thanks. many have looking at that tire's design and reading Michelin saying they are better by 10% in the dirt (than the 2) and thinking

just got a set for my XT600e after the factory Trail Wing set which worn out and started to lose the grip. I am commuting, almost never ride on gravel, 99% tarmac so there isn't much selection in my size.

The new Anakees were in the shop, I gave them a chance :) I am happy with them so far (less than 100kms tho) they are giving really good grip and control on tarmac. The braking power ws a surprise but after a worn-out tyre everything new is magic :)

The wet season is in the corner (southern hemisphere) I am curious about the wet performance.

I am loving mine thus far. I put them them on before a nearly 2000 mile rider over Easter Weekend.

Very grippy in dry and in wet corners (cloudcroft, nm) and very smooth while rolling. They also are holding up very nice too, as it was a very high speed run for those nearly 2000 miles that Friday & Saturday. There is very little wear visible.

Anakee 3's as delivered.


Front compared to a new (old style though) Tourance, and Old Ankee 2 and old Karoo.


Front on the bike after installed.


Rears compared, Karoo, Tourance & Anakee 3


Rear on the bike after installed.


I have only 2500 miles on them now in less than a month of use, but so far so good.

EDIT: I just went to the garage and took these pics so you can see what 2,468 miles looks like on them.

I am trying to get a set of these put on my bike for a trip down to the dragon next month. My shop is telling me he can only find these tires with a bias front and a radial rear.

Does anyone know if there is an issue with this config or if there is a way to order matched biad or radial.

(FYI, I am an idiot when it comes to tires so please don't point out that I don't know what I am talking about. I know this already.)

OK I got the answer.

Apparently they don't make 21" tires in radial. I am sure there is some sort of engineering explanation for this.

Michelin says it is fine to mix a bias front with a radial rear. Just not the other way around.

I am on a F800GS so I need 90/90V-21 front and a 150/70V-17 rear.

That was the way the old (single) BMW F650GS came from the factory.

I just put a 130/80-17 on the back of my '88 GS to replace a Scorpion Trail that was wore out. Have a 90/90-21 Pirelli scorpion on the front. I've only ridden about 50 miles so far, but seem to handle fine. Michelin said mixing radial/bias was ok and their 2013 fitment chart recommends this mix for my bike. One dealer I talked to wasn't sure and didn't think it was a good idea. The dealer I bought from rattled off a list of biles that come form the factory this way and said no problem. Go for it.

Anakee 3

Had mine on for a few weeks! Loved the 2's and that's why I got the 3's. Replaced heidneau k76. They rock! Super sticky so far. Good in rain and was hovering around 0c the other day. No issues. Riding down to San Diego in two weeks. That will be the real test. Give you guys a heads up on how they perform. So far so good.

Anyone else with some real mileage on the anakee 3's yet? I just picked up a new to me 07 Caponord. The beast is heavy and she'll be manly used for commuting, riding two up, touring, and camping. With that said, the Tourances on the bike are the OEM tires that came on the bike I believe. Just hit 10000 miles today! I'm not needing 10000 miles out of the anakee 3's if they provide better performance than the tourances. I love the longevity that tourances have, but I'd rather trade out a bit, for better grip in the corners, and in the dirt. (fire roads, gravel roads, and hard pack dirt.) Thanks in advance guys!

A week from now I should have a good estimate. I am in the Smokey's where only twice in the last 6 years a set of new tires was not bald edge to edge in 10 days.

Copied my post from the S10 Forum.

I just managed to take pictures of my tires. The Anakees shown have 6k on them. We just got back from the MotoGP in Austin by way of NJ, PA, MD, WV, VA, NC, SC, NC, SC, GA, AL, FL, AL, MS, LA, TX, OK, AR, MO, IL, KY, VA, WV, MD, PA, NJ. :)) The bike was loaded heavy for all of the miles ridden. Both panniers, a top box and a dry bag on the passenger seat were all full and definetaly overweight.

Impressions...

On road these tires feel much better than the Anakee 2s. Cornering at high speed in twisties is excellent. We were riding fast enough to feather the edges of the tires and at no point did it feel unstable. On the highway the tires are definitely a nicer ride. Rain performance was also excellent as I got caught in what I would consider "monsoon" weather. I also rode ~70 miles of dirt and gravel roads and they performed with no issues.

The tires look like they have a lot of miles left but only time will tell..

The front tire looks much more worn than the rear.


Rear.

I think I may purchase these for my Capo. From every post of people that have actually ridden on these tires they seem favorable to the anakees 2 and tourances (in the fact that most post perfer anakees over tourances anyway). Only question I've seen that had negative feedback about the tire, is when leaned over in dirt/gravel. Does the bike handle and track well, or does the front end push and plow, and the rear not hook up? I'm mainly going to be on maintained fire roads, and loose gravel roads. Front end plow is really my biggest concern.
