I recently installed a set of Pirelli Rally STRs on my 2015 GS. Replaced Anakee IIIs. What a difference in gravel, especially with a grade. Riding up my 3/10 mile driveway (gravel, 15% grade, hairpin turns) with the Anakees was a challenge and I would not dare try it two up, the way the bike slipped and skittered up hill. With the STRs, the bike just keeps going - no slip at all, even two up. I've read the comments about the STRs being noisy on the highway. They do hum, but at least they don't howl like the Anakees did in the turns. Can't comment on the tread life, but so far I love the STRs. Perfect for my Blue Ridge MTN riding, including all the gravel roads. And Revzilla currently has them 50% off...
