    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.

    Hey folks I received a reply from MX1 on the recall as it pertains to the supply they are selling and I've posted Heather's reply below:

    Sounds like they are taking care of their customers interests.

    I'll be ordering a set for my Wee when the new stock comes in.

    Hi Ron, sorry for the late reply,
    We do have a outlet warehouse in Richmond BC. We stock the tires here and distribute from this location. We have a small display in the front of our warehouse for customers that like to pick up orders or view products before purchasing.
    You can get location information and product info at our site mx1canada.com
    Cheers

    Hi, Yes all the EF-07 are DOT approved, this is a FIM tire used for on and off road competitions around the world. Tire appears to have lower knob height than most off road knobby tires, and therefore not so squirmy at higher hwy speed. I have had one on the back of my EXC530 and did over 3000km of pavement riding and can't believe how little ware there is to the tire. It uses Kevlar fibers mixed in the rubber compound and makes for a very long lasting tire. It's not as sticky as some of the C-18 and C-20 Mitas tires however ware factor is very good for a knobby DOT tire.

    Reviving....and looking for feedback.06 KTM950 Adv currently running Mefo SE on rear and Heidenau on front. Been a good combo but after a few years, the rear is starting to degrade (09 build date - guess they do that over time..) Front still seems OK but would like to replace as a pair (or keep the front a bit longer and swap out when necessary). Would like a long-lasting 50/50 tire and I'm thinking of the Mitas E-07. What do people think? A good replacement for my current setup? Has anyone been using the E-07? Any good deals to be had?Thanks all,Matthew

    Currently have over 15,000 km on a rear E-07 on a DR . Been really happy with them and wouldn't hesitate to replace with same except that i want to try a different tread pattern , namely a big block pattern ( K784 , 804/5 , or TKC 80 ) .My use has been true 50/50 . . . The tire center is worn down to a smooth center , but even at that there is still 4 mil to the carcass and the side chevrons are still well in play . I'd bet i could get 20,000 if i really had to .Full disclosure : i am extremely judicious with my application of the throttle . Coming from a road bicycle , mountain bike , honda TLR background one of my guiding principles is " make traction , don't break traction " so i never spin the rear wheel , which I'm sure would take some of the fun factor out of the equation for many riders , but suits me fine for where and how i ride . Plus , I'm a cheap bastard and try to get the most out of my consumable components .As for performance , i never felt the tire lacking for traction on the mostly dry FSR's i ride . For comparison , i do the Hurley , lillooet lake , harrison west open sections at 70-90 kph , slower in the corners , and tractoring where required ( doctors' point hill ) . On pavement , the bike likes to roll upwards of 110-120 on the sea to sky 99 , Duffy lake . Paired with a Mefo explorer on the front , the bike has felt solid in dry conditions . I don't ride a lot in the rain . I don't do any peg scraping stuff , but I'll bet a more skilled rider could . Fwiw , the mefo probably still has an honest 5000 km left in it , some cupping . I would have paired the E-07 on the front , but Colin was out of stock when i purchased tires .Run pressures of 15-25 front , 18-28 rear . Rider weighs prolly 180 fully geared , with 10-15 pounds of shit strapped on the rack .

    I've got the e07s on my 950 and I can confirm that they are able to be railed on the street like a sport bike without issue. Haven't experienced them off-road much yet but will soon.
