        I opted for Michellin tyres Anakee 111 for a years riding on one set of
        Tyres I have just completed 9600 miles over the last 12 months I be
         Replacing the tyres be for I go to Pwllheli for a long weekend in September
        15Th odd the front tyre down to last few mil but the back looks they haven't
         Done  9600 miles well pleased the way the tyres proformed in the dry and
         The wet I do ride solo with the boxes as my wife is in a A home for dementia
         Hope this help if others looking for replacement.

    Thanks for the feedback.   I'm searching for a set of tires to replace the originals, and it's really tough to decide from all these good options...   Shinko 705, Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR, Avon Trailriders, etc...     Anakee's keep coming back with high recommendations...   although I had hoped that the next set would look more dirt worthy, for some fire road exploration I've been wanting to do...   but most of those are paved...   

    Can you say how much off road riding you did and if they performed well against a known standard, ie; the Battlewings that are stock on my bike??

    After trying all sorts of tyres and being quite disappointed with tyre life on the CT I tried the Anakee 3's and found the same as you - loads of tyre life

    Never in 40 years on two wheels though have I ever had a front wear out faster than the rear

    Yet the Anakee's give lots of grip and feedback  - wet and dry and whilst the rear will square off quite quickly it still handles well - none of that "wallowing" as you tip over that "hump" when cornering

    Noticeably when you first ride off with them fitted, you think you've got a loose wheel - I actually returned to the tyre fitter after just 1.5 miles thinking something was loose - get over that odd feeling and after 10 miles it's disappeared - maybe the slip compound they use in the moulds - most odd feeling though - happened on both sets

    The only moan I have is that they are a noisy tyre - particularly for pillions - having said that as the tyre starts to wear and bed in, the volume of the road noise start to diminish

    Whilst I haven't been off road with them, I hear that on the easy loose stuff, they can hold their own

    Certainly worth a try - I'm on my second pair

    Hope that helps?

     Hi Bus.
                   All my miles are on the road as I have never done of road so have
    No experience of road even when the front was Sq Ed of it no effect on handing as
    In riding with hands of bars I have still got a bout 6mm left and no sign of the the wear mark if you are after good miles to 10,000 miles and still perform then go for them I am not a hard rider so I like to say I am easy on my tyres I opted this tyres for of road look rather than a more road based tyre over in the UK a pair is £254 pounds I suspect you can find cheaper all the best in your search for your new tyre's. As for battwings they brilliant in the dry but not good in the wet I done 8000 miles over 12 months and they had squared of as well plus I no wish to through another' wet part of the year I did find I was making better lines a round bouts and bends the tyres work well the CT as I use veejays setting on my suspension using Anakee 111 tyres hope that helps

    Hi Firefox,
    I fitted a set of V rated Anakee 3 and set off on a big tour recently. Had them properly balanced too.
    Found them great with very assured cornering and great wet feel. I was monitoring the rear only for wear and was impressed at its roundness as the miles piled on, although all the roads I travelled were twisty.
    At 7000klms ( about 4200 miles ) I felt a wobble in the front when I took my hands off the bars, I assumed I lost a balance weight. So at a bike shop I whipped out the wheel and asked them to check its balance. It came back ok for balance and as we examined the tyre we saw it was "cupped "badly ( his term not mine!). Pressure was checked every few days too. Never noticed tyre noise
    So it seems the front wears out quicker than the back here too

    Interesting comments here on the Anakee 3, I am on my second pair, the first were allready fitted when I purchased my CT, they seemed good so I brougth a new pair and have done only 2,000km at the moment, yes noisy when new but it fades, will come back later after more Kms, but they grip well dry and wet !  la when i was on my police trainging course, only three days old and hardly srcubbed in they stayed with the Yams 1300 on road tyres, the rules are thrown out the window with the Gendarmes  :008: 170kmh on a 90kmh road :005: go for it if you can  :062:
