    Hello I'm going to buy new front and rear tires for my XRV750 RD07 and I have a problem with the dimension of the rear tire. My current dimension on the rear tire is 140/80 -17 and the tire that I think suit me best have a maximum dimension of 130/80 -17. Older Africa Twin’s seems to have...

    So after the Anakee3 which is a road tyre really they bringing out these babys. At the moment it seems only in new bmw sizes with no price or delivery details but this is a good looking tyre ANAKEE WILD With these tyres and the new Karoo's coming out maybe we get something better than...

    Anyone been trying out the michelin's new Anakee 3 yet? I've just bought a new rear anakee 2 and put in storage as I noticed they seem to be getting increasingly harder to find since the launch of its replacement. I'm not convinced that the Anakee 3 is a true dual purpose tyre but looks a...

    Designed with BMW 1200 GS riders in mind - these don't look very dual sport to me Michelin Unveils New Tire for Dual Sport Motorcycles - Motorcycle.com News
  5. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Gotta say that Michelin Anakees that have done 6k miles are Poo in the snow . . . Got the machine upright - nowt bent or broken . . . . . so I headed to lower levels . . . . nearly sea level on the Spey just down from Fochabers . . . Only minus 1.5 today, so things are warming up a bit...
  6. Africa Twin
    Hi all, I've been using TKC80's for years and was quite satisfied. In my oppinion they do perform well on-road as well as off-road. Off-road, well, at least as long as it's dry and rocky. The moment it gets sandy the tyre is no longer that convincing. For that reason, and seeing that Morocco...

    Spotted this one ... ... acommpanying the Metzeler crew at Mugello, lunchtime, 21/6/12.

    Just idly checking out tyre prices and have found that Crossan Motorcycles are doing Anakee 2 pairs with a £25 cash back to UK addresses (they say that details to claim the cashback will be provided - I'll ring them tomorrow). So, for the Transalp 650 with 90/90-21 and 120/90-17 tyre sizes that...
  9. For Sale / Wanted
    The starter switch has just gone on my DR350 so I have been scouring the garage for things to sell to get the necessary funds (I'm soooooooooooooo skint) :-D So I have this brand new Michelin T63 rear tyre for sale, bought in february but never fitted due to a change in plans. The size is...
  10. Africa Twin
    After fitting an 18" rear rim, I bid and won a new pair of deserts on ebay last weekend for around half the price of a new set:thumbup: Fitted the rear which was easier than i expected with its stiff four ply side walls. Still finishing off the bike rebuild so not had chance to try it out...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    I don´t like the way 150/60-17 original rear tire size fits on original 4.00 DID rim. I think a wide one (maybe 4.50) can make disappear the shouldered shape of tire. I can reach the front tire limit (using Michelin Power Race B), but never on the rear by reason the thin rim. Anyone fitted a...
  12. Africa Twin
    I've presently got Michelin Anakee's fitted to a recently purchased pre-owned RD07a, the front in need of replacing before the rear. My previous @ had K60's on it, I was impressed with the road holding and wear ability. My usage would be 80% road with forest trails and Spanish rocky trails...

    They seem to be as rare as rocking horse s$~t at the moment. I've managed to get the front done, but the rear still needs attention. Anyone have an insight on the possible current drought of Anakee rears? Si...
  14. Transalp
    Anyone using these yet?? I'm about to change both hoops and really fancy these, any feedback would greatly recieved. My Bridgestone BT squared off real bad so looking to new silica technology to help:p:blob:

    I'm a bit confused with the Michelin tyre website. Take a look at the link below and it gives a couple of options for my varadero. Now click on both the rear tyres and the little spider graph suggests that the anakees scoring 455454 are better all round than the pilot roads which score 345354...

    These tires look good and are pretty cheap. I'd like to know what you all think of them, as I can get a pair for less than the price of a new Sahara 3 rear...

    Since you lot in the UK and EU have had ready access to both the Michelin T63 and Continental TKC 80 for quite some time, I thought I'd ask for owner/user thoughts on how the two compare. TKC 80's have been available over here in the US for some time but the Michelin T63 has just been recently...
  18. Triumph
    Has anybody else fitted a set of pure road tyres on a Tiger. I have recently fitted a set of Michelin Pilot 2's to my 955i. I had Anakees before and the difference now is incredible. The road holding is superb wet or dry. So if anybody is thinking of fitting road tyres, I would highly recommend...
  19. Transalp
    Just looking on the michelin site and there's a tyre for the alp called the Sirac - any one used these ? Look a but more chunky than the Anakee ?
