Comments about Michelin Anakee 2 Motorcycle Tire:
Third set of Anakees on my 1000 Vstrom but the first Anakee 2s. Previous Anakees tend to cup the front tire if pressures aren't carried significantly higher than Suzuki recommendation. Hopefully, the Anakee 2s will do better.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best Tire I have found for BMW R1200GS
from Southern CA
See all my reviews
I have tried a few similar tread patterns on a BMW R1200GS. So far these are the ones for me. They definitely held better than the Tourances .The wear factor is a little better than most others in this class. The hold the road better than others that I have tried.
Great all-around tire

It would be hard to switch to another tire right now. I purchased my first set of Anakee 2's from the local dealer after my OEM Trailwings were toast on my DL1000. I installed the tires back in June '11, put almost 9k miles on them, and still have enough tread for another 1k-2k miles. I've rode mostly everything: downpours, trails, singletrack, mountain passes, water crossings, and daily to/from work on the Interstate. These handled everything I threw at it. Enough grip to scrape pegs in corners and durable enough to take up the rocky mountain passes without airing down. Breaks through the water on the road with ease and enough traction in dirt/gravel to ride with confidence.After the center starts to wear down, the tires do make noise in turns from the tread gap but nothing bothersome.Endstate: These are absolutely great DS tires for on and off the road at a reasonable price.
Michelin Anakee 2
Excellent tire! I noticed improved handling over the Dunlop F24 that came stock on my 2002 Honda VT750DC. I would definately recommend this tire. The customer service at Bikebandit.com can't be beat! They are my 1st choice for all my bike needs. Thanks Bikebandit.com!
