Well, I did a very long trip last December/January, Northeast Brasil - El Calafate (Argentina) - Back Home again and I have a different opinion: the first 5.000 km the Anakees 2 are great. The best grip ever on the wet and dry pavement. After that I felt the front really unstable. Thought it would be the tire. I checked it and at the first glance all I saw was a perfect tire (for that mileage of course). Then, it got worse
. Looked again (closely this time) and realized the tire was deformed in a very strange way, even though it didn't look like it.
Now I have the Tourance (without the "T") and they handle more mileage big time. But they sure don't have the Anakee's grip. The Anakee's rubber seams to be "softer";
