I know it's not a lot of miles at this point, but I have had my XR650L outfitter with MEFO Explorer 99s for about 1000 miles. Mostly do work commutes on highway and city as well as some short dual sport jaunts in the evenings and weekends. On the road she sticks very well and I am not easy on her at all. Love hitting the twisties enroute to the farm country where I get off road. They are certainly a notch above the stock Trail Wings on or off road IMHO. While the mileage is only 1000 miles at this point, they show very little sign of wearing and I blew out my Trailwings in about 2000 miles. She has not been in DEEP mud but seems to shed the thick stuff pretty well as long as you keep the rpms up. She climbs over logs like a goat but I don't have much time in serious rocks yet. In grass she digs hard and you can go up pretty steep hills. Also very stable at speed both on and off road. You can fly on dirt roads and I have had no head shake or rear end shimmy. They feel very solid and planted. I know it is still early and I still have a lot of testing to do, but for a 50:50 tire, I am REALLY happy with the MEFOs. I wanted a tire that would grip on and off road and still have some longevity. Seems to be working well at this point and I wanted to thank the guys here who pointed me to this tire. I got them at KLR650.com Speaking of spending money, thanks to this board I also picked up an Olympia AST jacket and a pair of Rev'It Inferno gloves (at Bob's BMW). What an OUTSTANDING jacket. I ride just about everyday and this time of year I am usually wiping frost off my seat in the mornings. This jacket really blocks the wind and is warm. Love the tons of pockets and vents. The Rev'It Inferno gloves are extremely comfortable and I mainly wanted a pair of medium weight gauntlet gloves for summer to say 40F. They fill that bill well but will also note they run small on the sizes. Normally wear an XL glove and had to go to a 2XL which fits perfectly. The quality seems to be very great and time will tell how they hold up. They were as comfortable as the Held gloves I tried at a much lower price. They even have a built in reflective strip as shown in the pic. I am pretty much a noobie on this board, but have been riding bikes for the past 30 or so years. Got away from my dirt bikes some years ago and missed it terribly. I still ride my 1984 VF1100Sabre but find the XR650L gets out even more. What a FUN bike to ride. It's good to be back on dirt and what an incredible board this is.
