Hikertrash, are you going to make D2D and Kenai Alaska? Have a couch in Anchorage.
On E09 mileage, I road from Dawson to Inuvik with a guy who road a 990 Adventure up the TAT to Dawson and back to Eagle Plains. He was on the same E07 and looked like he would make it back to VA on that tire.
The E07 is what I had on the rear of my Tiger 955i and it was awesome. Got better traction than a TKC and at 4200 miles had no noticeable wear. Handled much better than expected. Was a royal pain in the ass to mount!!! I mounted the Dakar by hand on a tire stand.
