Well, I have 2/3 of an Anakee left and a new TKC rear. That will eat up the TKC front easily. All depends on whether I get to go to Mexico. Somebody will probably beat me to this one.

$365 to $380 per pair of these via internet order? And I thought $287 for a pair of TKC80s was bad!

Unless these things stick like glue on asphalt, are excellent in mud and gravel and last for 20,000 miles I think I'll pass.

I think I have just enough left on my Anakees to await the "alpha" tire tests to be reported. As far as cost... meh ...trying to save a few bucks on motorcycle tires has turned out to have deleterious total economic results for me... whether on the track or in the dirt...

I have milked the last mile out my front and rear. Really was counting on the Mid-March projected date.

You going to have to go back to the Tourance / TKC combo or be able to wait?

Been running TKC/Anakee2 combo when I haven't been straight TKC. Was thinking about the A3 but...
TXjames posted up a pick of the Anakee3 on my "motorcycle only" fb page and my "dirtier" friends/relations have found it. The comments have not been kind to the Anakee3.

Ehhh... Fuck'em. I might give the A3 a shot anyway.

I HAD preordered a set from Revzilla, back when the projected delivery date was mid Feb. Then I ended up cancelling around Mar 1 when I discovered the new date of mid March and I needed tires now.
I'm still interested in how these perform and hope they're what I want for my spoked set of wheels. The Heidi's are too slippery and TKC wear too fast. Where's the good (65% road biased would be fine) dual sport tires when ya need them?
