Michelin Anakee 3 Tires The replacement for the crowd favorite Anakee 2 tires has arrived! Michelin has vastly improved the Anakee in many ways including wear, feedback and wet weather performance. The Michelin Anakee 3 Tires are a further blend of long tread life, balance and rugged adventure. Features Performance that lasts mile after mile with a new silica tread compound yields even more mileage compared to MICHELIN Anakee 2 tires Innovative tread pattern inhibits irregular wear patterns, while evacuating water, dirt and mud Transverse grooves efficiently evacuate water for dependable wet-weather grip Beveled lateral grooves help shed mud and gravel when riding off-road Enhanced ride qualities and tire architecture engineered for easy maneuverability and precise handling Amazing stability and rider feedback, thanks to a new high-rigidity casing Indented tread grooves help to provide consistent lateral grip even as the tire wears Excellent wet traction and an innovative silica tread compounds offer the best balance between grip and durability Distinctive tread pattern pulls water away from the contact patch Note Anakee 3 tires are Bias Ply unless otherwise noted (e.g. 110/80R19 59H is a Radial Tire). TT indicates Tube Type Tire.

I put these on my 1200 GSA with dynabeads (I rarely go faster than 100 mph) for a Route 66 trip. The first 7,000 miles were heavily laden with gear and a even a passenger at times. I push the limits from time to time, enough that I should get some new pegs before I don't have anywhere to put my feet, and have only had a few instances where the tires broke free slightly under hard acceleration. I blame those times on me not the tires. I've noticed that you can get more mileage from a tire if you spend some time riding on the sides. That, and they cost a lot of money so you may as well use the whole darn thing. Front and back wore in very well together. I have just recently installed my next set and have confidence that I will get at least 10,000 miles out of this set, maybe more if I can hold off the throttle.
