Congrats on the purchase North rider, let the Farkling begin
Mitas tyres are used by quite a few ADV riders that I know of, One won't buy anything else, That looks like an E-09 on the back of yours,I have a set of E-08 for road use. You should get good mileage out of it for a dual purpose tyre, and they stick on the road well.
