Anybody tried an Anakee 3

Just ordered a Anakee 3 front for my GS 800, has anybody had any experience with these tires?

I had an Anakee 2 on my 990 and was impressed, the Scorpion that I'm taking off is great on tar but not that good on gravel.

Thanks - I am doing a trip with 80% off road riding, and have a K60 on the back, if its better than the Anakee 2 then it will be much better than the scorpion trail that I have on at the moment.

After 11,000 miles, it's time to replace my front Tourance EXP. Any updates on the Anakee III? Or the new Tourance NEXT? Rode for days on trails with TKC80s and lots of pavement too. They were great tires but don't last very long.



I do mostly long distance touring and really like the EXPs.

Yup i have. did about 8000km on one, including a trip to the nordcape, it is toast.
Its quite a nice road tire, even in the rain, its terrible for anything rougher than some gravel ( and its not great at that either). Basically can't displace gravel for shit, and it can't dig in either.

Since its a Michelin it has a weak carcass and thus when i wasn't looking out for tire pressures it pretty much squared off in 4 or 5 400 km days.

I am running them on my GSA (my first set of them). Road some Colorado roads in the rain last week. They stick well and so far have not shown signs of squaring off. 6000 miles on them so far. I am a long distance rider, so 95% highway riding, and generally look for 10k out of a set of tires. Oh, and I am running slightly higher psi - 42 front 45 rear.

When I had my Tiger 800 (road) it came with Scorpion Trails. When those wore out, I switched to Anakee II's and I liked them better... longer life and I felt they were better in wet conditions.

With my F800GS, I have gone through two sets of TKC80's and because I'm doing a lot more road than off-road, I've just switched to Anakee 3's. I've only got maybe 250km on them so far, but they're much nicer on the road than the TKC80's. (Not surprising.) The front was a real bitch to install though and I've never had such a hard time putting on a tire. Next time I'll probably have someone else do it.

No experience on gravel with the new tires yet, but this weekend I'm planning on testing them out. With the kind of riding I was doing, the TKC80 rear only lasted me about 4,000 km before I felt it wasn't holding well and I'm sure the Anakees will last a lot longer. I'm not going to be doing any mud or water crossings with these tires but I hope they'll be good enough on gravel.

I love my anakee 3s. I have pushed them in mud, sand, wet pavement, dirt, gravel. Impressed me in all. In the mud they of course are more road oriented butclean themselves out of the mud once your out of the mud. Gravel on bigger and small they seemed to grip about as ood as your going to grip on gravel. Dirt like on the video below was like riding on asphault grip wise.

Just put one on the front. It holds air, grips the road, and it's black.
Don't need much more than that.
