    Great Adventure tire
    I am an 80/20 road/dirt rider.
    After having ridden on all of the major brands of adventure tires, these are my favorites. They are not as aggressive in the dirt as some of the others but they more than make up with the excellent road handling.

    Dependable Performance-Reasonable Wear
    I'm not a reviewer, just reporting my experience. The A3 seems to be a good compromise for Road/Dirt in an 80/20 sort of way. It is a bit squirrelly on gravel, good on dirt and great on the road.
    I ran 15,000mi on my last one and hope for the same.

    Now, the A3 on the rear...maybe 5,000 mi if I'm lucky...

    Anakee 3 Front
    It's a great tire. Medium tread compound. I have 8K miles on the front and it is good for another 2K but I'm heading out on a trip that will be about 5K miles so I'm changing it out now. Generally, you will find that It will last last about 4K more miles than the rear. My rear Anakee 3 only last 6K before it hit the wear bars and had a big flat spot.

    Bad Tires in 21 Inch Size
    After reading a few positive reviews of this tire I bought it for my KLR650. What a huge mistake that was!

    Every step of the installation was incredibly difficult. And at the end the bead wouldn't seat. I used so much lube it was coming out the spoke holes and exploded a brand new tube trying to get the bead to seat.

    Turns out this is a common problem with this tire in the 21 inch size. Even our local motorycle tire shop in San Francisco refused to take a crack at it stating that he had already tried and failed with 21 inch A3s and didn't want to waste his time and my money.

    I did research and you'll find lots of posts showing this tire in 21 inch size is a problem for KLR, DR, and GS motorcycles.

    I called Michelin for help installing it and they were not helpful.

    RMATV/MC was sympathetic, but they wouldn't take the tire back.

    So now I have very expensive tire I can't use.

    For comparison: after giving up on the A3 it took me 10 minutes to perfeclty install a Heidenau K60.

    Awesome tires if you just ride your bike on-road. Great feel, and incredible mileage
    I have these on one of my KLR 650's and I'm on my second set, I love them. I use this bike strictly for commuting and ride it every day, so I wanted a street tire and ran across these. They're tight in the corners and feel great on the freeway. Despite others who reviewed said, there's no noise or howl from them, there's no knobs on the tire to make noise... Plus the mileage is incredible, I don't have bags on my bike, but I'm 270lbs and got 18,000 miles out of the rear tire (down to the wear bar) and the front could have probably gone another 3,000 miles. The only thing I could possibly complain about is they're a little short, what I mean by that is the speedo (front tire) is running fast, it reads 63mph at 60mph. I've verified this by multiple devices. And the engine is turning 400 rpm more (rear tire) than knobby dualsport tires I've ran in the past. But I have the bike geared up for the freeway so it wasn't bad.
    Excellent tires, I'd highly recommended.

    Surprisingly Good Tire Riding BMW 1200GSW
    Ok there may be comparable tires out there but I'm used to sport bike tires on my liter bikes and I was totally shocked at how much fun these are in the corners on pavement. Tight sometimes dirty, bumpy, twisty little single lane roads are just as fun as the smooth rolled asphalt ones. Never thought I'd enjoy the corners as much as I do on my RC8R. Maybe not quite as fast as when I drag a knee but equal if I don't.

    Yes they are a bit noisy but just noticeable. Nothing earplugs don't cure.

    They are wearing quite nicely, but anything is better than liter bike tires.

    Good all around tire.
    I am on my 3rd set of these tires. I would like to try something different but it's hard to change when something works so good! As far the noise goes, they do have a little bit of howl around 65 mph. However, I ride with ear plugs so it basically goes unnoticed the little I ride at that speed.

    NOISY Trumps Excellent Handling
    Purchased front and rear Anakee 3s about a month or so ago for 2008 BMW R1200Gs with 13K miles on it. Put about 1,000 miles or so on the tires at factory recommended pressures. Great cornering stability, wet surface traction, etc., but they are the NOISIEST tires I have ever owned or ridden on! 40-45mph and 60-65mph ranges are worst for incredible howling - - sounds like a wheel bearing is going or your tranny is on its last leg. Actually hurts my ears at times. In spite of their strengths in handling, etc., these tires are poorly designed for reasonably quiet road travel - - which is what most R1200GS owners are primarily using their bikes for. Michelin should have pulled these from the market a long time ago. And shame on BMW for deciding to use them as standard equipment on R1200GS models of recent manufacture. Who at Michelin or BMW actually TESTS any of these products? Would never buy this product again, because UNREASONABLY LOUD ROAD NOISE trumps just about everything in my book . . . especially with a bike that sports a heritage of quiet operation.

    front wore out first
    I have used Michelin tires for the entire 151,000 miles since I bought the bike new in 2003. First set was T-66's and the rest were Anakee, Anakee2 and Anakee3. Latest Anakee (the 3) has about the same traction characteristics as the previous Anakee and Anakee2, with the dirt performance being better. Mud and sand still the same. I bought the pair (front and rear) and mounted them at the same time, and ran the same tire pressure as the previous tires since 90+% of the riding is 2-up. There was less scalloping wear in the Anakee3, but instead of getting the 12,000+ miles that I have been getting on the previous tires, this one was down to the wear bands at 9500 miles. I replaced the front and it now has 4000+ miles and just recently had to change the rear tire which got nearly 13,000 miles. I will probably have to replace the front again before the rear wears out.
