Thanks for the suggestions guys - especially about DOT legal tyres, even for the more aggressive dirt tyre set. Makes sense to have something that would be OK for an organised event, even if I'm "participating" rather than "racing".

Have seen Michelin AC10 mentioned in a few old posts I searched - are they intended for predominantly hard or soft terrain? What's the wear rate like?

What about the front tyre? My KTM is the first of the RFS series, which all of the reviews at the time criticised the poor steering geometry. Terry Hay and others suggested a different offset triple clamp fixed it, but my budget never stretched that far, and I still haven't found a secondhand set with 17mm offset. I know my technique is quite ordinary, but any extra grip I can get from a good front tyre choice would help a lot.
