* 1200 miles, 10% pavement, much dirt @ 80 mph, Kings of the West rally
* 900 miles, 35% paved highway, Death Valley dual sport trip
So, take that, plus the fact that daily routes in Dakar are 450 miles, 50% pavement, all at high speeds.
Front mousses last the same, plus then I move them to my trail bike and use them for an entire additional season.
As Ned said, MEFO mousse are far superior in our testing. And they come in lots of sizes for even better fit in non-Michelin tires.
What are you waiting for? Just try it. You'll like it.
That is quite an endorsement. MEFO mousse on the radar now!
Turns out I like the rain, easier to Spin, Skid and Slide.
