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.Read All Reviews

I have put 151,000 miles on Michelin tires since I bought the GS in 2003. T-66's came stock and I went with Anakee's, Anakee2's and now the Anakee3. In my experience, this latest Anakee has some features that are better than the first two Anakee's, and some that are worse. Traction in both wet an dry are similar, with the Anakee2's being the best in my opinion. I always used the V-rated tires in all three models, and found that the Anakee3 has the best traction over tar snakes, especially in wet conditions. Mileage was about 20% better with the first one getting over 12,500 miles before it got down to the wear bands. The one issue that I don't like is the harmonic noise that you get between 35 and 45 miles per hour. It is the worst when the tire is new and goes away a little at a time until about 6000 miles when it seemed to be mostly gone. I have about 1500 miles on my latest tire and it seems to be doing it about the same. I know that it is a little more aggressive than the Anakee2 and is much better on dirt roads, with mud and sand performance being about the same in all three tires. I will probably replace the front with an Anakee3 when the time comes since I believe in running the same tire brand/model front and rear.Read All Reviews

I run a wide range of terrain from sand to rocky. This tire is quickly wearing out after only about 180 miles since new. I can't say that it hooks up supremely, either. The front matching tire is a full 3/8 narrower than the same size Pirelli mid-hard. It's twitchy like a pizza cutter wheel. I won't buy these ever again. I'm not a spin the tires kind of rider, either. I like to hook up and ride smooth. Sand...well, that can't be helped.Read All Reviews
