O.K.
I just read this whole thread and spent the last 10min trying to find a place to purchase a E-07 in the states.
Nothing.
We've got an elusive guy, seemingly toying with the ADV inmates.
Bill trying (amazing patience BTW) to help him.
WTF
Do you want to sell us tires or not!!
Sheesh, maybe it's a "new" way to market stuff?? Piss off and confuse the customer?!!?!?!?


I'll check back in, after the K60 I just ordered wears out.
Cheers,
S.

Ok....Mitas Man. I'll match that Chinese price + $10 (US) for either version (E07, E09, E10) and post a thorough test right here in this thread for the whole world to see. But you do have to actually produce them and ship them to me.

Cutting and pasting the photos onto my existing used tires has not gained me any useful life.

You do make tires, no?

what is happening with the E07 tread design?
older tires show a nice wear bar at the end of life, thus wearing alot longer.
New tires do not have this.

Is this in certain sizes (130-17" has it and 140/150-17' do not) or on all new E07?

I just put a 140/80/17 E09 Dakar rear on my 800gs, replacing a kenda big block that only lasted 2000 miles. I ordered it from midasmx.com, and is arrived pretty quickly and I got several confirmation/shipping emails. Overall, I thought the transaction was pretty smooth, but I DO have a few concerns:

1st, I have a VERY VERY hard time doing business with a company with no phone number. I challenge any of you to find one on the website, it isnt there. That alone may keep me from ordering another tire from there.

2nd, the tire was 3 years old. week 33 of 08 build date. makes me nervous.

finaly, please, please make (and advertise on the web) an e09 in 150/70/17. I feel better running the proper size.



I've read that people have had good luck with this tire, and I feel like the $120 price point is just right for a tire that will hopefully give me 2000+ miles of off road performance on my F800, we'll see how it progresses, I'll keep everyone updated.

We, Mr. Ed's Moto replied(PM) to Mitas about 2 weeks ago with answers to all his questions regarding dealers.
What dealers need in the way of inventory, dealer support, advertising and priceing.
So far NO REPLY.
Must be a soft sell.
We get good support from Michelin, Avon, Dunlop, Pirreli, Shinko, Mefo, Etc.
Maybe Mitas just does not have the volume to support sales in the USA.

I won't be buying one of these tires any time soon if ever, when the vender starts a thread, and then doesn't respond to questions.

...

its one week ago that I wrote you that I come back to you.

Its better to give you a complete answer instead of spreading wrong things.
Please be (stay) patient and be so kind to keep our conversation on the official
channels.

I contacted Mitas Tire North America about getting the E-07s in the US. Here was the reply:

"I sorry to say but we do not bring that tire into the United States due to DOT restrictions. If there is anything else I can help you with feel free to send me an email."

So, unless Mitas can shed some light on this and get it fixed, we won't be getting them anytime soon.
