Yup been overall my favorite tire to date, and yeah I've ridden on more than a few different makes/models. Dry traction is ridiculous, wet traction is for sure good, and also handle fairly well on gravel and dry hard pack roads. They do hum, but are the quietest/smoothest tires I've ran in a LONG TIME.

I have them on my 2006 R1200GS and I am very happy with handling both wet and dry and wear. Actually they are the best wearing tires I have ever ran. At several thousand they are showing very little signs of wear.

Unfortunately I am really unhappy with how loud they are. I have TKC80 on my other GS and the Anakee 3's are several times more loud.

I have a brand spanking new set of A-3's sitting on the shelf waiting to be installed on either my sons 650 or mine, its a race to see who's need replacing first, his 705's or my Trailwings.

No opinion yet on handling or how long they last but I must say I heaven't heard a peep out of them since I put them on the shelf:grin2:.

My brothers girlfriend put a set of A-3's on her BMW-700 and just headed off on a 6 or 7 thousand kilometer road trip so I'll chat her up when she returns to find out how she likes them.

Best tires to date for me on the V2. They hum a bit but I just don't hear it in my Schuberth with ear buds and they quiet down a little with mileage. The TKC70s were a little louder than these. It is looking like they will go 10k+ miles but I am pretty easy on tires. Also, look at the PR4's (Pilot Road Trail).

I like them a lot. I’d like the look of a more aggressive tire, but in terms of performance for what I do they are probably ideal. They do hum a little which I wasn’t expecting given the street oriented look they have. I had them on gravel and dry dirt yesterday and they performed well. The front did wander a bit in loose gravel but a little more throttle and just allowing it to slide around a bit.

I sure hope they are good, i'm installing a set before my 5,000 - 6,000 mile trip to the Rockies!
The price was good and a $30 rebate too.

Just ease up on heavy right wrist action and you will have tire to spare. as previously said keep the tires inflated to 41 psi.

I heard they may be discontinued and $210 for a set is a great price. It's more like $31 less just for the rear tire, VStrom size.

Its actually $50 savings. 2wheel is $260.00 Revzilla is $210. I had a Shinko left over in my cart from another order the was throwing the numbers off.

The Hexhead GS's an DL650 use the same size tires. 110/80-19 and 150/79-17

I don't get the life out of them that others get but I love the traction and unless they stop building them I won't be buying anything else.

I purchased my '12 DL650 in Aug '18 with Anakee 3's on it. They looked reasonably new & the date codes were 2617 & 4117 (the tires were produced the 2nd 1/2 of 2017). I don't know how many miles the tires had on them prior to my purchase of the bike, but i put 6,000 miles on it & the tires have shown very minimal wear.

Yep, same here, 13000 miles out of the last two sets. I change them when the front is at 1.5mm tread depth. They used to be $300+.
