I never bought another set of Michelins because of that trip, and I replaced that set earlier than I needed. I had been thinking about purchasing a set of Anakee II tires, but I think I'll look elsewhere. Oh, I do not like the look of that Anakee III too street oriented. I have been using TKC 80s for a long time on the F650. Now I have a F800gs and need to find something that last longer.
Good combination for performance and wear is a TKC80 front and a Heidenau K60 rear.
