  4. Metzeler Tourance NEXT?

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Has anyone fitted the latest version of the Tourance NEXT and if so how do they rate them? I need to replace my old normal Tourance rear on the TA600 and since the bike never goes off road thought I would opt for a road tyre and it seems to come out better than the Anakee 3 in tests and...

  9. Strange handling after fitting new tyres

    Mechanical Advice
    Hi Just fitted some anakee 3s to honda transalp 650. Bike seems to tip into corners realy easily, like too easily, nearly caught me out. Getting used to it but wondered if anyone can explain why. They seem much stiffer than other tyres , perhaps i could lower pressure a bit. Set at 30/ 36. Rick

  11. Which road tyres for XL700?

    Transalp
    The Anakee 2s on my XL700 are nearing the end of their life. I've been pleased with them but, having tried the Alp offroad a couple of times I'm reconciled to not doing it any more (too heavy for my skills). As I now have no need for a dual purpose tyre, what are the best road tyres I could use?
  12. Oh no not tyres again

    Africa Twin
    The Michelin Anakee 2 needs replacing on the rear, phoned up to order one today and low and behold they can only get the Anakee 3 which I don't really fancy. Is the Tourance a good match for the Anakee 2 and will it be ok with the Anakee 2 front (as there is plenty of life left in that) or is...
