Yes, you can't have an hard wearing tyre if you want grip. I think I figured that out a long time ago.
I'm wary of putting any Continental tyre on the front rim - why? No grip. IMO
I put the gripest tyre I could lay my hands on the front, everytime.
I have no problem with them, ran Road Attacks on the TL1000S, have Trail Attacks on the Africa Twin and Classic Attacks.
Oddly quite a few are made in Korea fronts and Germany rears.
A pity there are not decent dual compound tyres like Pilot Roads for older bikes (which are on the DR780)
