I'm sure any day now these tires will be available in the USA....
I sure hope so, because they really are a great Euro brand of tires and the more options in the US the better but....it's truly been this
In the end it sure makes for an entertaining vendor read, otherwise known as "How not post about your company on ADV"
Nearly everything I've read about them has been good.
Think you could sell a bunch of them.......
If you could only get them here
They did for a bit here: http://mitasmx.com
Then something happened. 1st the customer service went downhill. Then the phone/email went unanswered. Then the website went none updated and finally
Tough to say what exactly transpired, as they were starting to stock some dual-sport tires (in addition to the good dirt bike tire selection they had in stock) so there was hope...then it all fell apart.
The Aussies absolutely love em, especially the E07.
Read reports in OZ subsection of ADV that on many dual-sport rides almost everyone has an E07 on the rear.
Love the E07... Will order again from Canada if I have to.
How many miles on that tire?
I'd have to check.. but I would say around 11K
I LOVE my E07's This is my second set on the f800. I got about 11000k on my first set. About 9000k was fully loaded and 8000 of that was pavement.
Do you notice anything different with the yellow stripe one (dakar version?)
come on Mitas get these tires in the US for users and resellers alike!!!
I've only just started running it and I only have 1000km so far.
I'm running it with the E-10 up front. What do you have up front?
I was looking for something a little better than the TKC up front (stiffer casing, better gravel/dirt grip) without trading the pavement grip and life. Time will tell but so far so good. Not much dirt that isn't iced/snow yet....soon though.
I'm using an E07 up front as well.
I have used a set of the E10 rear and E09 front and they were awesome. I managed to get a bit over 5000k with 2500 of that being pavement on a fully loaded bike.
I ran an E-09 rear with a Scorpion Rally front last summer and it was a good combo too. The E-09 drives and brakes well but I find it steps out easily in corners (not a huge surprise with the "bar" tread) with all the power on tap. I was wondering whether an E-10 in the back would have a bit more cornering bite as it has more side lugs...
I tried a Scorpion rally last spring and definitely didn't like the way if felt on dirt roads. I found it kinda darted from side to side, and didn't give me much confidence. It could be due to the sucky stock front boingers. It did wear well though. I went back to the Pirelli MT-21 up front.
I do like the E-09 Dakar out back.
Well after 7500 Miles I have to say I am quite pleased with the Mitas E07 on the rear of my F800GS. It worked super everywhere I took it. No flats despite pulling one nail and one staple out of the tread. This was with a 50/50 mix of tarmac and Ozarks gravel/dirt roads.
What sizes these tars come in?
4.00 - 18?
I'd still be interested in becoming a distributor for these.
