C-17 & E-09 on DRZ400

In May 2014 I'll be riding 5700km across Australia- Airlie Beach to Freemantle- with no tyre changes. My choices so far are: Dunlop D606 (not keen on them), Pirelli MT-21 (enjoy the rear, but not sure about the life span- supposedly it will make it).......

But I'd like an opinion of using the Mitas E09 rear with C-17 front. (don't bother mentioning the E09 front- not enough dirt traction for my liking.... the rears are predictable) I've no doubt the E09 rear will make the distance on the 400, but what about the C17? I ran C21's in the Aus Safari & know that they wouldn't make it.


Have you ever noticed that when you're out on the bike, nothing else matters?
