I was using Michelin Deserts and designed the route around the mileage I get from those. I had scheduled tyre changes at the start of the off-road at the Poland - Ukraine border, then another at Astana in Kazakhstan and a final one in Irkutsk in Siberia. Each of the three tyre legs was approx 6000 km. I think Terry could have done with one less tyre change, using two sets for 9000 km each ... thats how durable they were.
He got a little less grip than me on the Deserts, but not enough less to make a noteable difference in the speeds we were riding. For the little money they cost, they are an impressive tyre for this kind of work.
