    Hi,
    This is my 3rd year going from MN to the Arctic. I have done the last 2 years on the old E-07. My bike is a Super Tenere. In 2017, I brought everything being my first time. I rode the Dempster, south Canol and some of the north Canal and all parts in between. That was 9500 miles and then another 5000 miles at home over the remainder of that year.
    I put on a standard E-07 on the front, E-07+ on the rear. My bike is also lighter this year. I rode the north Canol and Dempster. At 6200 miles, it is gone. VERY unhappy with this new tire. 20190621_150756.jpg

    I had a Continental put on, ran to Prudhoe Bay and back. Just washed the mud off the bike. Here is how the tire held up.

    Came here to chime in. Used to run a non + Dakar on my old GS and was very impressed with mileage. Looked to get around 8-10k.

    Now with my new to me 2014 R1200GS, I got the E-07+ rear, and after only 3,500 miles of very hard off road and pavement, it's almost completely toasted. I absolutely hate this, and it makes it's previous dominance over the TKC80 (due to life) completely gone.

    I have sourced a Dakar ply rear that I'll be slapping on and will see how that fairs.

    The front + ply appears to be wearing well. I expect to get about 10k out of it, maybe a bit more.

    All in all, I can't recommend the + ply rear at all.

    yup, agree with above, on a 990 the rear + is disappearing before my eyes.

    absolutely no concerns with performance, even on wet road, however.
