Anakee,s 111
« on: March 24, 2019, 09:46:45 PM »
My crosser had Bridgestone's fitted from new but I have only got five and a half thousand out of a front and back, I have always got two rears to one front ,I don't know what went wrong ,Any way decided to try Anakee 111's,So far I am pleased with the handling,But not had a rainy day yet but I noticed the handling of the bike is a lot lighter. Cheers Owen.

I’d agreee with that entirely, steering seemed lighter to me also when I went for the Original Pirelli’s, I’ve had 3 or 4 pairs of Anakee3s now, never had any issue and good life too. Can be noisy at constant motorway speeds though.

Anakee's are all known to 'howl' at a certain frequency.  Michelin makes good stuff overall.

Hi Owen. I am on my 3rd set at 95 klos  and all box’s you
can achieve 10.000 miles on the front and the rear is only halfed used it ‘s a great tyres for the right balance between grip in the dry  and in the wet and handling for me it’s a very safe tyre that gives me confidence in the way that I ride they should with luck last all this year.

I almost rode 13000miles on the Anakee III and am very very pleased they are now worn so I can go back to the Bridgestone's. Dont know which Bridgestone's you've had mounted but the A40 / A41 are on all specifications prior to the Michelin, except durability, but I managed to ride ~10k on the A40. Especially in rain the Michelin perform not that good, and that is when you need your tyres the most, dont you?

The noise DEMBONES mentions is the most annoying part, above 60m/h it sounds like a big truck  :151:

I got on with my sets of AnakeeIII's fine, 2:1 rear/front sounds right. Never noticed the noise.

Dunlop Roadsmart3 and Michelin Trail5's were a step up in grip though and not much difference in mileage out them... :020: :305:

Personally I hate the deathwings the CT comes on as standard

My GS came on Anakee IIIs and I found them to be great tires in the dry and wet, quite long lasting too

Some folks don’t like them because they are noisy but that never bothered me in the slightest, I’ve had various tires on various bikes that have also been noisy

Currently running Conti Road Attack 3s on the GS and they are excellent

I always replace tyres 1 for 1 because I wear fronts out as quick as the rear

Only done about 200 miles on the Anakee's but I have to say I'm very impressed. And yes they can howl at a certain speed but no big deal. :152:
