Nice.  Mitas tyres can be a bit of a mare to fit, especially the Dakar versions with thicker sidewalls.  Mate of mine just has E07s fitted to his GS and it took over two hours trying to do it without scratching his fancy black rims.

I tried fitting a pair of E07 Dakars on the Africa Twin. Even more of a nightmare than the E09s!
