I bought a set of these tires prior to a 3000 mile trip. The grip and handling are good but especially the rear tire is loud. It sings to me under way. I wear hearing protection, but can still hear the noise. I will wear these tires out, but look forward to quiet replacements!
I'm replacing my old Anakee 3 with a new one. It makes a great sport touring tire; sticks to asphalt incredibly well for an "on road/off road" tire. (I can't comment on its off road performance.) And it's the first tire I've had in a while that gives me over 10,000 mile life on my V-Strom.
I took an R1200GSA shod with Anakee 3’s into sand dunes. It was not my bike and the first time I had ridden it. I was pleasantly surprised. A short clip of me riding it in the dunes and showing the tyres after:
I took my 2012 Vstrom 650 to Cold foot Alaska 10,000 miles round trip
and made the whole adventure on one set of tires thru some of the wrost roads I have ever driven on.The Michelin Anakee 3 Tire was perfect for dirt and gravel and I hit a lot of it on this trip.and some gravel freshly laid on road construction projects that a BMW 1200GS ridder said "was like ridding on marbles" I had to agree since I almost laid my bike down on that section of road and I have over 100,000 miles under my belt. I will be ordering a new set soon. Thanks for such an awesome product!
I was pleasantly surprised at how well these grip on dirt and gravel. I ride 50/50 on my KLR and love these tires. Admittedly the 50% dirt portion is county country roads, if it were single track, or involved mud, this isn't the right tire. Wet pavement performance is exceptional.
Used these on 650 V Strom 2012. Liked them a lot. A friend also has same bike liked Metslers. Tried them. Back tire wore 4000 miles didn't track well least favourite tire so far I've had three sets just went back to anakee's and love them. Much better performance and go 11,000 miles love these tires on this bike.

Question asked by Greg
Question:Q: Are these both Radial or both Bias Ply?Question asked 1 year 11 months agoI've been looking at these tires and noticed that on other sites (that sell these separately), the front and rear tires are two different types (radial or bias ply) and I've heard that it's not a good idea to mix types unless the bike manufacture says it's ok. I may have missed it, but are these tire both Radial or both Bias Ply or one of each? Thanks for the help
Question answered by robertUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered 1 year 11 months agoAnswer: A: It is dependent on the size chosen.
All rear sizes are bias ply.
