This is my 2nd Super Tenere’ and I have sampled several brand tires on the two. When Michelin offered the Anakee IIIs I had to try them out. I ride quite a lot (15,000 miles in 15 months) about 80% highway & 20% dirt/gravel roads and these tires are nothing short of amazing. Wet/ dry, on the street they are like Pilot Road 3s in terms of grip & handling. In dry dirt they work way better than they should! I am a Yamaha Dealer of 30 years and a Michelin Performance Tire Center also for well over 20 years so I can say I have several customers who have had the same results out of their Anakee IIIs.
