Bridgestone TW203 AND TW204. Just get them both and call it good. This combo is very good on the pavement and still pretty darn good for dry conditions off road.

If you are never planning to leave the pavement there are a couple options. Bridgestone makes a tw203 and Shinko makes the sr428 and both are a road oriented tread. I personally would also change to a matching rear with either to keep the handling right.

Otherwise if you do plan to go offroad i can personally vouch for the Shinko Sr244. i find it really good on the pavement and good off road too.

Shinko SR428 Dual Sport Tires are good replacements for the Bridgestones. I have them on my bike and have used them off road before. They are squirmy as hell in pea gravel, but on plain dirt they handle surprisingly well.

Maybe its just me, but even my super aggressive MT21 handles well on the road. If I am pushing past the limits of that tire, I am scraping pegs and or seriously taxing the limits of the brakes. Even after 1.5 years and 2k miles, I can see almost no wear. Glad you got some street shoes for your TW. Even if I was going to do a lot of street, I would look for a pretty off road focused tire.
