    Is there a US store to buy Mitas? All I can find in MX1 Canada.

    There might be a local dealer if you use the link to search your state http://www.mitas.eu/index.php?stran...orth-america-dealers-and-distributors-locator

    There's one where I live so I'm going to give them a call Monday.

    I just went 3000 miles on the Mefo SE and can't for the life of me figure out how people get 7 or 8000 miles?:huh

    I hear ya, I got 2000 miles on the last Mefo I purchased. Never again. Dunlop 908 gets me around 3500 before it is done and has much better of road capability in my opinion. I will be trying the Heidenau K74 next, the price is right, but how will it wear? The big knobs on it worry me, Easy to rip those off under the typical 990 throttle use.:lol3

    Heidenau K60 Scout is one of the the best allrounders
    Dunlop 908 is more dirt oriented, but those central big blocks look like they could take some pavement beating just fine (talk to someone that actually used one)
    and that Heidenau K74 looks very nice
    I choosed Heidenau K60 because i wanted a good on road tyre (it grips well in the wet too if you're not too violent with the throttle) and a decent off road tyre (for a more aggressive off road tyre get a Dunlop or a Mitas E09)
