Was all ready to order the Mitas but for some reason they are out of stock on several sites. I guess they are very popular. Some folks are suggesting the E-07s over the Dakar version due to the stiffness of the Dakars making it difficult to do tire repairs in the field.
Did some more research and now may go with the Shinko E-804/805s. On various sites they are consistantly getting 5 star reviews from users and are cheaper than the Mitas.
