Yep. I used them a lot before I discovered the Dunlop RR208 and the Desert. The MT21 is as you say a good gripper but wears very fast on the rear. I did my first in between Tennessee and Moab-about 1800 miles . I'm just too mean to change rubber as soon as that. They're fine as you say on the front , but as a "driver"-no thanks .
