I had Mitas E-09 and enjoyed them, but they wear really fast on pavement at my normal 130kph. If you're going to stick with gravel, you'd likely get excellent life out of them. I note that you're having trouble finding sizes, so you may already have evaluated Mitas / Mx1Canada, in which case you might just want to grab a DRZ or KLR. :) Either way, best of luck!

Thanks. I hope you have no problems finding shoes that fit your feet, 'cause by your logic... (shudder)

I've found tires that should work for my needs, just not in Canada! So I'll have to spend my $ with a US dealer. So be it.

Just made a tire purchase from Canada's Motorcycle, when I went to check out they knocked $10 off for buying more than one tire.

Pete's seem to have the cheapest price on the d908rr whether stateside or in Canada. A mile from the border and haven't bought a tire in Canada a few years now.

I would think with the dollar on the decline I should grab a few before they rise in price a bit.

Hard to beat that tire for those that actually get dirty with the big bikes.

Good wear and good traction offroad.
