Thanks there Dave sounds encouraging for sure.
Colin got back to me and the E10's are a wee bit less aggressive than the E09's and he said they would wear better. He suggested I get a pair of E07's Dakar (longer wear) and he's had some buddies that have done the Dempster on them and they have performed well.
But I found out that on Dec 21/12 Mitas had a recal on the E07's which included Canada, so I've sent a not to Colin to find out if any of his stock was affected.
