TKC 80's are a decent 50-50 tire, but I prefer Dunlop 606's. Similar mileage, slightly more offroad focus, and usually much cheaper. Dunlop 908 on the rear is another great choice for big bore dual sports.
I've seen a number of 'melted' and shredded 908s out here on bikes like 990s. Not worth it for Oz outback.
