I sent an e-mail to motorace, a distributor in MA that has been carrying Mitas/trellingburg (or however it's spelled) dirt and ice mx tires for quite a while, they said they will be getting some e-07's on their next order also, so we may be getting better here.

I'll
post up a transcript of the emails tonight.

From me to motorace:

I noticed that you carry some models of the Mitas brand tires, do you have any way to get the Mitas E-07 Dakar tires? I'm wanting to run then on my Triumph Explorer, so I would be needing a 150-70-17 and a 110-80-19.
Currently the only way anyone in the States on advrider.com (largest adventure rider website on the net) has been able to get them is through mx1 Canada, which is not ideal, and they have been lax lately getting orders shipped out.

Just figured I would give it a shot


Their response:

Hi

We are expanding our line of Mitas brand tires for 2014.

We are in the process of ordering a container. Can you tell me a little more of the E07 Dakar tires?

Is this a large market in US? The timing is perfect as we plan to submit our order this week. I am not sure of the delivery time.

Are there any other models that you would be interested in that we should take a look at.

Thanks for your interest,

Real Messier

Me:

The Mitas E-07 is a 50/50 street/dirt tire for dual sport/adventure motorcycles, I have some on order with mx1canada, but everyone who's written about them basically says they are the bee's knees when it comes to being a competitor to the heidenau k60, and add you'll read in that thread, we want them here in the States, bad.


Them:

Thanks for feedback. We will definitely put some on our container order.


Me:

As I am someone fairly new to the dual sport/adventure world, I cannot say for certain that it is a huge market, but as the adventure bike market seems to be doing nothing but growing I can only imagine the market is going to get bigger, and every single thread that I read about them has people here in the States racing about them, and asking why we have no distributors here, I would imagine that the market share would be there.


I asked them about posting the emails on here, they said of course, here's the reply:


We are a distributor in the motorcycle business for over 44 years, located in Massachusetts.

Our primary business is selling wholesale to dealers.

FYI – our 2013 catalog can be seen at www.motoracedealer.com and we are working on our 2014 catalog which will include the Mitas tire line.

As an importer for their ice tires for years we have been getting more calls for the Mitas off road and dual sport lines which we will expand into for 2014.



Yes, I will certainly drop you a note when our container arrives.

Thanks for the detailed information,

Real Messier









Hopefully this means we will have an additional dealer here in the states!

I'm thinking about running a set of these up to Alaska this summer. I've read a lot of good things about them. Hopefully, they start showing up soon.

My only concern is all these US distributors are great, but are any of them beneficial to those of us in Alaska, ie ship tires from the Contiguous United States.

cba, there is no need to run a set to come here only to switch to Mitas. You can mount either the E07 or E09 Dakars and run them from anywhere in the Lower 48 to Alaska and back. You might have to change them out when you return home.

that's the plan. I'm planning on mounting a fresh set before I leave and replacing them when I get back. I don't want to have to replace tires mid trip unless absolutely necessary.

In ride reports is a guy who just recently got back from Edmonton, I think, to TDF on a Super Ten. He used two sets of E07 Dakars. Edmonton to San Diego by way of Inuvik and second set was San Diego - TDF - Buenos Aires where he shipped in home. So yeah I think you will make it home on one set.

I am thinking on my KLR an E09 up front with an E07 on the rear similiar to what I used on my 955i Tiger. Just an E09 instead of a TKC 80 up front. The E07 really digs and gives excellent traction.

Sava/Savatech? MC60 front w/ a E07 rear is sounding like a hot combo to me.
That MC60 has some very unique design features.

Is this about the previous recall, or is this something new?
