Motoz Tractionator GPS tyres

I just put a set of these on my 16 GS, they replaced Anakee 3's. They certainly have a different feel to the anakees. A bit hard to explain but they make the bike feel heavier on the bitumen. They still handle the curves easily but arent as quick to turn in and out again as the anakees. I've only done a little bit of dirt and they definitely feel more planted than the anakees. I will get used to the feel of them soon enough. The good thing is that they are not a noisy tyre, pretty much the same as the 3's, maybe a touch noiser. After I've done some more k's on them I'll report back.

I also use the Motoz Tractionator GPS tires on my '17 GSA. I like the fact that the rear tire can be mounted in both directions. One direction for better on road performance and the other direction for off road. I'm planning on trying the new Michelin Anakee Adventure tires when my Motoz Tractionator GPS tire wear out.

I did a lot of research first and out of all the tyres available with good reviews I chose these. Mainly for better offroad performance without sacrificing too nuch road performance. Another big reason for choosing them was that they are a quiet running tyre, a noisy tyre would've driven me nuts and be changed again. I have done a few more k's on them and the heavy feeling is definitely not as noticeable. I just did some good mountain roads to finish scrubbing them in which probably helped. Although it's early days I am very happy with my choice.

Fyi I spoke to the bloke in the tyre shop about running the rear backwards (not an option for the front) and he said that from the feedback he has been given that the extra grip is very marginal but it wears out much faster.
