Thanks for sharing!
And thanks CompAcc for the video!

BTW, let me ask all of you a question.
Last year, I bought an used V-Strom 650 that came with Pirelli Scorpion Trail tires.
The back tire was perfect, but the front was really worn, so I had to replace it immediately.
Since I got the back good, I put the same on the front.
Now my back tire is getting worn by the center band (we say "getting squared" in Spanish), and I'm thinking about mixing Pirelli on the front and Anakee 3 in the back.
I really like Pirelli's grip on road, but commuting reduces the lifetime of Pirelli's back a lot.

Do you think that this Anakee 3 would be better for commuting?
Of course, I would change the front to Anakee 3 when it's worn too.
I don't really like the idea of mixing tires, but if the front tire has better grip than the back, I think I don't feel unstability or any risk of slipping...

Thanks in advance!
