    for the Canadians in the bunch you can get the Mitas tires at mx1canada.com. Great folks. Great tires.

    the Mitas E09 Dakar front and rear are my current fav's. Although I still haven't tried the Dunlop.

    cheers,

    TKC-80 (130/17 size) :deal

    What happened with that tire? was it mounted on the standard F8 rim? did you ride it to the end without incident?
    asking because I have also a left over of those from my dakar and would be glad to use it???

    Have you seen the Vee Rubber VRM163? Looks like a great Street/Dirt mix for a great price.

    You could try www.rideonadv.com or revzilla for the heidenaus as well... they are worth every penny, and will outlast shinkos by a substantial margin. The first set of K-60s I put on my 800gs went almost 20K miles. I've got almost 5k miles on the K-60s I mounted on my Super Tenere 6 weeks ago... they still look almost brand new.

    Nice thing too with mc superstore is the tires are really fresh usually within 6 months of manufacture.
