Everyone likes a tire thread, huh? I saw these new tires from Michelin a few years ago and they've finally made it to the US. Dimitrios did a review already you should check out but what's interesting is he reports something like 9,000 miles on his rear tire (and still going?). I heard elsewhere reports of 6,000 miles, 7,000 miles and another that said "expect double the life of a TKC-80." What's interesting is a guy today on Facebook's "BMW R1200 GS Adventure (motorcycle)" page claims to have only gotten 1,000 miles so far and "the rear is about half done... I think 2k is going to be the limit." I spoke to another guy who tested these and he's not willing to go on the record yet but his feedback was "love the tires but they don't last as long as I thought." I don't doubt Michelin makes a great tire either but I'm wondering how many real life riders are going to see such high mileage numbers? What I'd love to see is some more reviews from you riders on what your experience is? I'm about done with my second set of the Vee Rubber VRM 401's so maybe I'll order a set of the new Anakee Wild's and tell you for myself. If you've ridden these new Anakee Wilds then do us all a favor and leave your review here so we all can benefit. Muchas Gracias!
