I just received a set from ChapMoto. I'll get them mounted next week and post my impressions.

Anakee Adventure Tires

Just got mine ( front & rear ) from the UK delivered in less than 3 days to SoCa for $315 total. Will put them on just before an Alaska trip in late May. Hoping to run the whole trip on one set of tires. In the past got 18K miles on Dunlop multi-compound tires on my Harley. It'll be nice if I don't have to look for tires in Canada or Alaska.

I need a new set of tires now and look to hear feed back on these before I buy. Until these came out I was looking at the Dunlop Trail Smart tires but will hold off a little longer until there is good feedback on these new Adventure Tires.

I got the Michelin Anakee Adventure tires mounted this morning and did a short 20 mile toodle. My first impression is that they are going to be a great fit for my riding style. There is a slight more noise than the OEM Anakee III's, but it's not bothersome.

They turn in pretty quickly and there is no tire whine at any speed that I heard. After a few hundred miles and some off road time, I'll post an update.

UPDATE: After a spirited 150 ride through mountains around Ojai, CA. I can report that these are my new favorite tires. They have great grip, are pretty quiet and handle mild off road situations with ease. I'll still be using my 50/50 tires when I need to really get into the gnarly stuff.

That tread design looks a lot more effective than the previous ones that came on my gs. Those anakee were really irritating from a noise point and handling were not what i was used to the the tourance. I changed to the tourance recently long before the anakee were gone. Just couldn't get used to them.

Are you referring to Anakee Wilds? These new Anakee Adventures are almost as quiet as the Anakee IIIs and much more capable in mild to medium off road situations.

These are almost a clone of the Tourance in appearance.

Ankee Adventure

I'm waiting to see how the handling and mileage goes with these new tires go. As I see it, there's more to a tire than the thread design. On my Harley I went from a OEM Dunlop to the new dual compound with harder rubber down the center and softer on the sides. I went from 8K miles to 18K miles from a tire that didn't cost anymore and cornered better. These new Ankee Adventure tire have silica enhanced compound for wet weather and two Michelin-patented technologies: MICHELIN® Dual Compound 2CT and MICHELIN® Dual Compound 2CT+. I hope to get a lot more mileage for long distance non spirited touring. While I'm not a canyon carver, I'm sure those who are will comment on this tires performance. It's one thing doing an oil change somewhere in Canada or Alaska, I don't want to look for tires too.
