Anakee Adventure Tire ( new 2019 )

Michelin has came out with the Anakee Adventure for 2019. Itís a 80/20 that sets between the 50/50 Wild and the 90/10 Anakee 3. Something to watch as to how it will pan out. Sizes to fit most GSers. https://motorbikewriter.com/michelin...venture-tyres/

Traded in my 2014 F700GS for the 2018 R1200GS Low Suspension. The R1200GS has just been awesome.

Does this mean they are dropping the A3?

Dropping the price would be better. They'll probably put'm both on the shelf and let sales decide what happens with them.

The Michelin website says the tire will be original equipment on 2019 BMW R1250 GS's, available beginning January 2019. The truck that just delivered three 2019 R1250 GSA's to my dealer had two bikes with the Anakee III's installed (including my bike) and interestingly, the third 2019 GSA had the new Anakee Adventure tires installed.

1946 Indian Chief
2003 Harley Davidson Dyna Glide
2013 K1600 GTL

I'm interested in finding out how noisy these new Adventure version tires are when compared to the 3 or the Wilds. The Wilds are obnoxiously loud - no bother with ear plugs but for any short trip without hearing protection, they're crazy loud.

I've got about 200 miles on my Anakee Adventures now after a nice ride today. It wasn't raining while we rode but the roads were wet for much of the riding time. I have noted there is an audible whine anytime you come off the center of the tire (leaning left or right) in the least little bit. It isn't annoying, but it is noticeable. Grip seems adequate and comparing them to the Pilot Road 4s I had on my Multistrada, I can't see a reason currently to not go back with the Anakee Adventures. I'm still getting accustomed to the GSA but we had a somewhat spirited rides in the North GA Mountains today. I do think in some scenarios I feel a ripple or slight vibration from the tires (air pressures are 36 front and 41 rear I believe). The chicken strips on the rear will give a person a complex...lol. The PR4s I had on the Multi, I'd reach the edge of the rear before reaching the edge of the front.

Does the tread appear to be more or less aggressive than the TKC 70?

It looks like you rode them hard and got some heat into them. I've left a lot of soft compound rubber on the roads of N. Georgia over my life and it's a fun place to do that. Did you get off on any of the unpaved forest roads up there? There's a great loop I did on my GS a year ago called the Smoky Mountain 500 that is about 80% unpaved and your bike is perfect for the ride. I'd be interested in how well planted they feel on a dirt/gravel road.

You can get the GPS track for that ride on ADVrider.com

I’ll have to check that out. We are more on road guys but plan to do some trail stuff when it warms up. This is the first bike I’ve had that I’d be comfortable spending anytime off-road.

I ride a lot off road and my thought, just looking at these tires, is that they'll be fine for all but the gnarliest stuff. Where the Wilds or TKC 80s come in to their own is in soft sand, mud, and climbing up rocky rutted up steep slopes. If it weren't for the long road trips I'm going to take this year on the GS, I'd just put another set of the Wilds on it and live with the noise/vibration/wear they offer.
