Two BMW clubs?
I don't know if I can take that level of excitement...

My K60 Scout has about 7000 klm on it, would recommend them. This one is for sale when my E07 turns up (note may get a bit more wear on depending on how long it takes for new tire to turn up !)

I want to try that on the rear of my 1150 next time, to help use up the TKC80 front I have sitting around. I've heard good things about it. I hope Cycletreads can get these in.

these blokes are the importers and will sell direct to the public. I have an E07 front at the moment. great tire have done about 9K on it and will still get a WOF on it. OK on gravel but stink on mud/clay.

Mitas may just be looking at a different import/distribution chain soon.

But you didn't hear that from me

Interesting also that last time I bought a Mitas it was cheaper to buy from a bike dealer (Motorad) than from the importer. He is obviously conscious of not undercutting his retailers - to the point of losing business

I had a set of those on my 1100GS recently. Did an almost 7000Km ride and could hardly see the wear on the back one; a great tyre for the big chookies. Unfortunately the front one had a slow leak which I didn`t notice and the bead separated from the rim causing instant deflation. Result, broken leg for me and one written off 1100GS. TKC80 front, E07 rear would be a good combo.

yikes! that sounds nasty.... a good reason to run tubed rims. I like the E07 front as an alrounder except for when its greasy....like yesterday....gives ya the willies, especially when its a little bald

Ouch, while I am glad it didn't turn out worse, I know all about broken legs. Seven years late I still have a daily reminder.
