Mitas E07 Enduro thoughts

Hello,
I have purchased a set of Mitas E07 Enduro 50/50 tires for my 2012 V strom.
After nearly 2000 miles on them in all kinds of normal weather conditions, I can say that I love this tire. I just finished 1300 mile trip (TWAT) with 650 miles being grave, sand, dirt, mud, water, wet pavement and dry fresh black top. The tire holds onto about anything. For off pavement I had it at 29 PSI and for long haul back home via highway at 33.
Wet conditions-
The tire felt funny at first (new) it took some getting used to, but now it stick pretty good even at higher angle of lean. I would say it acts just as good as 80/20 Trailwing.
Mud -
It slips some, but it doesn't slip like the OEM and it rips through mud holes quite well as long as you control the heavy pig bike.
Sand -
It's not as good as true off road tires, but it has enough grip to push you out without too much issues. If you have travelled TWAT, you know that their sand traps are filled deep, fine sand.
Gravel-
You can lead quite well on them and as long as you control the bike, they hold onto the gravel quite well.
Now after 2000 miles and 700 of them at over 85MPH on highway the wear is still very minimum. The rear shows some, but the front is as it came from the box yesterday. I'm thinking they are like 8K-10K miles tires.
I hope this helps anyone looking for new tires,

I just put a set of E-07 Dakars on after riding about 2000 miles on the OEM Trail Wings. Mostly road miles so far. They are a bit more jittery than the OEM tires at speed and noticeably louder, but nothing major on either score. Good road handling so far and significantly better on the little bit of dirt that I've tested them on. As a side note, I added an Adventure Tech fork brace after installing these tires and that seems to have eliminated the jitteriness (is that a word?) that I noticed.
