I used Mefo tires riding through Central America and South America (disclaimer: yes, I was sponsored by Twisted Throttle who sells them). But that was a huge part of the deal for me: I only used two sets of tires!!! One from the USA to Panama City, the other from Bogota to Buenos Aires. I got almost 10,000 miles out of the rear in each case, although they were pretty slick at the end. That's a killer deal for me because this girl doesn't like to change tires any more than she has to! (Although I'll change Questors any time... )

FWIW, I still run MEFOs now even though I have to pay for them.
