The MEFO rides well on and off road. It wears faster but I prefer the Mefo for more dirt oriented riding. I call this a 40% street/60% dirt tire

My favorite rear off-road tire is the D908rr but I can't afford to put one on every 2000 miles.
Can I ask, how many miles on that Mefo in the picture? Looks a bit chewed up...I recall some older posts about the lugs ripping right off, although I thought that was just a bad batch. Thanks.

I used Mitas E09 only for 2000km and hated it!
In the dirt, the grip in the front of the bike, in reduze
I use now a Mitas C17

Thanks, good info. From the other opinions I've found, you're not the only one who prefers the Heidenau for the street and the Mefo (or Mitas E-07) for the dirt.

I pulled my once-fancy orange Stealth rear sprocket off my 990.
I think I got my money's worth






Oh...and I cleaned Punkin, too
Or....maybe just "knocked some mud off" is a better choice of words

I had some time on my hands and some metal laying around so I figured I'd make my own rear brake master cylinder guard. The TT guard was used as a reference.
