Howdy from Idaho.  Just letting anyone interested know that I now have about 500 miles on a 120/80 Motoz Extreme Hybrid rear on a 90/90 Mitas E09 Dakar front.
My conclusion so far is that they are both fantastic.  For a nearly knobby tire, the Motoz does quite well on the street (its DOT) especially cornering.  I commute 30 minutes each way on pavement almost daily, then ride in the desert or mountains on the weekends.  The lugs on the Motoz are not wearing down hardly at all, and when I get in the loose stuff off-road I have more confidence than I've ever had.  This tire is like a 90/10 or 80/20 offroad/on road, but it's handling that role extremely well.  I run this with a tube, at about 22PSI until I get off road, then drop it down to about 15PSI.  The Mitas E09 front is a darn heavy duty tire with a higher load and pressure rating meant for bigger dual sport bikes.  It still looks new after 500 miles of mostly pavement.  I'm happy with it on and off road for the way I ride- it's not a motocross tire, but as a trail tire d/s tire it's great so far.  

Even though these tires are still 95% perfect, I'm getting a set of Shinko's to try out soon (I work with the distributor).  I will try out the Shinko's and compare them.  The Motoz/Mitas setup is my aggressive 80/20 DOT setup.  The Shinko's will also be an aggressive 90/10, 80/20 setup.  I'll report back when I have about 500 miles on them.
