Came standard on my new guzzi V85tt I’ve done 13 000km and still got a fair bit of tread left. To the comments that they don’t handle, pump them up! Mine need to be 36 ft and 38 rear then handles good. Great in the wet, good on gravel, dirt, rough roads, enough grip to drag foot pegs and go pretty hard on the road. I’ll be replacing with mich road 5 trials as I prefer the extra edge grip and find the road 5s acceptable on the dirt roads I ride. But highly recommend the anakees, pump them up and crank in, the edges are softer and will grip!
Yes, I recommend this tire

I fitted these tyres in Belgium and headed east. Cruised through Holland, Germany, Switzerland and Austria - windy mountain roads with some highways. Then Romania and Bulgaria through rough potholed roads including the Transfagarasan. Roads improved in Turkey but Georgia held many surprises. Over the mountain pass to Russia in the wet. From Russia into Kazakhstan - mud, non-existent roads, potholes. Uzbekistan - same. Kyrgyzstan more of the same. Then into China for 29 days through Tibet and over multiple 5000 passes which degraded into slippery gravel. Heading south into Laos during the monsoon meant wet roads and torrential rains. Thailand was wet until things cleared traveling south. Finally the trip ended in Kuala Lumpur where the bike was shipped back to Australia. The tyre still have plenty of tread and grip left which is amazing considering the beating they have undergone. Pressures remained constant and grip was good under almost all conditions (deep mud and sand was always going to be challenging).
