My biggest problem w/rear tire wear is how much I rely on downshifting and engine braking. It's a habit that I just cannot overcome. People who have followed me have asked if my brake light was malfunctioning.

I am running Mitas E-07s. Very happy with the rear, feel like I gave something up on the front compared to a TKC. I think for my standard running i will go with a TKC front and a Mita E07 on the rear unless I am going on a long mostly paved trip.

when you need a new rear tire, is shipping cheaper we ordered them together? Your not that far away from my summer home

I love how my Shinko's work in the stones, but 2500 miles per rear tire ain't going to cut it.

Hey what about me, I'm a half decent (lucky) rider too.... Haha



I just run whatever tyres my mommy buys me....

I am prolly harder on tyres than anybody can imagine, I like having fun way too much to worry about tyre wear.
I just replace them when they stop holding air (usually)




but I have been know to like the heidenau K-60 for price verses wear issue but I tend to get in the dirt a good bit.





my bike (R1200GS) calls for the 150/70-17 (note the center tread, not good for mud)



but I run the 140/80-17, cause they don't have the center strip for the first 1000 mile or so




If price verses wear were not an issue I would go for the TKC 80 hands down for street and dirt... hell i think dennis even ran the TKC80's on the track on his 1200GS. but I only get about 3000 miles out of the TKC, maybe a month if I'm lucky (but usually only a few weeks). I can usually get about 6k outa a K-60 but it is spent when I take it off.. these are all for the rear tire wear. I can usually get two rear tire to one front tire with eighter TKC o K-60

but don't take any advice from me, what ever you do...

When you start thinking about ordering another one, PM me and I will decide. Hopefully its summer when your ready so I am already up your way, I will give you cash before ordering. I was thinking of running the Shinko 700 on the front.

How many miles you think your getting out of the E07?

My rear has over 10K on it now. I put it on a long time before the front. Prob only a cple thousand on the front. I have been holding off ordering in hopes of a usa distributor....mx1 was out of them, but it looks like they are back in stock now.
