I just finished 8200km trip from Estonia to Georgia and back with my 950 Superenduro (ride report coming soon ), using Mitas E-07 front and rear. Opposite to others experience I would say they are great 50/50 tyre (at least rear) and looking at the tires now I believe they will last another such trip!
Positive - great grip on dry asphalt, hard packed gravel and rocks - I feel they may be even better than Dunlop 908RR or Motoz Tractionator Desert HT I used before. Not so great on sand or mud, but rear is surprisingly good tho! And they are rated up to 190km/h.
Negative - not so great on wet asphalt, especially front, I had some not so great moments during my trip. Front feels not suitable for soft surfaces like mud or sand. What makes big difference is tyre size - 140 and 150 rears have much bigger blocks than narrower sizes. I will use another E-07 rear any time but will choose another front.
