.
