Went ahead and bought the Mofo explorer tires, hope to give feed back in a few weeks as that will be the first thing I do after April 15th.

I have put a set on with tubliss inserts. I balanced them with the set screw on wheel weight (4-1oz/wheel). Just finished 2k miles I them including 1600 miles in Mexico. They were flawless. Used them on and off pavement. I ended up adding RideOn sealant after experiencing slow leaks after install. They now hold air and with the balancing the mirrors actually are useable at 70mph!
I am currently set up in adventure riding mode. I'll be trying to wear these out by summer when I get back into 90/10 dirt riding mode for Colorado this summer. I think I'll try a MT43 on the rear then, not sure about the front.
The Mefo Explorers are definitely a worthwhile choice for a 50/50 set up!

Thanks for the excellent report Oddfellow.  I have had a pair of Tubliss and the Explorers waiting to go on for at least 3 weeks.  Just had my first weekend off after a solid month of working 6-10 ( redbull is your friend).  Definitely like the MT-43 on my 300 for the gnarly offroad stuff.  The rigid sidewalls on them help them remain stable for those of us who like to banzaii the corners on pavement transitions.

The 2,400 mile update on the Mefos is that they are wearing well and I estimate that they will be done at 4,000.  Tubliss on the rear sealed totally after a couple of weeks from the initial tiny leak of about 1-2 lbs overnight.

OK this is the latest update on the Mefo Super Explorers:  They are a most excellent tire if your primary application is pavement, gravel, and light sand.  They are most excellent on black top with amazing grip on extreme lean angles.
