I've just had Bridgestone Adventure A41s fitted.

I read some reviews, and they appeared to be well liked.

Careful!  Saying anything disparaging about Michelin Pilots around here is a misdemeanor.   :192: :008:

I’ve just returned from a week trip to the Swiss Alps. We had 2 very wet rides on mountain roads and the Anakee 3s handled it without any issues.

Had one moment when the rear span up as I went over a cattle grid on a steep incline but these things are like ice when wet.

 Over 6000 miles in just over two months and theres loads of life left in them, they’ve quietened down a lot too.

For a mostly road tyre (on crappy back roads and dirt roads with the odd highway haul) I have one set of wheels with a Karoo 3 front/Karoo Street Rear (in a 170)

For mostly dirt I have a set of wheels with a Anakee Wild front/Mitas E09 rear. For when I go play with my mates on their KTM 1190R Adventures.

For a casual summer trail ride (tracks are pretty dusty, loose rock etc) I just leave the Karoo 3 on the front and swap the rear to the Mitas E09.


Best thing I ever did, buying the extra set of wheels. I can see myself getting another rear wheel. I do all my tyre changes by hand. It's handy to be able to spoon a tyre onto a rim, ready for action, and then when the weekend comes just grab the rattle gun and swap rears. I can do front and rear in 3  1/2 minutes now. Plenty of practice.

METZELER KAROO STREET. :047: :152:

Great both in on and (light)off road. Much better grip than the original Tourances, which were quite good already. Although I have a bit of an agresive riding stile, it doesn't last as long as the Tourances... My rear tyre will last for 1.00Km more and will replace it by another karoo, for sure. :305:
