I did an overnite camping trip into Kananaskis Country this past w/e which is only about 1.5 hrs from Calgary. One way in is via Canmore AB. on the Spray Lakes Road which is mostly gravel.
My worn out Tourance was challanging.

Great photos.

I thought you guys gave up on those silly streety tires after sliding through the Oregon mud a few years ago.

I don't think it really happened. I didn't see a pic with coffee and a cigar.

Yeah...time for something a bit more aggresive. I put a pair of Mitas E-07
on the Transalp and will be putting a pair on the AT next. I don't believe you guys in the lower 48 can get these due to DOT requirements. Nice tire...and a nice price with free shipping here. Ok...sorry...now i'm rubbing it in. Yup...Cuban cigars...Transalps and Africa Twin's. Your on the wrong side of the 48th parallel Ray.

Mitas E-07 on a TA

Your correct. It's multi-purpose actually. It's a tribute and it keeps my cracked screen together ever since I broke it at NAATS. Those were good times.

The lockwire helps too.

Many thanxs in advance.



Did not get respond to these.....I eventually did some rough measurement and bought this....5'' Rox riser off ebay.


Started to dismount the stock handlebar.....

Mounted on Easton EXP RM mid bend handlebar...

Love the new set up....no snag of cables....turning good as usual.....tend to be throttle happy now.

Mitas E-07 on a TA

I installed this same tire front and back on my AT.

3.000 kms in roughly 2 months an no noticeable wear.

Haven't tried them yet on wet tarmac... but on dry pavement and on the light off-roads I've rode so far, they are brilliant. And that price tag...

Way to go, Mitas!

No noticeable wear sounds good Africa Twin,are they more difficult to fit than TKC's or Escapes?
