If you want something more agressive try the Mitas E09 or Golden Tyre GT200.
All are available in 150/70/18.
Can we get the Mitas in USA yet ?

Write a Email to them. In Austria their homepage don't list the E07 and E09 in our sizes, but they are available. I tried the E10 its like a modern TKC :lol but not the tyre for me. Now I ride the E09 and like it a lot.

Also have a look at Golden Tyre: http://www.goldentyreusa.com/
They don't have the GT200/GT205 on the US Site, but on the german: http://www.goldentyre.de/enduro.html

Heidenau

Heidenau K60 is one of the best tires I have seen. Wear in better than some street tires I have run. Check with Craig at CJ Deisgns.

Is there a US store to buy Mitas? All I can find in MX1 Canada.

There might be a local dealer if you use the link to search your state http://www.mitas.eu/index.php?strank...butors-locator

There's one where I live so I'm going to give them a call Monday.

I just went 3000 miles on the Mefo SE and can't for the life of me figure out how people get 7 or 8000 miles?

I hear ya, I got 2000 miles on the last Mefo I purchased. Never again. Dunlop 908 gets me around 3500 before it is done and has much better of road capability in my opinion. I will be trying the Heidenau K74 next, the price is right, but how will it wear? The big knobs on it worry me, Easy to rip those off under the typical 990 throttle use.

Heidenau K60 Scout is one of the the best allrounders
Dunlop 908 is more dirt oriented, but those central big blocks look like they could take some pavement beating just fine (talk to someone that actually used one)
and that Heidenau K74 looks very nice
I choosed Heidenau K60 because i wanted a good on road tyre (it grips well in the wet too if you're not too violent with the throttle) and a decent off road tyre (for a more aggressive off road tyre get a Dunlop or a Mitas E09)
