I rode my 950SE from Los Angeles to Montana, and back this past summer. Totaled just over 4000 miles round trip. Rode hundreds of mile off road through Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. Rode thousands on slab at 80+ MPH. Can't speak highly enough about the Dunlop 908 rear and TKC front. It was a brilliant combo. I know a lot of guys love the Mefo, but when you're in the dirt, there's just no substitution for real knobs.

I thought the tire wore really well. I started with a brand new tire and the shot below was from the last day of my 4000 mile ride.

Not to hijack, but I bought a set of these to run to Cabo and back. Do you think they will last 2,500 of Baja (maybe 200 miles of pavement)?

I was thinking about shipping a set down to La Paz or Cabo but would be easier not to.

Baja combo

Pirelli rally scorpion pro front
MEFO Rear
On your 50 50 riding

If bike was smaller single cylinder. .I would run same front with pirelli mt43 rear.
Friends made fun on such combo on my 525 and after 3 years that I sold the 525, that is what theire wearing on the rear.

Yes, but that 200 miles of pavement for the front isn't my cup of tea. The rear is great. There are better choices for the front. MT21, 606, Pirelli Rally and some like the TKC 80 but it has a soft sidewall compared to other tires so air up to help avoid pinch flats.
