Had a very quick look, does it say they are dual compound? always likes the Metzeler's
I saw the new liquid cooled GS1200 in France last October and it had the Anakee 3 fitted
so if they are both good enough for the GS they are ditto for out CT'S

actually i was looking at these at the bike show recently as they are made for the new GS. My tyre supplier was at the show too and all the new Tourance as well for sale. It is obviously more expensive but as im old school ill stick with what I know  :305:

Used to really like the Bridgestone 020 on my GS but when stocks got low after it being superseded the prices went really high and I moved on to newer rubber.

Never had the Tourances but like yourself there are plenty who rate them  :028:
