    I love those tires. They are surprisingly good ‘on road.’

    No, just the e07

    they say "enduro front" and "enduro rear" on the sidewall

    ratings wise, 507lbs front and 783lbs rear, so im not worried about it. the Dakar version isn't available in the size I ordered for the rear. and I didn't want to put a 140 tire on a 3" rear rim.

    I bought the foam kit instead of a done seat as I think I’ll have an inch of foam put on top, and maybe take some off the hump. Then I can have a cover stitched up for it.

    I’m not crazy about the hump, but I like the shape of the seat from the top. I think this will work out well with a little mod.

    On eBay they have some foam and pan kits and a couple seats.

    For instance, they have the complete cafe seat for $99

    I plan on some mods to the foam so I was stoked to find the foam and pan kit at a bargain
