This Spring I tried a set of Anakee 3's on my F800GS. This is the new Michelin dual sport design that replaces the long-time favorite Anakee 2. Both are radials. Lots of pavement traction, but I sensed a labored feeling, and my average mileage dropped to 50 MPG. L to R: TKC80, Anakee 2, TKC80, Anakee 3 Just had the TKC80's installed, and my average MPG just jumped back to 57 MPG! My previous favorite tire combination of TKC80 front and Anakee2 rear had always settled in at about 56 MPG. That's more than a 10% hit in mileage for that new tire design. Dang... So, the mystery of high-rolling-resistance solved. Didn't see any mention of that in the Anakee 3 reviews. What am I always the only one to discover these things? They tell me that the Anakee 2's are now discontinued. I snagged one of the two remaining that my dealer had, but when that's gone, I'll be searching for a new favorite. For what it's worth... Greg Oh, yeah... The Anakee 3's are buzzier new than the TKC80's are! Of course, the TKC80's, which are quite smooth when new, get more buzzy (on pavement, of course) as they wear down, particularly the rear.
