I'm in the market for a street oriented tire right now and just came across these.

Quick question for those who've ridden them, is the front tire profile the same (or at least FEEL the same) as the Anakee 2s ? I'm always amazed in tire threads how grip and durability is discussed to death and handling characteristics seem to go ignored to some degree. I've tried the 2s ( 19" front) and found the turn in to be relatively quick and progressive say compared to a Tourance or even the Pilot Roads which are more linear in response. This can be a good or bad thing depending on your riding style and preferences, but for sake of comparison where are the 3s at? Specifically compared to 2s or tourances. (in other words saying "they handle great" doesn't tell me a thing about how they handle great)

Any detailed feedback in this regard is greatly appreciated
