I put about 25,000 kms on a set of Anakee 2's. They still had about 25% tread left. I changed to Anakee 3's and have about 15,000kms on those and they are still have lots of life left in them. I ride 70%gravel/dirt (neither the Anakee's or I like mud) and the rest pavement and I am not gentle on tires (average 10,000kms or less on my ST1300 PR4's). I can't seem to hurt the Anakee 3's and I am actually trying a bit because I want to switch over to the Mitas E07's next but am too cheap to throw away half of a tire! Not sure how much more they will go but they are long lasting.
Incidentally, I put about 6500 kms on a set of brand new K60 last fall while in South America. I was on a GS800. They were more than half wore out at the end and it was a 50/50 pavement/gravel ride. And they did not handle pavement well.
For me, it would be no contest. Anakee's over the Heidenau's for handling and longevity.
