He rode a GSA in the Iron Butt Rally in 2011 using Anakee 2s.

His comments:
well they get great mileage on the pavement for that guy.
geez i think he went straight down the hiway the whole time.

he should just get a pure street tire next time.
just use pilot roads or even marathons and stop with the image of riding with ADV tires that looks like you could go off-road.

would love to hear more from those who ride this tire off-road and how these tires corner when pushed in the dirt.

anyone can put on a new tire and say they work great on the pavement.
seems people see these tires and think wow what a great street tire.
maybe that was Michelin's plan the whole time.
