Should out last the PR 3s with ease . If I have any doubts about the trail max it’s the lack of dual compound rubber . Michelin seems to have it well developed . I get 18k kms from Annie 3s if the road is a bit twisty. Good to hear you got good mileage from the PR3s , I have the Road 5 s on the Thruxton R . They are supposed to be longer wearing than the 3s but so far not so sure .

Thanks Q had forgotten about black fly issue . Any word on how much of the road is still unpaved ?
More each year paved, but don't have an accurate map of paved/unpaved yet.

@CarlS have you checked Revzilla? They have them in stock, but checked their prices and it almost matches the Canadian pricing above. NOT a good deal IMO.
No, I haven't checked Revzilla. I will check their prices. I have bought my last two sets from Bike Bandit.

The Anakee Adventure should last 10k miles? I'll be happy if I get 6k out of them...10k would be amazing! I have yet to be on a tire that lasts more than 8k! The longest-lasting tires were 8k miles (Michelin PR3) on my Concours, 6k miles on any tire I put on my 2106 Trophy, and 3k on my Tiger.
Mike, 8000 miles is about what I get. I will see if these do any better.

Brooke, I was thinking about this tire thread last night and realized you mention 18k from Anakee III's? That's INSANE! Maybe a different bike, definitely different riding style...I had Anakee III's a couple of sets ago on my Tiger and they were done at 3k miles! I have now lost all hope in my Adventures lasting any longer than that! :y47:

@mike2411, Brooke is Canadian so he gave figures in kilometers. 18k kilometers is just over 11k miles; still a surprisingly good distance.

The post stated 18 k kms . I am on my third set of 3s now . The last set did 16 k kms of pure hiway , 18 k set spent a week around the Dragon . Got just 8 or 9 k kms from the original Pirellis . Have seen a few reports of guys doing 20 plus on 3s . My Tiger is an 800 not an 1800 . My Thruxton is a 1200 , original Corsas ,4300 kms , 2700 miles , thread bare . I have considered putting 3s on the thrux R but there are a couple of new sport/tours coming out this year with better wear promised . You must be getting Chinese Knock offs .

Chinese knockoffs?? :y23:

That is funny but it's because I ride like I stole it...always! I ride too hard and it eats tires! I commute 80 miles a day (round trip) and part of that daily commute is on a twisty mountain pass that I ride HARD! I ride my Tiger like it's on a track and that is my tire-downfall! I can't get more than 3k-6k miles on any tire since going to Triumph bikes, no more than 3k on any tire that has been on the Tiger...the bikes handle so well that it inspires "tire-melting" riding! So, my tire saga continues and sounds like it will always be an issue until I decide to slow down and that won't happen anytime soon (been doing it for 30 years)! BBEER

Not necessarily. You can save money by taking a little longer to get to your destination or you can save time by spending more money on tires. If my wife had her way it'd be the first, taking longer and saving money, but she's not getting her way on this one!!
