Anakee Wild Review

Here is my review after one set of Anakee Wilds on my '14 V2:

Pros:
First off, this really is an incredible tire. This is my first large ADV bike (coming from a CRF 250R and a Triumph Speed Triple 1050), so I tend to ride the beat like a big supermoto. I took it easy at first, but they give huge amounts of confidence on pavement. I have dragged pegs multiple times with zero issues or flexing. Performance off road was also great and all surfaces. They clean extremely well in mud and even track through the Florida "Moondust" sand with not too much trouble. The front tire has 4500 miles on it and could definitely last much much longer. Zero issues with cupping in the front or rear

Cons:
- Price...If anyone has looked at the price on these suckers, it's ridiculous. I purchased these with a heavy discount from a friend for doing some work for him. I was going to replace just the rear and they are now more expensive than when they first debuted. I purchased a full set of Shinko 705s for 30 bucks cheaper than 1 rear Wild. Although the tires is great, the price is not just for a single father/college student

- Rear Tire life: Pretty much smoked (2-3mm left) in 4500 miles when guys riding 1200 GSAs are reporting 8000? Probably my fault for ripping on the throttle, but hey the V2 loves to ripped on As I said, zero issues with cupping and very little squaring off.

- Noise? : I question this because they can sound like a lifted mud truck going down the street, but they never bothered me a bit.

Thanks for reading and let me know if you have any questions!

Yup overall reviews of that tire are not real favorable "especially for the price", you should try the Shinko 804/805 big blocks if not yet.
