    They are @ 50% used, on the middle and also on the sides :evil
    I'm happy with them, they are very good on all terrains,
    and they drift on wet roads, like all the tires !


    I'll buy asap a set of E-07 Dakar, I just hope they'll be ok for the next 8000 km, It's the time for holydays,
    Germany and then French Pyrenees + some rides the sundays between the trips ... :D

    My mechanic can get the whole range (that is brought into Oz) without any trouble at all.

    I have been swapping my E07's with E10's lately for various trips, and along the way, have bought another set of E07's as replacements in anticipation of my current ones being just about flogged.

    I am aware of age issues for tyres (UV light / ozone /etc), causing such things as sidewall cracking, but I don't expect to be hassled by that, as it is unlikely that I won't wear them out long before any of those issues arise,
    ... but, ... in the meantime, what is the best way to store the unused ones; lying flat, or standing on their tread?

    I assume if lying flat, it is not a good idea to compress them by weight of other tyres on top?

    Does it matter in either case?

    Any additional feedback of the E10, particularly the Dakar? The E09 Dakar i had on the DR cracked on the center knobs with still a lot of tread left and the Karoo I put on the back (800XC) is vanishing quicker than I ever wanted :(

    Can't comment on the E10 Dakar but the standard E10 and the Karoo are the two worst wearing tyres I have had on the rear of my 1150.
    The E09 Dakar is my tyre of choice now. Haven't had any problems at all.

    Sorry if this has been asked over and over...using a small poxy phone so hard to search...tablet dead.

    BMW sticker says 2.2/2.5BAR solo with no load. This is higher than the rear tyre max load/pressure marking.

    Is there a recommended pressure from Mitas, or should I just experiment?

    Will try 2.0/2.2BAR for now.

    Any more current reviews of the E10 Dakar rear in a 150/70 17 TL size?

    Looking for a possible replacement with longer klms in it for a TKC80 fitted to a 500 Honda.
