Now that is some good news. Looks like I'll be ordering come January. I'm going to finally do an off road course to learn more about the big pig's capabilities, and knobbies will be required for the spring.

There's just something right about a picture of a GS with knobbies on it.

Thanks for the input blaster!

  • $300 - 399.99 = $55-$65
  • $400 - 499.99 = $65-$75
  • $500 - 599.99 = $75-$100

1 tire and you are looking at ~$45 Shipping to the US.

has any one tried the 140/80/17 on the 1200GS adv?
I have the tire trying to make room fix truck to get bike into garage.

Yes, but if I buy a pair for $220 ($90 for the front and $130 for the rear), that's $55 in shipping. $275 total, which is still cheaper than buying TKC's or K60's in the States.

Yes, I have. They work great, leaning on the street a bit far will give you slidy results and engage traction control, but dirt action is awesome.

Two of us from Colorado are riding the TCAT next summer. Does anyone know if Mitas are available in St John Newfoundland? I am thinking of using the E09 Dakar tires on my DR650 with an 18" rear wheel. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! It would be wonderful to do the entire 15k of the TCAT on one set of tires!

Single source tire, from mx1canada, I highly doubt there would be stock anywhere else.

Join up on ridetherock, lots of good folks who'd be willing to accept a drop shipment from mx1canada, which also means free shipping.

No, no one Here on the island stocks this tire, but I am in Eastport (300kms from SJ), NL and Have a new unused 18" Mitas E09Dakar that I had for my XRR ( I sold it this past summer ) hanging in my garage. If you're stuck you can have it (just reimburse the cost of the tire ) as I don't need it anymore and I have a tire changer here as well to help you mount it, if our schedules line up...
I also have 3 E09Dakars rears in 17" hanging beside them!

Also, If I haven't already mentioned, I ran the Dakars on the F8GS for a season or so and the wear was fantastic. 8500kms on the rear and it's about half worn. IIRC they came with 13.5mm lug and I was down to 7-8mm when I sold the F8. On the rear of the F8 there isn't a better tire but up front this tire is scary at speeds over 120kph, gets real squirrelly so I recommend running a different front tire like others have mentioned. Maybe a TKC80 up front and E09D out back would be the ideal combo, IMHO. Still for the price, you can't beat the Mitas...

This tire seems very interesting to me and would definately be on my list of tires to try on my project RT/GS conversion bike.

My question would be, is there any issue with a DOT certification on this tire?

I am sure it is street legal in Canada and I am sure it would be legal to use in the US on an individual basis, like a person riding their bike from Canada to the US. But what would be any issue with a shop or a company importing 10 or 20 of these and selling them here?

My guess would be, to sell them here in the US there may have to be some testing and certification from the USDOT or other micromanagement department.

Is that possible though, for say a local BMW dealer to order a stock of those tires and sell them to the general public?

Shipping isn't so bad, $55 to my Michigan door. I have a place I can have them sent to across the border that I can get when I am over there, but I have to pay something like $25 HST, it's 13%. so really I am hoping that they sell them in the US, but not in MI so I can save my 6% tax, and free shipping :) soon! I have found kenda big blocks for $193 shipped for a front and rear and I am going that route very very soon.

Pirelli scorpions are a nice price on the rear for now. Almost went with those on back and big block up front for a cost factor. The pirelli I found is $130 tho.
