i never said that. i just pointed out how in the 130-17" size, mefo explorers are $150 while other popular ones are $50 range. my point was hopefully seeing the E07 in 130-17" for around $100 range. I can tell that your E07 rear is your best tire for the ADV market. The 2 most important sizes are
-130-17" (tube)
-150-17" (tubeless)
this covers 75% of ADV bikes used in the US.
I'd suggest there are a lot of riders who would be interested in 18" rears

What bike has a 130/17?
Beemers Past and Present: 74 R90S, 77 R100RS, 85 K100RS, 2x 87 K100RS, 96 R1100GS (getting hacked), 99 R1100S, 2002 R1150GS, 2005 F650 Dakar, 81 GL500/Velorex
Plus the occasional Triumph, BSA, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki and KTM but who's counting
