Mitas E09 is good as far as more aggressive rears go. Hard to change in the bush though. D606 has been my pick for rear for most of the 35000kms my 690 has done. I use aggressive fronts. Dunlop AT81, Michelin AC10, Mitas C19. Last two are DOT. Front and rear combos give me about 3000kms per set

Are those little KTM Powerparts screens that fit to the headlight shroud worth fitting?
Congrats! looks like a nice specimen.

Re: Screen, If you are tall yes.  I'm 6ft as well and takes the wind of my chest and makes 120km/h pretty easy whereas before here by 105 you will start hating life.  having klean air on helmet in the face is great. I've done some pretty steep climbs and downhills and did a few jumps. Screen didn't get in the way.

I'm with Amsterdam on the Motoz back... the rear is probably the best knobbly that you can still use on the street I've ever had. Grips extremely well, sand is awesome with it, gravel is excellent.
The front - my verdict is still out. Sometimes I love how it behaves other times not. It's never let me down though. It's just got some odd characteristics. Like ...it's not gradual. It's got "areas" of grip, when it grips there it's EXCELLENT grip, but if you are inbetween the "areas" it feels vague or something. makes sense?
I think if I do so again I'll put Motoz rear with MT21/D606 front.

I will get one of those screens on order on Monday. Appreciate all the info gents.
