DirtyPixel from the looks of your IG posts the Mission tires have been doing just fine in all sorts of places! I am happy to report that at least in my tire sizes 90/90/21" and 150/17", I am well north of 4,000 miles on this set, and there is quite a bit of tread left, I have normally been running shinkos and the 805 or 705 rear tires would give me around 5,000 before the tread was useless, so if these can hold out for 6...7k with usable tread that would be pretty cool.

Yes! I've only put a little over 1k on them and they look new. On road, they are surprisingly quiet and grippy. They hold their own in dirt and climbing rocks. They tractor through mud and light sand just fine. I haven't done gravel yet, but I'm not expecting any problems.

Unfortunately, I did dump the bike 3 times in deeper sand, twice fully loaded with camp gear and once unloaded. I mean, I don't think anyone expected these to do deep sand as a 50/50 anyways, but overall, I'm pretty happy with them!

Progress report, I am near 4,500 miles on these puppies... They have done the ADV Rally, and quite a few epic dirt, and an epic: they-said-it-would-be-dirt-and-it-was-sand day, as well as being my general go anywhere tires because my bike is my daily. @DirtyPixel probably has a better handle on how they are in deep sand, personally I am a dumpster fire in deep sand so I have no way of telling if the tires are helping 🤠

Now for the Update pictures:

Lots of meat left! I usually run Shinkos which would be about ready to come off by now.

Over 7,000 MILES on these puppies now. Which have been coming on slow lately with all the crap going on. But the tires are still being awesome, hard edges have smoothed, some of the gaps have closed, but still confidence inspiring off road for being a 50/50 tire.

Welp... 5k miles with zero complaints but picked up a nail in the rear right after I met the local Motoz dealer (hmmmmm ) so I retired them early.

I will do a complete review soon but suffice it to say I’m glad I had the chance to try these tires.

I’d worked with Dunlop a bit ahead of their launch and I’d heard good things about them.

I saw Justin Mackie completely rail his Africa Twin last year in Montana and Idaho so I saw them put through the paces.

For me, I’d never really wanted a 50/50 tire but this type of adventure touring is better suited for it.

They’re a dream on the pavement and not bad at all in the dirt. Most of the dirt I’ve done here though is pretty tame but that’s a perfect task for a 50/50 tire. I’m probably not going to ride these at a High Sierra or Mojave but this type of riding they’re perfect.

Seems a shame to retire them huh? I’m stunned they look so good with 5,000 miles on them. My guess is they could have gone 9-10k.

In case anyone is interested, attached are pix of my Dunlop Trailmax Mission tires at 13k miles on a Super Tenere T12. I plan on keeping the front on, and changing out the rear, although I could certainly ride the rear for a while longer on-road but I have some offroad planned in September.

I have found these tires to  be excellent, but I have very limited experience to compare them to. The previous tires on this bike were Anakee street tires. Ive never ridden knobbies, so this tire is my entire universe, but it certainly delivers on mileage
