Very popular tyre here in Australia.

I run them on my S10 in tubeless and one of my mates runs tubed ones on his Kato 990. Have used them on my KLR before the S10. Love them!

There was a recall last year on the tubeless 19 inch front as they could suddenly deflate without warning. I switched over to a Heidenau until new Mitas tyres arrived. I will get around 16,000 km out of the rear tyre on my S10.

In summary I would say they are a good all round tyre. Only heavy mud (where a knobby would be the go) would see them fail to grip.

Mitas E-07

Im running the Mitas right now.

E-10 on front
E-07 on rear.

Great combo. 2,500 miles so far on both and the E-10 shows a little wear but the E-07 I can barely notice any wear.
Rode in 3 hour downpour off and on throughout my trip to and from Death Valley Utah. They performed flawlessly in the rain. Cornering just fine also. Dirt they are very nice. Dig in well in the rear for me.

Trading up from an F8 to a SuperT...

Howdy! I maintain a little motoblog (a place to express all the two-wheeled stuff I can't talk about with my lovely wife, because she hates my bike habit). But I thought Tenere folks here might enjoy it. The entry is called Horse Trading. Hope you enjoy it!

Fuel Mileage improvement in 2014?

Can any new 2014 owners give us an idea of the fuel mileage they are getting. With the changes to the 1200cc engine to make it more responsive perhaps there is an upside in fuel mileage as well. I think most 12/13 owners are getting about 45mpg....which unfortunately could be a bit better (one place BMW GSW is ahead). With the big trip south coming up we need to maximize our range...especially as we are 2up with gear. Hopefully we can still get 250 miles per tank.

Its still early but any comments on the 2014 fuel mileage?

I've got a 2012. I've never got 250 miles per tank.

Agree.. 200-220 is the norm in my experience.

Yes, my reserve countdown starts about then and when I fill up, it only takes about 4.5-4.6 gallons, so I should be able to make 250 miles under normal riding conditions, but when I see that countdown start, I get nervous and stop as soon as I see a gas station.

One caveat with the tank ring bags connection bags is to be careful with them if you ride in dusty conditions. The new style (not just the pin in front) is a very complicated (read German engineered) sliding mechanism that can be rendered completely useless in dusty conditions. Once rendered useless, you have no way to put gas in your bike, or get the bag off your bike at all, without dismantling the plate. I started carrying the small allen wrench required to remove the plate, just in case.

The first day I noticed the bag was a little harder to unlatch



the second day I barely got it off at our gas stop, notice no tankbag, it spent the rest of the trip bungied to the back of my wife's DR.



Bags Connection Tank bag mounted on a DR200

That's a little disconcerting. Thanks for the info.

I use a small cable lock. It stays in the tank bag. This one came with a mossberg shotgun. Most places it never gets used but there are some places it gives me some piece of mind.

That's a decent solution , but still just can't believe the bike doesn't have one!

I think most of us walked around the bike twice scratching our head.

I use a similar one from Master. Picked it up at walmart for about 5 bucks. Lives under the front seat till needed.

Can do two helmets, or one helmet and a jacket through the sleeves.

I just carry my helmet with me as those can still be cut pretty easily. As for fuel mileage I am getting 225 before my fuel light comes on and I put about 4.6 to 4.8 gallons in.

Anyone have black touratech crash bars on the blue 2012 bike? I think I am ordering them this week.

I use a similar lock from some random gun I bought. Works great. Seems like I have a bunch of those cable locks lying around
