There are no dramas with the tubed versions, I've just replaced a front one on my R100GS with 20,000Km on it.

If Mitas are interested in increasing market share in Aus then they need to join the modern world and get distribution a little more customer friendly. I've just been told by my local agent here in Sydney that the tyre ordered on Tuesday "may" arrive today from Melbourne via Australia Post. The company I work for regularly sends items by courier for overnight delivery Melbourne to Sydney with no issues whatsoever. And this is after I have paid the freight cost on the item. It had better be a good tyre.

Cheers, badmanners.

Oh the Bike ..




You may be able to notice some defined exposed 'threads on the wall - It seems this maybe where the wall collapsed - or where she ran flat - Mitas can determine it when they study the tyre -




And I now have a smiley face scar .........

Certainly a bit TMI in some of those pics, you must be in a world of pain, I know I was. Decent painkillers (I hope) and a stubbie should help a bit.

Ouch!

My suggestion is to have your collarbone pinned/plated to speed the healing.

I put up with 6 months delayed healing after #3 fracture on my right clavicle before having a Richwill pin placed. it healed in 3 weeks once stabilized! Had I had it pinned at #1 probably #2&3 might not have happened.

I had a 40 mm tek screw through my back tyre at 100kph on dusk. it was a " bring me my brown pants" moment! I managed to hold it up until about 10-15 kph until I ran off the road. The end of a shitty day's ride for me, having already busted my radiator in a low side slide on the APC 4 day. Luckily I didn't land on my busted foot the second time.

I feel your terror!

Some pics with the E-10 Dakar ...










With 2500 km done ... (85% onroad)










They are @ 50% used, on the middle and also on the sides
I'm happy with them, they are very good on all terrains,
and they drift on wet roads, like all the tires !


I'll buy asap a set of E-07 Dakar, I just hope they'll be ok for the next 8000 km, It's the time for holydays,
Germany and then French Pyrenees + some rides the sundays between the trips ...

You are aware this is the Australian vendors thread?

Cheers, badmanners.

My mechanic can get the whole range (that is brought into Oz) without any trouble at all.

Best storage practice - Store upright or flat?

I have been swapping my E07's with E10's lately for various trips, and along the way, have bought another set of E07's as replacements in anticipation of my current ones being just about flogged.

I am aware of age issues for tyres (UV light / ozone /etc), causing such things as sidewall cracking, but I don't expect to be hassled by that, as it is unlikely that I won't wear them out long before any of those issues arise,
... but, ... in the meantime, what is the best way to store the unused ones; lying flat, or standing on their tread?

I assume if lying flat, it is not a good idea to compress them by weight of other tyres on top?

Does it matter in either case?

Any additional feedback of the E10, particularly the Dakar? The E09 Dakar i had on the DR cracked on the center knobs with still a lot of tread left and the Karoo I put on the back (800XC) is vanishing quicker than I ever wanted :(

Can't comment on the E10 Dakar but the standard E10 and the Karoo are the two worst wearing tyres I have had on the rear of my 1150.
The E09 Dakar is my tyre of choice now. Haven't had any problems at all.
